We’d like to invite you to join us at Southdale for a very special season of worship this December. Make the Advent journey toward Christmas with us this year as we remember how Christ entered the World at his Incarnation and as we look forward to his promised return.
Advent worship will include the lighting of the Advent wreath, the singing of some much loved Advent hymns, and a weekly celebration of the Eucharist. We’ll be studying the Gospel texts for Advent, celebrating the fact that Hope has Come into our world.
Celebrate with us each Sunday in December at 10:30 am.
Join us on Christmas Eve for a family worship tradition. We will be hosting our annual Christmas Eve Candles and Communion Service on Tuesday night, December 24 at 5:30 pm. This special sacred time will feature the reading of the Christmas story, singing of many favorite Christmas carols and the celebration of the Lord’s Supper around the altar.
Make worship a part of your family tradition this Christmas, and join us for Christmas Eve Communion.
Southdale will again offer an indoor Trick-or-Treating option for neighborhood children this year. Our annual Trunk or Treat event provides a safe, warm place to collect Halloween candy and treats for your kids.
When: Thursday, October 31st
6:00 – 7:30 pm
Where: Southdale Church of the Nazarene
530 W 53rd Street, Anderson

All of us struggle with questions like these. We hunger to live a life that matters. Our current sermon series explores these questions. Together we are learning what it means to make a difference in our congregation and our community, a difference that will last.
Join us on Sunday mornings at 10:30 am, from now through October, and learn how to live a life that matters.
Southdale is pleased to welcome the Tribute Quartet back to Anderson for our annual Pastor Appreciation Concert and Dinner on Sunday, October 20,. The concert will be during the 10:30 am worship service, and an all-church pitch-in dinner will follow the concert.
Tribute’s love for southern gospel music is surpassed only by their love for Jesus Christ, and their heart for the Gospel shines through in their music and personality. Whether it is the lead singer, Gary Castro’s, heartwarming stories or the rich sense of humor of their baritone and piano player, Josh Singletary, you will fall in love with this group’s ministry.
In 2008 they were voted “The 2008 Horizon Group of the Year” by readers of the The Singing News Magazine at the National Quartet Convention in Louisville, just a few months after being named the SGN’s “2008 Breakthrough Artist of the Year.” And the awards don’t stop there. Their song “Homecoming Day” won the 2013 Absolutely Gospel Music award for Best Song of the Year, and their single “Good News From Jerusalem” was #1 on Singing News’ Southern Gospel chart for August 2013.
The Hearld Bulletin’s features writer Nancy Elliot recently heard about the upcoming Paul’s Journey concert and decided to take a closer look at Southdale. The result was a feature story on the church and Pastor Brad which ran on the front page of their Faith section. In case you missed it, you can read the full article on the Herald Bulletin’s website here.
On Friday night, September 6th, Paul’s Journey will be returning to Southdale for a special concert. This Houston based southern gospel quartet has been to Southdale once before and quickly became one of Pastor Brad’s favorite quartets.
The concert will begin at 7:00 pm at Southdale. We’re asking for a $10 donation at the door and will be taking up a love offering to further support their ministry.
Sunday, September 15, 2013 will be our annual Back to Church Sunday celebration and picnic. It’s a great opportunity for those who’ve fallen out of the habit of weekly worship to reconnect with Body of Christ and for those who have little or no church experience to get to know our congregation.
We invite you to join us for Sunday School at 9:30 am and for our morning worship service at 10:30 am. Immediately following the morning service, we will have a picnic on the grounds featuring great food as well as games and prizes for the kids.
Bring the whole family and join us for Back to Church Sunday 2013
This Sunday evening, July 7, Southdale will be hosting Adam’s Voice in concert at 6:00 pm. Their singing/songwriting ministry blends familiar songs with their own original music to encourage and inspire the church and share the gospel with the world.
There will be no admission charge for this concert, but a freewill offering will be taken to support the ministry of Adam’s Voice.
One of the primary ways the Church of the Nazarene reacts in times of natural disaster is with disaster response teams coordinated through Nazarene Disaster Response (NDR) and Nazarene Compassionate Ministries (NCM). These first responders head into storm ravaged areas to help with clean up and first wave response. And they take with them Crisis Care Kits designed to supply storm victims with basic hygiene items to get them through the first days after a disaster.
Southdale’s Nazarene Disaster Response coordinator, Bob Misner, will be taking Southdale’s NDR trailer to Oklahoma to assist in response efforts with NDR and NCM. The trailer is equipped with tools necessary to assist with clean up efforts, but we want to fill up every remaining space in the trailer with Crisis Care Kits to be used in the recovery. To fill the trailer, we are planning to pack Crisis Care Kits this Saturday morning from 9:00 – 11:00 AM.
To accomplish this mission, we need to things from you:
We need your help. Join us Saturday from 9-11 to help pack kits.
We need your donations. Even if you can’t help pack the kits, you can bring the supplies necessary to fill the kits to the church. See the list of items for the kits below.
