Learn and Grow at South Main.

Midtown Midweek

Wednesday, APRIL 1, 2020 6:30 PM

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.

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.

Nursery & Mini-MainKids – Infants through age 3

In the Family Ministry, one of our strongest desires is for even our youngest ones to sense that God loves them and that church is a good place to be. Embracing and caring for your child’s physical needs in a safe environment, surrounded by loving adults who demonstrate Christ’s love, are what matter most at this stage.

MainKids — Pre-Kindergarten through 4th grade

At this stage in life, engaging a child's interests, forming friendships, and discovering God’s character through the Bible and experiences with God’s family are the things that matter most. Every Sunday, kids have opportunities to read, sing, play, think, serve, worship, create, and pray with dedicated teachers that welcome them by name, connect with them, and help connect them to Jesus.

The 527 Tribe — 5th through 7th grade

Affirming each child’s personal faith and life journey is what matters most in navigating the constantly changing pre-teen years. Our "527 Tribe" of 5th to 7th graders has a dedicated space and programming designed to help them build deeper connections with each other and with adult mentors, as we explore how the Bible guides us in our lives on Mondays through Sundays and find opportunities to learn, give, and lead.

Youth — 8th through 12th grade

We know each of our kids and their families—and in their final years under our care, we pray for them and surround them with people and programming that aim to send them out into the world with a lasting and authentic faith in Christ, which they can claim as their own.

Celebrations and Milestones

Marking milestones in a child’s life calls attention to important transformations, and celebrating milestones together is an important spiritual discipline. At South Main, we pause our routines to recognize, as a church family, six important milestones in the lives of our children and families.

Play Days (Parents' Day Out)

Play Days is a Parents' Day Out program dedicated to preschoolers and their parents, and is an extension of the South Main Baptist Church Family Ministry. Children, from birth through pre-kindergarten, enjoy educational, spiritual, and physical play in a happy and loving environment. Play Days meets on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9:30 AM to 2:30 PM, with additional extended hours available, not just during the school year but through the summer as well.

“Worship, discover, share” is South Main’s roadmap for Christian discipleship. Each week, we endeavor to worship God, discover God’s Word, and share with each other and those in need, as we seek balance, direction, and a sacred rhythm for our lives.
