Becoming a church our city and world would miss if we were gone.

We believe Jesus calls us to impact the world around us. South doesn’t exist just for ourselves, but rather to respond to the unique felt needs in our community. This may look like serving in our Food Bank, supporting our local ministry partners, and being an outward-facing church. In Local Outreach, we desire to love like Jesus, respect, and value everyone, build relationships, partner with and empower others, and invite people into meaningful and transformative experiences.

South Fellowship Food Bank

Our Food Bank supports anyone who could use some help with food for their household. Each person who comes through our doors has a name and a story, and together with Jesus, we create a safe place where everyone is known, cared for, and encouraged. Our Food Bank thrives because many volunteers work together, pitching in with what they love to do. Our team members pick up from local grocery stores, sort food, get to know shoppers as we serve them food, and keep all the behind-the-scenes things running. If you’d like to join our team, please fill out our Serve at South form.


Together Teams

Do you have a project or activity in mind that would serve our local community? We’d love to hear about it! We’re always looking for passionate people in the South community who are interested in bringing people together to address needs in our area. These “Together Teams” could work with the homeless, immigrants, or refugees, help at a neighborhood school, partner with a local nonprofit, beautify the neighborhood, or do something else we haven’t considered yet. Fill out our Project Pitch Form to share your thoughts and to find out how South can support you.

“By being a part of this team, I have grown in my joy of the Lord for His Excellence and caring for those who are poor in spirit. I am thankful when I recognize and am recognized by some of the unsheltered people in our community because of my service at GraceFull and the Food Bank. I am grateful that I have grown in compassion for these people.”


” [I] really enjoy volunteering at [the Food Bank] on Saturday mornings. We are helping many in the community and also making good friends!”

“[First Mile Initiative] was valuable to find ways to serve as a family. Such a win to serve others in a world where self seems to be the focus.”


“We are truly grateful for your support as we strive to respond to neighbors in need of a helping hand.”

Love INC

“I really enjoyed cleaning up around Love INC! The employees at Love INC were welcoming and worked alongside us and it was all around a great experience.”


“I wanted to thank you for everything. That was so humbling. Everyone just wanted to help in any way they could. I don’t think I have ever experienced so much love. THANK YOU.”
