Sermon – "Heaven Came Down"

On Pentecost Sunday, we examined the story of the momentous Pentecost events in the book of Acts. It all began with an instruction from Jesus that the disciples should first simply wait for the arrival of the Holy Spirit. Soon, they received what had been promised and went out to the city proclaiming with divine inspiration that the world had entered a new era in which the power of God now resided within those who believed. This week, just wait on God focused on your faith and listen for what might come next.

Worship

We believe the worship of God is unceasing and preeminent in our lives. It is only from the worship of God that we can discover more about who God is and share that which God has done for us. On Sunday mornings at 10:00, we gather in our Sanctuary to worship God communally. South Main’s worship services are usually led musically by organ, piano, Sanctuary Choir, and/or one of our other choirs or ensembles.

Adults

We believe people are created and called by God to grow throughout our lives as individuals and together in faith as God’s family.  At South Main we become more like Jesus over the arc of our lives as we discover God’s family and discover God’s Word. We discover God’s Word when we cultivate Biblical literacy, engage in theological curiosity, and nurture growth in wisdom.  We discover God’s family when we connect in community, embrace our calling, and share our gifts and resources for God’s Kingdom.

Families

The Family Ministry at South Main celebrates the big and small of childhood from the birth of a child to their send-off from high school into a world of their own. We value excellence, creativity, intentionality, and safety in all that we do. And we strive to combine the influence of a multigenerational church—with a history of servant leadership, educationally rich discipleship, and glorious worship—with the influence of the home, where parents and caregivers have the greatest effect and understanding of their children.
