It's not about us.
We are the hands and feet of Christ. What does that mean? As fully devoted followers of Christ, we are called to serve others and show them the same grace and mercy that we have been given. At Southwood we aim to care for each other well at church, reach out to others in our community, and improve lives around the world. You'll find Southwood reaching out to friends, colleagues and teammates right where they are doing life. You'll also see dedicated volunteers stepping out to meet real needs of real people in our area. Serving not only helps you bring a gift to others but will change your heart as well.Community
In our community we want to make a difference where we live, work and play. After all, it is changed people that change communities. We provide support for vital community organizations that serve our community. An example is the small neighborhood in north Huntsville named Lincoln Village. Through a 20+ year commitment to this community, we support a multi-faceted approach to the renewal: housing renovation, school tutoring, food pantry, clothing closet, medical and legal services, and a dedicated focus on affecting the lives and living conditions of residents.World
We believe that God's grace, demonstrated to us in the radical love and sacrifice of Jesus Christ, has the power to transform our world. We support world missions through full-time missionaries and our participation in short-term mission trips. People that go see their own hearts changed as they work to improve the lives of those in need. We give to assist those that travel to see that those needs are met. Consistently, we need to pray for those that go as well as the lives and communities they touch. Our desire is that these mission efforts will grow and multiply, transform the culture around them and continue far into the future, long after we may be gone.
