We also want to introduce you to our Interim Worship Leader, Kevin Beck. Bro Robert and SSBC Personnel committee, along with our Deacon chairman and vice-chairman, believe God is taking care of His church with such a talented, gifted leader as Bro Kevin.
Kevin will be at SSBC Wednesday, February 24th to meet with our Praise Team. Please keep this transition a matter of prayer.
Thank you for your cooperation.

Worship The Lord In Giving

Thank you for your faithful giving to Southside Baptist Church. We are adding an additional way to give which we trust will make this process even easier for you. Let me introduce you to TITHE.LY.
TITHE.LY is a branch of the Christian company Church Management. This well-respected Christian organization has launched a division to provide mobile and online giving opportunities to the local church. The giving process is easy, secure, and used by thousands of churches across the country. You will have 3 options:
1. You may download the free TITHE.LY app from the app store. Once installed, the app will direct you to create your own account. They will ask for some personal information (which will not be shared or sold) and an email address. You will then set up your account and password, along with a 4-digit pin number. Your next step will direct you to find your church’s name, Southside Baptist Church, Fayette, AL. Once your church is entered, you have 2 ways to pay: Debit/credit card or your checking account. Those tabs are at the bottom of the screen. You may set up recurring payments if you wish. There is a small transaction fee that you can choose to pay or the church will be required to pay it.
2. You may also give directly through the website at https://tithe.ly/give?c=697432. Or you may click on the “Donate” button below. The process will be similar to #1 above.
3. Thirdly, you may also choose to have an automatic check sent from your personal bank. Please contact your financial institution for details.
Remember, you don’t have to change your current way of giving. As always, checks and cash are appreciated. We are simply providing an additional way to give. Again, thank you for giving to the Lord. If you have any questions, please call our church office at (205) 932.6804
