We want your visit to Southmont to be a wonderful experience. Please look through this compilation of common questions for those visiting Southmont.
What should I wear?
Whatever you like. You will see very broad range of attire. Many of our people prefer a casual dress. We understand God is much more concerned with a person’s heart than their clothes. Please dress modestly and have a reverence for where we are and who we are among.
When are the services?
The worship service begins at 10:45 A.M. and features a blend of contemporary and traditional music. The Sunday School time begins at 9:15 A.M. and offers Bible study groups for all ages. We provide loving childcare for your entire morning at Southmont. Join us on the first Saturday of each month at 6 P.M. for an evening church service featuring contemporary style worship and a message from our pastor.
When should I arrive?
We recommend arriving 10 minutes before the service or Sunday School begins if you are not bringing children with you. You might want to arrive 15 – 20 minutes early if you are bringing children and head to the Children’s Building first if you need to get small children situated with childcare. Be sure to look for our Guest Parking, located close to the front of the building. When you arrive, please come by the Welcome Center to get information about Southmont and a cup of coffee and refreshments.
Where do I go when I get there?
As you enter the building look for signs to the Welcome Center. It is located across from the Worship Center and exists to welcome you to Southmont and help you understand how to get where you want to go. Look for our greeters located at each door. They are available every Sunday morning to assist you and to find answers to your questions.
If you have children, you may go directly to the Children’s Building where our Children’s ministry calls home. You will know that this two-story building is for children from the moment that you walk in. From the brightly colored walls to the media-centric “Big Room”, everything here is geared towards kids. Our Youth department meets in the Southmont Activity Center, located towards the back of the campus.
How do I get there?
Southmont is located in the fast-growing Southern part of Denton, Texas at the corner of Teasley Lane and Pennsylvania Drive next door to Sam Houston Elementary School. The church is just across IH35E from the Golden Triangle Mall, and adjacent to the Southridge neighborhood.
