Worship Services

Worship is no benign activity. It is intended to radicalize us, change and form us into followers of Jesus. We believe that worship - even via live stream! - can and should be thrilling, profoundly engaging, even riveting — for it is given to us to handle the mysteries of life and death, time and eternity, spirit and flesh, good and evil. Will you join us? Do you dare?

Watch a Live Streamed Service

"The caliber and depth the services, both in-person and online, is impressive, and we're delighted to find our kids actively engaged with the service - especially the weekly Children’s Message. We're thankful that Old South has compelling options for all."

Thursdays at 6:00 p.m.

It’s Thursday evening and it’s already been a long week. Relax and recenter with soulful jazz music by the Willie Sordillo Ensemble. Music and speaking provides opportunity for reflection and meditation. 

 

Jazz Worship is often the high point of our week. Every Thursday, we hear classic jazz, freedom songs, and blues beautifully performed in arrangements that reveal their sacred core. The blend of music, poetry, and prayer becomes our digital hymnal, relaxing, inspiring, and moving us forward – and closer to God."

First Worship is full of joy and laughter. Not so big you’ll get lost, not so small you’ll stand out. We adore the sounds of children and they are always welcome. Communion bread is sweet and plentiful, our songs are beautiful and easy to sing. We’re fun, you would like us.

First Worship reminds us every week that there is a place at God's table for everyone, especially our children. The sermons are consistently challenging and insightful, the music uplifting, and the people always gracious and welcoming.”
