Our congregation is affiliated with More Light Presbyterians, an organization that works for the full inclusion of LGBTQIA+ people.  All sexual orientations, gender identifications, and expressions are welcome.

No matter age, race, sexual orientation or identity, ability, or economic circumstance, join us at Southminster Presbyterian Church as we serve God, our community, and the world.  All are welcome!

We are a Matthew 25 Congregation!

We have joined in a national initiative of the PC(USA) to live out the call in the Gospel of Matthew to do unto the least of these.

We, along with others in our Presbytery and our denomination, seek to be a vital congregation, to eradicate systemic poverty, and to dismantle systemic racism.

We are grateful for all those who have mailed in checks or who have given online, your generosity has been a sign of the love of this community. We know many of you are accustomed to giving during the offertory in worship. While we are practicing social distancing, please give online through our app or mail your check to the Church.
