At South Shore, we offer two different styles of worship on Sunday mornings:
Traditional: Our 8:30 a.m. service is a spirited traditional style of worship led by a choir employing the use of creeds, liturgy, traditional hymns, and instrumental special music.
Modern: The 11:00 a.m. service is driven by a worship band playing the latest in contemporary worship music.
South Shore streams both of our Sunday Morning Worship Services via
South Shore UMC's YouTube Channel
which can be viewed by visiting
and selecting the Sunday Service and Style you prefer by date.
A YouTube Account is not required to view our worship services.

Interested in coming? Here’s all you need to know:
Messages are meant to be inspirational and educational as we connect with one another and seek to work out our own salvation through relationship with Jesus Christ.
You can expect to hear good theology and also walk away with ways to incorporate the gospel in your everyday life.
We celebrate Holy Communion the First Sunday of each month and in special evening worship services throughout the year. At South Shore, we welcome people to receive the sacrament from Christ's open Communion Table by:
Gluten-Free Communion at the Altar
Celebration Communion Cups at your seat
Intinction (receiving a piece of bread and dipping it into a juice-filled chalice)
You need not be a member of this church or any church to come and receive the gift of grace in
Christ's holy sacrament. We welcome folks worshipping with us at home on First Sundays to set
their tables with bread or crackers and juice, water, or lemonade and join us in this holy
celebration of remembrance and thanksgiving.
We believe supporting the mission and ministry of the church financially is an expression of maturing discipleship. The intentional and consistent stewardship of resources is enables the church to make vital impacts in our community and around our world. We invite you to give as you feel led through Sunday offerings or giving online.
We offer child care and children’s ministry options for our 11:00 a.m. Sunday worship and special worship services. Each Sunday morning service includes a specially prepared Children's Moment.
There is a high level of lay person involvement in worship, including our greeters, worship support team members, musicians, and staff; we welcome people to respond to God's call in offering their gifts and service at South Shore.
The services start on time; many people arrive early to fellowship in our Welcome Center - located though the large portico on the Westside of the building - enjoying sweets and conversation.
We want to call everyone by name and encourage everyone to wear a name tag, which may be obtained and completed at the Welcome Center.
Dress is informal; please come as you are, even for our traditional service.
Relationships are the heartbeat of our congregation. We look forward to welcoming you in worship and connecting with you in service.
