As a musician, I visited many churches. When I decided I needed a church family, I remembered South Main.

South Main has a lot to do with how I judge my life's shortcomings for the better.

I don't feel intimidated by other people's knowledge of the Bible or their faith. I feel comfortable asking questions.

South Main has given me accountability and involvement with others who love Jesus Christ

On my first visit, everyone I talked to stopped what they were doing and listened as if I was the only person there.

South Main is a thoughtful and kind family. We take our commitment to be the family of God for you in this place seriously.

I taught her children and grandchildren in Sunday School, and she taught mine.

We love that we have South Main standing with us to teach our son about God and Christian values.

Fresh Faith. Vintage Church.

From Pastor Steve:


Dear South Mainers,

As you are probably aware, the Harris County Judge has extended the stay-at-home order to extend through April 30. This is consistent with guidance received at the federal, state, and city levels. For this reason, coupled with our own judgment, the South Main congregation will continue to worship...

Mark 12: Listen here 

As Mark chronicled Jesus’ last week, it became clear that Jesus threatened the status quo because the Pharisees and the Herodians came together to entrap Him into saying something that would either make the people angry enough to abandon Him or make the Romans angry enough to kill Him.

Need Some Words of Encouragement?





The United States Navy is skilled at many things, not least among these is how it names its vessels. There are ships called the Audacious, the Brave, the Comfort, the Defiance, the Dauntless, the Hope, the Sturdy, the Tranquility, and the Victorious, but my favorites are these: the Resolute, the Intrepid, and the Onward.

A Holy Week Prayer



This Sunday we gather online for worship on Palm Sunday, faced with the paradoxical story of triumph and humility communicated to us within the story of Jesus’s palm-lined entrance into Jerusalem at the beginning of Holy Week. Join your church family for worship at smbc.org as together we humbly enter Holy Week moving toward the tragic and humbling events of Good Friday, then divinely, mercifully, and gracefully onward toward the triumph of Easter Sunday.

Church campus is closed.

Matt Walton will lead us in a weekly Bible study through Paul’s letter to the Philippians. Paul wrote this letter from prison, and expressed a deep longing to see his Philippian friends face to face. In their separation Paul reminds his readers of God’s presence and work in the world and in us. Philippians calls us to hope, gratitude, and perseverance in the midst of hardship.

Sundays at South Main

South Main is a family of grace, discovering Jesus Christ together and sharing His love with the world. Every Sunday we gather for worship and fellowship, beginning early with Manna worship with our homeless neighbors, and continuing with study and fellowship in our Sunday School communities, traditional worship in the Sanctuary, and lunch in the Fellowship Hall. December Worship is at 10:00 AM.

Family Ministry

Our Family Ministry celebrates and nurtures children from infancy though high school graduation. Every Sunday, led by committed and caring adults, kids open Bibles, sing, learn, worship, and play in safe, consciously designed spaces. Throughout the week, kids enjoy music activities, Play Days (parents' days out), camps, and mission opportunities. We also provide support and community for parents and caregivers, so that families can grow together toward authentic and lasting faith in Christ.

Music Ministry

Music speaks a language that words alone cannot. With vocal and instrumental ensembles for all ages, South Main uses the language of music to express the joys and sorrows of our daily lives in worship and ministry.

Welcome to South Main.

We're Right Here.
