OUR VISION OF CORPORATE WORSHIP

​Since the inception of Southwest in 1959, it has always been our first priority to foster an environment where all can experience authentic worship of our God with joy and to explore the wonders of Christ Jesus our Lord and Savior. Each Sunday we worship in 2 distinctly different styles; a traditional style, and a contemporary style. While the styles differ the message will always remain biblically focused, practical, challenging, and uplifting.  Central to our meeting times is communion, which is celebrated weekly.  We believe Communion is our Lord's invitation to His table and is therefore open to all who love Him and wish to honor Him in this way, all are welcome to partake of this communion at Southwest Christian.  We hope you will join us with Christians throughout the world in worship of our amazing God!.
Traditional Worship - 8:30 AM
The worship and music style in this service center around traditional hymns and it is lead by a worship leader and a pianist. We also serve communion every Sunday for all who love the Lord Jesus Christ and wish to honor and remember His sacrifice in this way. We also share in an offering time (while visiting guests are welcome to participate, they are not expected to contribute). Our Senior Minister brings a message from the Bible for about half an hour. All in all, the total time of this Worship runs about an hour.

Sunday Small Groups - 9:45
Each week we offer discussion based small group classes for adults, teens, and children.  Our goal during this time is provide in depth studies and give our people opportunities to ask questions and dig deeper into God's word.  Current adult offerings include a study focused on a book of the bible, a women's bible study, and Dave Ramsey's Financial Peace University.  

Contemporary Worship - 11:00 AM
Before worship, you are welcome to get a free cup of coffee in the lobby and meet other folks. As you enter the worship center, you'll be greeted and handed a bulletin. We usually start with an upbeat song with our praise band and singers. We sing a few more songs (it's okay if you don't know some of them at first). We also serve communion every Sunday that is open to all who love the Lord Jesus Christ, we share in an offering time (visiting guests may, but are not expected to contribute) and one of our Pastors speak and teach from the Bible for about half an hour. Some times we have a solo, video, or other special presentation that deals with the weekend's topic. All in all, the total length of this Worship time is about an hour. Our hope is that our guests will truly feel at home and comfortable among friends.

Opportunities to Serve

It is our priviledge to lead the congregation in worship each Sunday. It takes more people than you see on stage to make each week happen. If you can play an instrument, sing, or simply have a passion for music and would like to be trained to join our sound/lighting team we'd love to visit with you and explore your passion!

  • Vocalists: Whether your passion is for contemporary worship music or traditional hymns, if you have a good singing voice and a basic understanding of harmonies we have a place for you. You must be available to attend weekly practices.
