Welcome to South Shore!

In response to the COVID-19 Pandemic, South Shore UMC has made the following alterations to our Sunday Morning Worship Services, Church Gatherings, and Community Gatherings. It is important for us to share this information with our church family and the community as part of doing our part to protect and preserve individual and communal health during this time.

  • ​SSUMC Relaunch Leadership continues monitoring developments and infection rates related to COVID-19; this data will guide our team in determining when South Shore UMC returns to in-person worship and a greater in-person presence on our church campus.  ​
    • When SSUMC resumes in-person worship and a greater in-person presence on our campus:
      • All persons attending SSUMC when worship resumes will be required to wear masks.
      • All persons will be required to maintain safe social distancing between family groups. 
      • A complete assessment of SSUMC's Adaptation and Alterations for Returning to Public Worship are available by emailing the Church Office. 
    • SSUMC anticipates phasing in the return of on-campus activities at the church as pandemic conditions improve and the number of confirmed cases decreases.
  • Continue your support of what God is doing through South Shore UMC by:

    • Mailing your tithes and offerings to the church. 

    • Giving electronically by selecting Give and Serve in the header of this page and following the instructions provided.  

We look forward and pray toward the day when we can return to worship and church as usual. Until then, we invite you to participate in the following spiritual practice opportunities: 

  • Reading Psalm 91 each morning.

  • SSKids Daily Devotionals with Mrs. Jeanie streamed at 11 a.m. Mondays-Fridays and 10 a.m. Sundays via FacebookLive on the South Shore United Methodist Church - SS Family Worship Page.

  • Prayer requests may be submitted at any time to sarah@southshoreumc.com.

In this time of recommended physical distancing, remember that physical distancing does not equate to isolation. There are many ways for us to be the Body of Christ together even when we cannot gather together.

Our God is good. Our God is with us. Our God never fails.
