Women's Ministries

Our vision is to grow in relationship with Christ as a community of women, rooted in Scripture, pursuing His glory, and serving others in His name.

Bible Studies

Come and discover who God is, as He has revealed Himself in Scripture, and learn how to study His Word with both your heart and your mind. Studies take place on Monday evenings and Wednesday mornings. Our time together includes DVD teaching sessions and small group discussion time. Child care is available during our Wednesday morning study for a fee.

Women's Prayer

Prayer is an integral part of a vital relationship with God. Join with other women via phone or Zoom as we lift each other up to God as we pray for personal, church, and world needs. Contact us for more information.

Events

Southview Women’s Ministries offers various events throughout the year such as Paint Night, Christmas Dessert Night, and Spring Retreat. These are great ways for women to connect and introduce friends to the church community. 

Women's Mentoring

Life is hard, but we don’t have to do it alone. Let us connect you with someone who will walk with you and encourage you as you do life together. Alternatively, if you would like to walk with another woman, listening to, encouraging, supporting and praying with her on her life’s journey, we will equip you for that too.

Journaling

Journaling offers women an opportunity to reflect on God’s written word and prayerfully consider what is says about God, who God reveals Himself to be, and what that means for us. Our time together includes Scripture reading, writing and sharing opportunities.

Connect with Southview Men

Our Foundation

The foundation of Southview Men is men’s small groups where life on life happens, authentic community is fostered, and spiritual growth takes place. Our goal is to connect our men to small groups while at the same time creating other connection points in partnership with Family Ministries

Our Connection Points

Connection points during the year include: men’s small groups, sporting events (Turkey Bowl, May Bowl), Monday Night Football / NHL Events, men’s breakfasts, and our bi-annual Men’s Retreat

Discipleship at Southview

Getting our men involved and discipling others happens as we raise up men to facilitate and lead men’s small groups. As our men are devoted followers of Christ, our goal is to have strong families who are also devoted followers of Christ, strong church participants who are devoted followers of Christ, and strong communities comprised of devoted followers of Christ.

Seniors' Ministries

We offer numerous connection opportunities and seniors luncheons during the ministry year at Southview. Support groups for widows and spouses of those managing dementia and Alzheimers are also available through our Compassion & Care Ministries.

ALPHA

 Alpha is a series of interactive sessions exploring the basics of the Christian faith. Each session looks at a different question, and is designed to create conversation. No two Alphas look the same–they run in coffee shops, churches, bars, prisons, universities, schools and homes. There’s no pressure, no follow-up and no charge; it’s just an open, informal, and honest space to explore and discuss life’s big questions together.

FOOD

Whether it’s a group of friends gathered around a kitchen table, or a quick catch-up over coffee, food has a way of bringing people together. It’s no different at Alpha. All sessions start with food, because it’s a great way to connect, relax and build friendships.

TALK

The talks are designed to be engaging and inspire conversation. Usually around 30 minutes long, they explore the big issues around faith and unpack the basics of Christianity, addressing questions like “Who is Jesus?”, “Why and how do I pray?” and “How does God guide us?”

DISCUSSION

Probably the most important part of any Alpha: the chance to share thoughts and ideas about the talk without being corrected or judged. There’s no obligation to say anything; it’s an opportunity to hear from others and contribute your own perspective.

Adult Christian Education

Adult Christian Education classes take place on Sundays in the Board Room from 9:15 – 10:30 am.  Newcomers are always welcome.
