Pursuing Wholeness

Jesus models what it means to be a whole human being, and we long to live in his way. Here at South, we value being fully integrated people — Physical, Emotional, Mental, Spiritual, Relational, Vocational, and Financial — offering all of ourselves to God.


Support Groups at South

None of us are perfect, and there is zero shame in reaching out for help. We strongly believe in creating a space where our fears, failures, and brokenness can be restored and made whole. Our support group offerings vary based on semester, and we encourage you to see if there is one that could be helpful to you.

“I accepted Jesus in my early 20’s, after which I made my share of unhealthy choices. Though I often gave up on myself, I came to know a God who never gave up on me. His grace brought me absolute freedom over drugs and alcohol and is now restructuring my view of intimacy to align with what he intended for me all along. I’ve currently taken a leadership role at Celebrate Recovery to serve others who have struggled in areas that seem out of their control. My vision is for others to know our Lord the way I do. Connection with him is the answer.”

“The Overcome group was very impactful. I was impressed that a qualified professional was leading it and that a South staff member supported it. It was probably one of the more important things I have ever been a part of at South.”

Todd S., Overcome

“We likely all have loved and lost at some point, but when we get to bear that injury with one another as a church; authenticity, joy, and peace are the result.”

April S., GriefShare

“I have a real connection to the leader Nicole, she calls me family. Anytime I’m scared and in a low place, she has made herself available. I was lost, now I have a foundation of faith. [I] don’t only look forward to Tuesday night, but I’m now coming to church at South Fellowship. I’m going to volunteer. Doing one day at a time through the power of Christ Jesus.”

“The Overcome class was great! My story is about the sadness of my oldest son not speaking to me. I am a recovering alcoholic. I’ve learned how to handle my emotions.”

“I’ve felt lost most of my life, always searching for something and especially in the last four years after moving from Florida for work and knowing no one. I used cigarettes to cope and would find myself “needing” some drinks at the end of every day. I didn’t like my choices so I turned to God for his guidance and support. He led me to South to a Celebrate Recovery program in which I found that I was not alone. It allowed me to grow so much in my faith, I then started to attend services shortly thereafter and feel that He has put me right where I needed to be. I am so grateful for this church, its leaders, its congregation, and for the Celebrate Recovery program. Thank you, South for your love of Jesus and your messages of love and inspiration. It has impacted our family in so many positive ways over the last year and I am so extremely grateful!”

“CR [has] excellent leadership. Welcoming, accepting, kind, and loving group of people. Excellent praise and worship music and prayer.”

Michele D., CR Attendee

“The one thing we have in life is our trials, but in Overcome, God weaves those trials into a story, and we leave knowing and owning that story.”

April S., Overcome

“Years before I was not working on my sobriety and letting Christ have that sobriety. Before I was in a recovery home trying to live off the streets but never working on my sobriety with Christ. Now I’m living in Christ with the heart of Christ, coming to see our letting God work in my life keep me off the streets and sober. I love the fact that there’s a pastor that will see the fact that people need sobriety and they need CR in their life thank you very much.”
