What is hope? Last week we learned that Biblical hope is a powerful positive expectation of the future. Join us this Sunday as we dive deeper into part 2 of Pastor Andrew's series; "Hope's Expectations".

As always, we appreciate the generosity of this church family, and thank you for always stepping up to help out with all the little things that make our church events so special.

If you would like to help out the amazing hospitality team by donating creamer and/or OJ once a month, you'd sure be a blessing to our thirsty church family on Sunday morning. Let the church office know if this is something you would like to help out with, and what weekend you'd like to donate.

Connect Groups are BACK and we couldn't be more excited! In the words of Pastor Andrew; "It’s so much more than just meeting up over coffee, it’s an opportunity for people to be a part of a community, to find solid friendships, a support system, and people to do life with! God Doesn't want anyone to have to walk through life alone. This is why the Church was never intended to be an event to attend, but a family to belong to."


Connect Groups are small groups that meet together weekly in the homes of church members. We share meals, we fellowship, share life's highs and lows, and of course, most importantly, we have time to connect with God, diving deeper into who He is, and what He wants us to know about Him. If this has been your church family for a while now, there is no better time to get to know some of the newer members here and of course reconnect with the ones you haven't seen in a while. If you're new here, then this is DEFTINTELY a time you don't want to miss out on. Real life change happens in these small groups; deep rooted friendships flourish, honesty and rawness are the core, and God always has something He is waiting to reveal to you in these studies. This year we have a wide variety of studies and time slots, giving an opportunity to have something for everyone! We can't wait to "connect" with you at this fall's Connect Groups at SouthGate. You can use the link below to check out this years groups and sign yourself up for the one that works for you.

There will be a Children's Church Safety Meeting this Sunday, September 25th after second service in the youth building. We encourage anyone and everyone who serves in the Children's Ministry (child check in, nursery & children's church) to attend this important meeting. Lunch and childcare will be provided.

RSVP Here.

With Connect Groups starting back up & all the new faces we've had joining our family, we thought this would be a great time to have a baptism event. We already have a few people ready to take the “plunge” themselves and a kind host who has offered up her pool. This event will take place on Sunday, October 9th. If you feel that tug on your heart, or have questions about what baptism is or is not exactly, contact the Church office and we would be happy to answer those questions and get you set up to make that declaration the bible calls us to do. Attached below is a link to sign up.

It's one of our favorite events of the year, the all church family campout!! We hope for a big turn out this year, because we have big plans for this year! The campout will be October 12th -16th at the Houston Mesa Campground in Payson, AZ. Though attending the entire event is the goal, we understand some of us may only be able to come for a night or two, and that's okay, just come when you can. Tents, trailers, and RV's are welcome, but you should know there are no hook ups at this group site. We will be dry camping unless you want to bring your generator (off by 10pm nightly).

We have some fun things planned this year like; Corn Hole tournaments, Ladder Ball, Game Night, a Scavenger Hunt for the kids and a Poker Tournament. In addition to the games and activities we will have an area set up if you would like a time of morning prayer and reflection with some praise and worship. We will also have faith and fellowship around the fire each night with time for testimonies, mini bible studies and, of course... what would a campfire be without a song by it?! If activities aren't your thing, and you just need some rest and relaxation, we are here for that too! Read a book, take a nap or go for a hike, and join in the other activities when you want, if you want. 

Click the link below to sign up ASAP. The cost is $70 per family and spots are first come first serve.
