Cell groups, family groups, disciple groups, specialty groups, care groups ... there are many names for the small group ministries prevalent in churches today. At SouthGate Church, we choose to use the term "Connect Groups."
Any growing church faces the possibility of not being able to effectively serve those who meet for Sunday morning and Connect Group gatherings. As SouthGate Church grows, it is committed to the growing Connect Group emphasis so that everyone has the opportunity to grow in Christ through fellowship, serving, and using personal giftings.
SouthGate Church is committed to the welfare of our membership and realizes that the Connect Group initiative is critical in light of its ongoing growth. Everyone must be connected, and there is no better way than meeting in a Connect Group.
Children's Ministries are also vitally important in SouthGate's ministry emphasis, including our 91st Psalm Christian School, Pre K-12th Grade. Children's programs offered at SouthGate are designed to significantly minister to the children of our community.
Our child-friendly Connect Groups have a separate ministry for children. The children’s portion of these groups are lead by youth volunteers. This provides youth an opportunity to learn the value of serving the needs of others.
We also have a Youth (7th-12th grade) Connect Group that meets Wednesday nights from 6:30-8:30 p.m. and a College Age Connect Group (through age 25) that meets Saturday nights from 4-6 p.m. Read more about our Connet Groups below.
