Sunday School (for pre-K through grade 4)

The Old South Sunday School program is active during the school year, with classes meeting about two Sundays per month, during worship. Please consult the Pastor for the current schedule.

Bible Study

Old South offers regular opportunities for Bible Study.  These studies are led by the Pastor or lay leaders.

The Bible Bunch is an area study which meets on Wednesdays from Noon until 1:00 from October through May.  The group usually meets at Old South, in the Parish House, and involves individuals from several area churches.

The Occasional Film Group/The Occasional Book Group

These groups meet on, well, an occasional basis.

Mission and Outreach

We offer mission and outreach in a  variety of ways:

1.  Bread of Life Dinner Delivery.  From October through June, we deliver the evening meal to the Bread of Life Shelter on the first Wednesday of the month.

2.  Monthly Hallowell Food Bank offering.  We collect food for the Hallowell Food Bank on the first Sunday of the month.

3.  Outreach Fund.  Through our Outreach Fund, we offer donations to a variety of projects, from local projects like Pilgrim Lodge, the Hallowell Food Bank, and Family Violence Project, to worldwide projects, like disaster relief.

4.  Regular offerings.  We participate in United Church of Christ offerings, as well as ecumenical offerings– Neighbors in Need; Christmas Fund; One Great Hour of Sharing; etc.
