Community

"Encourage one another daily, as long as it is called today." - Hebrews 3:13

Loving One Another • Here at South Haven, we recognize that loving one another is best done in community.

We encourage everyone to be involved in some kind of small group. Let us know if you would like more information about any of the events or ministries below.

What do folks love about South Haven? Lots of things!

What I love about South Haven is that we continue to have a very intimate ‘family’ like community among our church family! People truly care about one another and are actively helping one another.

Holly G.

I LOVE that the church is dedicated to helping people, whether it be mission trips, food pantry, Christmas store, dresses for girls in Haiti, Forrest Avenue or even the prayer lists; everyone pitches in to help!

Sheila J.

I love our Sunday school class, and I love being in the Men’s Gospel Quartet.

South Haven is a warm and friendly church. We speak the Truth with conviction but not condemnation. I am a widower and started coming to South Haven regularly after my wife passed away. I received so much love and support from many people. They are like another family. The Bible study and music worship are fantastic. I enjoy serving at South Haven and am looking forward to leading some people to get involved in some initiatives outside the walls of our church.
