Planning your visit

What to Expect

When you arrive, look for South Durham Church signs to guide you into the parking lot. Friendly faces will be waiting to greet you (look for the Welcome sign), hand you a bulletin, and guide you to the childcare check-in station or the sanctuary. We provide childcare for children under the age of five during our worship service.

When you enter the sanctuary, we'll make sure you find a seat. The worship service will include contemporary and traditional songs, a sermon, and Communion. An offering is collected, but guests are not expected to give. The bulletin you receive will walk you through each part of the service so you won't feel lost.

Ministries

Early Childhood and Elementary

SoDu Kids

During our worship service, children from birth through fifth grade are invited to participate in fun, engaging, and secure environments where they learn about the God who loves them. Our great volunteers teach age-appropriate Bible lessons, sing songs, and play with the children and students. Check-in for SoDu Kids is easy to find and opens 15 minutes before the service begins.

Life Together

Community Groups

Throughout the week, we meet together in homes to encourage each other, study the Bible, and pray together. These groups give us the chance to go deeper in our lives together and in our walk with Christ. Non-Christians and newcomers are welcome, and most groups provide teaching for children through Kids in Community, too.

Community Groups are currently on break for the summer.

Middle and High Schoolers

SoDu Youth

Youth ministry at SoDu exists to come alongside parents and caregivers in the discipleship of children as they grow into adulthood. Our aim is to make spiritually mature disciples who are equipped to do the work of ministry, preparing youth for the independence of the college years and beyond. Our youth leaders engage the students in Bible study, fun activities, prayer, and discipleship relationships.

SoDu Youth meets weekly on Wednesday nights from 6:30–8:00 p.m. at a member's home in south Durham.
