What We Do


Our Ministries

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.

SouthGate's Connect Groups

Our Connect Group Ministry is the second step in our church's overall discipleship process.

Just as the name implies, our purpose is to help everyone connect with one another in relationships that move us towards a place of spiritual maturity. We do this through Bible-based studies, prayer, encouragement, and opportunities to discover and use the spiritual gifts that God has placed in our lives to serve others.

Our goal is to have all people from every age group who regularly attend SouthGate Church to participate in our Connect Group Ministry and to invite friends, neighbors, co-workers, and family members to experience the Connect Groups as well.

The Process

91st Psalm Christian School

The 91st Psalm Christian School was established in 1984 as a Pre-Kindergarten through 12th grade school and has been a member of the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI) since 1996. As a ministry of SouthGate Church, it is a nondenominational, Bible-based, multi-cultural Christian school.

We have quality, caring, and committed faculty members. Our average faculty/staff member has been here for 10 years.

We strive to be a long-term asset to this community.
