Transformed . . . Nurtured . . . Sent

These three words do a great job of describing the people of Southland Baptist Church. We're in the process of being TRANSFORMED by God's grace, NURTURED in Christ's love, and SENT in the Spirit's power to join God in his redeeming work around the world. Whether that means we are sent to the other side of the globe or across the street, we believe that we are a people on a mission. This mission originates in the very heart of God. For God sent his own Son, Jesus Christ, into the world that we might truly live. He has sent his Spirit into the world to empower others to share the good news of Jesus with all they meet.

We're glad that you've stopped by our website. We hope you'll take a look around and get a better feel for who we are and what God is doing in and through us. But most of all, we pray that you'll feel sent our way . . . For we invite you to join us on the journey.

Thought for Thursday - September 25

Today may be the first afternoon that feels like fall. The air is crisp and the temperature is just cool enough that you might think of driving around with the windows down. It is a nice day, a day that makes you feel just a little bit more alive, a day that makes you grateful for life itself.

This Sunday we’ll be looking at a passage from James in which he warns against being friends with the world. We’ll have plenty of time Sunday to dive into what he means by “being friends with the world” but let me take this short space to make clear what he doesn’t mean. He doesn’t mean we aren’t allowed as Christians to enjoy days like today!

All Church Ski Trip - March 15-19, 2015

Here's a great opportunity for you to ski Crested Butte or simply relax and enjoy the amenities of a luxury resort. Crested Butte is a quaint, fun town with lots of options for relaxing and entertainment and we will be staying at the ski-in/ski-out Elevation Resort. This trip is designed for families, single adults, couples and youth (8th grade and younger must come with their family).

Costs vary depending on what you plan to do and your age. We will work with you on calculating your final cost. The best thing to do is to contact Jill (949-9633) to work out the cost of what you would like to include. Here's a general idea that includes lodging, ski rental and lift tickets for youth traveling with family and adults (meals, spa treatments, transportation, etc. not included).

Thought for Thursday - September 18

This Sunday Bobie Miller will be our special guest in worship. For the last 35 years, Bobby has served as the Music Minister at South Main Baptist Church in Pasedena, TX. South Main is Tim Lyle’s childhood church. Bobie, Tim, and the sanctuary choir and orchestra will lead us in a morning worship service filled to the brim with the songs of our faith.

Songs are such an important feature of our faith. Whether ancient hymns or modern choruses, the church’s music serves an important function in both worship and discipleship. While you can certainly have a worship service without singing, singing almost always makes a service better. Some emotions, some expressions of faith, simply can’t be expressed with the spoken word alone.
