At Southside our goal is to help your student to grow in Christ. We desire to equip them to stand strong in their faith and be able to defend it. We want them to have a genuine faith that is their own, not because they were raised in church but because they truly know the Creator of the Universe.
We challenge students as well and give you tools to stand strong each and every day while building community with other students. We do this through weekly small groups, Wednesday worship, as well as events throughout the year including: Student Ministry weekend, other retreats, Summer Camp, mission trips, street ministry outreach, lake days, and many more.
Our small groups meet on Sunday mornings at 9:30. We have several options for you to grow as a disciple. Our goal is for you as a Christian is to be a disciple who makes disciples. Our call is to take the word of God to the world and only by becoming a mature believer in Christ can this happen.
1. Know and serve one another persistently. (1 Thessalonians 2:7–8; Hebrews 3:12–13)
2. Depend on the Lord prayerfully. (Philippians 4:6–7; Hebrews 4:14–16)
3. Meet God through his word faithfully and expectantly. (Psalm 19:7–11; 2 Peter 1:3–4)
4. Pursue disciples for Jesus boldly and globally. (Matthew 28:19–20; Acts 1:8)
5. Rest in the gospel confidently and humbly. (Romans 8:1, 32, 37–39; 1 Corinthians 15:1–4)
6. Work out our salvation soberly and joyfully. (Philippians 2:12–13; Galatians 5:1, 13, 25)
At Southside we want to partner with parents to guide kids toward a HEART for God.
Specifically, we believe that God has called us, in partnership with parents, to help our children:
KNOW the Word of God deeply and the Lord Jesus personally
GROW to be like Jesus together and
GO serve Him in their homes, church, school and community.
