"PACK YOUR BAGS!" (Part 5)
When you travel, it's important to pack for any eventualities you might encounter along the the way. The Bible says that as believers, we are travelers on a journey to a better, heavenly country and a city prepared just for us (Heb. 11:13-17). Are you adequately equipped to deal with life's twists and turns? This Sunday Pastor Andrew will be sharing part 5 of his current series on preparing your checklist for the trip of your life!
IF YOU CAN'T BE HERE... JOIN US ONLINE THIS SUNDAY MORNING @ 10:30!

A Word Of Caution
We are super happy to be back worshipping together. However, this comes with a certain amount of responsibility towards others.
There are some amongst us who are more susceptible to contracting the Covid19 Virus than others. Because of this we ask you to please use caution when greeting or interacting with others. For the time being it might be best to "ask before you hug" as a courtesy to others and their comfort. Remember... It's all about considering others before ourselves.
Thanks for your consideration on this matter!

Hey SouthGate Family - We need your help!
We have implemented Outreach Social, which automatically posts beautiful, inspirational graphics on our Facebook page every day (https://www.facebook.com/ SouthGateAZChurch/).
Some are Bible verses, inspirational sayings and quotes, as well as conversation starters. All we need you to do is like, comment and share them with your friends. That's it - easy peasy!
Keep in mind that "Sharing" is the outreach mechanism for our Facebook page - when you share something from our page it goes out to all of your Facebook friends and points those people to our page - and in essence to our church. When you like our page it's basically like telling people already on our page that you like a post. Both are important to the way Facebooks' algorithm rates our page but sharing is the tool that exposes outside people to our church which is the ultimate goal.
So... here are your next steps:
Follow us on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/ SouthGateAZChurch/)
Like and comment on our daily graphics to build our engagement.
When you see posts you like, share them with your friends.
Oh, and one more thing, if you take pictures at church events, please post them on the church's Facebook page. This will help show people how great our church family is!
Thanks for your help!!!
