This Sunday, August 9th, we will again have 2 morning worship services.  Members whose last names begin with A – L are asked to attend the 9:30 service.  Those whose last names begin with M – Z are asked to attend the 11:00 service.  Bro Robert will be back with us bringing our morning message.  We will have a special time of corporate prayer for our country, our schools, and our brothers and sisters struggling during this pandemic.  Our Praise Team, musicians, and media team will be leading in praise and worship.  Cindy Files, Julie Stough, and Alan Lang will bring special music.  Our Sunday School lesson (Malachi 2:1-17), taught by Mark Brown, will be streamed on FB Live and broadcast live on WLDX from our sanctuary at 8:30 am. This lesson will be available for you to watch on-line at any time.  Worship will be broadcast live on WLDX at 11:00 and on FB Live at 9:30 and 11:00.

Parents and Children, Miss Kaitlin and Miss Dana are preparing “take-home” packets for our children each week.  These packets may be picked up in the foyer as you enter worship.

We plan to gather next Wednesday night, August 12th, at 6 pm for our weekly round table discussion.  Leading us will be Bro Robert, Mark Brown, Gary Davis, and Stephen Fulmer. Our youth will meet upstairs in the youth room at 6 pm. We will observe safe-distancing guidelines as we meet.

Here are a few important things to remember:

  • Our youth will have a Back 2 School Cookout on Sunday night, August 16, at 6:00 pm.
  • Our Nominating Committee for the next church year is hard at work. Please be open to serve at SSBC.  Members include Donna Brown, Malissa Bryan, Laura Fulmer, Mitzi Rickman, Ben Stough, and Bro Rick
  • Church Prayer sheets are available as you enter and leave the worship center.
  • We are disinfecting the worship center before each service. Between services, pew markers are moved to allow 2nd service worshippers to sit in different seats from the earlier service.  Our desire is to make worship at SSBC as safe as possible.
  • Our fall schedule will be announced this Sunday…plan to join us this week in worship.

“SERVE” Week 2020

 Our own Donna Brown is coordinating another “SERVE” project for Fayette County High School.  Different this year, projects will extend a full week instead of just a Saturday.  In order to keep a big group from being at the high school at one time, Donna would like for you to let her know the date and project you wish to work on.  She will then coordinate the individuals/groups helping.  SERVE week will begin this Saturday, August 8th and conclude on Sunday, August 16th.  Projects include:

Paint teacher’s lounge

Paint 2 classrooms

Mulch the bed in front of the high school and around the Tiger sign

Assemble and install 2 basketball goals

Work on the Volleyball court

Wash the bottom windows in the Commons

Pressure wash the sidewalks on campus

Electric pressure wash the bathrooms


Please contact Donna Brown if you are interested in helping.


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
