Who are we here at South Decatur Church?
We are so delighted that you have chosen to stop and check out our website! Here at SDC we are a Modern Day Pentecostal community. Now, what does that mean? Well for starters we believe that worship should be exciting, uplifting, encouraging, and even challenging. The church should be a place of joy, peace, power, and life. The church should be full should be full of people that love God, love one another, and love the community where they serve. The church should for all people no matter their race, gender, age or social status. The church should be a place where people are passionate about worshipping God. The church should be a place where every person can grow in their faith. With this in mind, the SDC has a vision statement that encompasses this.
CONNECT, GROW, AND MULTIPLY
CONNECT, is all about connecting people to God and to one another. Every week we do out best to help create an atmosphere of fellowship here at the church. We want people to build relationships and make friends with others in the church. We believe that life is done better within a community and we do all that we can to help foster these relationships. We also believe in Connecting people with God. We work hard to create a worship experience each week that will bring people into the presence of the Lord so that they can experience Him in a great way.
GROW, is all about growing in your faith. At SDC we want to help you learn about God and learn how to live a more productive and purposeful life. Through training, small groups, classes and the preaching of sound Biblical principles we know that you will grow and mature in your faith. Discipleship is a major part of everything that we do here at SDC.
MULTIPLY is all about growing the kingdom of God. At SDC we want to grow and we want the kingdom to grow and we believe that Jesus has called us to expand the kingdom of God. We encourage every person in the church to invite others to come and see what God is doing. We work hard to make sure every guest feels welcome and had a great experience.
Here at SDC we strive to be that kind of church every day. We want every person to feel welcome when they come through the doors of the church. We have something for all age groups and we are all ways looking on how we can improve the ministries of the church. Our worship team is as good as you will find anywhere and they work hard to create an environment that will allow you to join in and be a part of the worship experience. If you just want to sit back and worship the Lord in your own way or if you want to sing along with the words on the board, it is all good to us. Our goal is just to give you a place where you can worship freely. We also work to make sure that we have something for all ages. Our kid's ministries happen during every worship service. Kid's Church happens both on Sunday Morning and Sunday Night and all of our workers have had background checks and every child is checked in to ensure security. Royal Rangers Boys Program and Missionettes Girls Club happen every Wednesday night along with Revolution Youth.
We also do all that we can to ensure that every adult has the ability to grow in their faith. Our Sunday Night Tribal Groups are great for connecting with other believers, growing in your faith, and helping build the kingdom of God. These are small groups that meeting in homes throughout the Decatur area. They are an excellent way to get to know the SDC family.
We also have Life Groups on Sunday morning and Wednesday night. These groups are small groups that meet to discuss different topics and issues that come up in life. There are groups that center around all kinds of topics and we know you will find one that will allow you to grow in your faith. We also have Care Groups that meet monthly for times of fellowship and fun. These are some great groups and you can find out all about them and the Life Groups under the discipleship button at the top of the page.
There are so many things that are happening at SDC and we would love for you to come and join us during one of our weekly services and see for yourself what is going on. We believe that God has called us to "Develop fully devoted followers of Christ" and we are working hard to make sure that happens.
