Health & Wellness
Our Jurisdiction is blessed to have its own "Health & Wellness Coach," to motivate and offer education on the epidemic rise of diseases such as diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease and obesity.
It is my pleasure to appoint Elder Readus Smith as the Commissioner of Health Education for the Florida Central Second Ecclesiastical Jurisdiction.
His Healthy Living Initiatives offers special programs for our seniors and will help everyone get on track to a new healthier lifestyle.
We look forward to the healthy educational experience and the benefits of these programs in the upcoming new year.
Sunday School classes are available to pre-school aged children through high school seniors as well as adult members. Sunday School begins at 9:30 am every Sunday morning. The Church Of God In Christ curriculum provides structure and continuity in the Christian education and faith journeys of all who participate. Our curriculum is centered on our relationship with God and His people. All lessons emphasize God's grace, love, and forgiveness as free gifts to mankind and our loving responses to those great gifts. The ultimate focus is loving God, loving others as God loves us, and being good stewards of God's great creation.
Classes are taught by well-trained, capable and committed members of our church including ministers, elders, missionaries, deacons and lay members.
The Southside Youth Department consists of youth between the ages of 12 through 18.

Southside Men's Fellowship
The Men's Fellowship Ministry of Southside COGIC provides opportunities for spiritual growth and development of Godly character. A Godly man is a servant, not a slavemaster. Being a spiritual leader does not mean dominating your family. It means serving your family, and being a Godly example to your wife and children. Bishop Edward Robinson, Sr. understands and teaches the value of being a living example of a Godly man and a provider. He passes these values to the Southside men to care for their families God has entrusted into their care.
