Session Update

We recently had the privilege of welcoming 18 new members (many pictured below) into the Southwood family. One of our greatest joys as a Session is getting to hear their stories and rejoice with them in God’s work in their lives. It is exciting to see the range of ages and life situations God has brought us in this group, and we look forward to serving Christ with these new members. Please join us in welcoming them and in thanking God for faithfully building his Church.

God has also been at work through our Jobs for Life partnership, where we—along with several of our local partners—recently celebrated our first graduating class. We are looking forward to being able to come alongside a new group of students and develop more mutually life-giving relationships when we start another class in January. Holding classes such as these requires many volunteers from Southwood and the broader Huntsville community, so there are plenty of places you can get involved in January.

The Session continues to be encouraged by God’s faithful financial provision for Southwood in this season. As has been typical for our congregation, though, we find ourselves needing a strong financial finish to the year in order to meet our budgeted income. Additionally, our Finance Committee has encouraged us to pray for God’s provision of a contingency fund so that we can proactively and wisely address capital repairs and improvements. If you have any questions regarding end-of-year giving, you may contact our church administrator, Janice Crowson, at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).

We particularly look forward to this advent season as we celebrate the birth of our Savior together. Join us on Sundays as we gather to worship the newborn King and Will preaches a Christmas sermon series on the identity of Jesus from Isaiah 9. You also won’t want to miss two of our favorite nights of the year: Fa La Lodge on the evening of Sunday, December 20, and communion services on Christmas Eve.
