For several years, Southside has provided a Food Pantry for families in our community who are in need. Donations for the Pantry come from the members of the congregation and provide short-term help for people who do not have enough food for their families. The Food Pantry is open Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays from 9:30 to 11:30 A.M.
This program runs on Sunday evenings, from 4:00 to 5:30 at our church building.
If you are interested in being part of FriendSpeak as either a helper or participant, or if you have questions, please contact our office.
LINK (Lawrence Interdenominational Nutrition Kitchen) serves lunch to those in Lawrence who need a hot meal. Southside regularly participates in this community activity. We serve the meal on the third Tuesday of each even-numbered month. Our meal is started in the kitchen at Southside then finished in the kitchen at 10th and Kentucky where the meal is served. Typically, about 150 meals are served by about a dozen Southside volunteers.
God can turn your
mess into a message, your trial into a triumph, and your
test into a testimony!
For the past fourteen years, the Southside women's jail ministry team has
brought the Gospel to the women incarcerated at the Douglas County Jail.
Each Monday evening, two members of the team bring a lesson from God's word
and pray with and for those attending the study. Our hope is for them to
know who Jesus is, know that he offers salvation freely to whomever
recognizes their need for a savior, and to help them understand they are
loved and have great value to God.
