Demonstrating God’s love for people in their time of need by offering hope, assistance, and encouragement.

While we hope to be able to minister to as many as possible, Southpoint members and their immediate family are given preference based upon availability of leaders, volunteers and resources.  We seasonally and occasionally provide funds and collection drives to meet congregational and community needs. If you’re in need, talk to a leader or contact the church office. 

Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to
all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers.
Galatians 6:10 ESV

Need Prayer or Someone to Talk to?

You can go to the front of the auditorium after any worship service, and a leader will be there to pray with you. Or you can share a prayer request on your Connection Card any weekend, or send a request by email to any time – these will be shared with our prayer team. (Want to join the Prayer Corps to pray for those requests? Click here!)

Pastoral Care and Counseling

Our Elders and Ministry Staff are available for prayer and counseling on a limited basis. We don’t have professional counselors on staff, but we can provide a list of professional Christian counselors in the Downriver area that can help you.

Hospital Visits

If you’d like us to visit you while you’re in the hospital, call the office. Be sure to give your name, hospital name, and admission date.


If you’d like information regarding funerals, contact the office.


Because staff and facility availability is limited, one of the engaged must be a Southpoint member. Mandatory pre-marital counseling takes three months to complete. For more information, contact the office.

Support Groups

We have several different groups that meet on a recurring basis, where you can find support as you go through life’s challenges. Anyone from the community is welcome, any time.
Living in the Light – A Christ-centered recovery group dealing with all addictions, using the Celebrate Recovery® material. Meets every Thursday at 6:30pm, at the Trenton campus. For more info, contact the leader: Mary Manners (734-344-1738)
GriefShare – A weekly seminar and support group designed to help you rebuild your life after losing a loved one. We know it hurts, and we want to help. Contact a leader at or get more info on any current session by clicking here.
DivorceCare – A weekly seminar and support group for those facing separation or divorce. We’ll help you work through the pain, stress, and challenges, and move toward rebuilding your life. Contact a leader at or get more info on any current session by clicking here.

Congregational Care

Provides items for Southpointers in need, such as holiday meals and gifts, back-to-school items, and widow/widower meals.

Financial Help

We have a number of ministries in place that provide material and financial help, each with their own pre-requisites. Contact a leader or the office if you are in need, and we’ll help you get connected to the right resources. We also have the Open Arms Food Pantry – details on that below!

We also maintain this website filled with helpful links, videos, and resources. God is our only real source of help, hope, healing and happiness! Check it out and let others know about it.
