    repair homes in the Chesterfield County area that week (June 17 - June 23). We will be providing food for lunches for the Impact Team members as well as driving to different sites to deliver the food and support the team. Contact Heather if you are interested in
    helping with this project.

    and join in the fun.

  • WE'VE MOVED !!

    Southampton Baptist Church will begin 2018 in a new home! We will be meeting in the chapel at Woodland Heights Baptist Church every Sunday at 11:00 a.m. beginning in January. We are excited for this new journey and think you would feel right at home here, too!

  • SUNDAY SCHOOL with Woodland Heights Baptist Church

    Woodland Heights has invited us to attend their Sunday School classes.
    Starting on January 7th, they are beginning a new study...perfect timing.
    "The Story" is a 31 week story of the Bible in chronological order. The curriculum begins with a 10 minute video each week that introduces the scripture and gives background and commentary. Then, the group breaks off into individual classes for further study/discussion. There are books available for $3.25.

    Sunday School will start at 9:30 a.m. in the Chapel.

  • Sit and S.O.W

    Come "Sit and S.O.W." with us. The craft projects vary just as the personalities vary, but there is sure consistency in attendance, relaxation, sharing, and great fellowship. A.C. Moore makes room for us to gather among the ribbons and flowers. Customers smile or inquire or visit with us. Each Tuesday at 11 a.m., we are there with our crochet hooks, knitting needles, or embroidery floss. Watching the process of a few stitches turn into a wearable or usable object is inspiring and amazing: creation right before our eyes. The ministry in fellowship, the ministry in producing needed items for others, the ministry of being available to others, and the ministry in using our gifts, …..all are ministries from the heart.

    Come "Sit and S.O.W." with us.  For more information please contact the office at (804) 272-5942.

  • Southampton's Communion is now GLUTEN FREE!

    Southampton Baptist is aware of the many dietary concerns of our congregation. Our communion bread is now GLUTEN FREE!
