When are your services?
Our main worship services are Sunday at 9AM and 5:30PM. Each service has uplifting music and a message of hope. Nurseries for your small children are provided for all services. All services are available in person or online at southportbaptist.online.church
6:30 PM Discipleship & Bible Study
Worship is the act of loving and responding to God! Through the heart-warming, conservative music and the clear, Bible teaching and preaching in our services, your heart will be inspired to love and to respond to God.

Am I expected to
give in the offering?
No. We don't invite you to Southport for your money. We want our service to be a gift to you. We hope you will find in this place a warm family spirit, truth from God's Word, and a place where you can grow in God's grace. Please don't feel any obligation to participate in the offering as a guest
