Kids Ministry

At Southgate, we believe our families are an essential building block to the spiritual growth of our children. Our focus and goal is to equip parents and families in their role of leading their children to Christ and to provide a safe and fun space for the seeds of God’s word to be planted in our children’s hearts. We want our children to know God, have a relationship with Jesus, and have a desire to share Christ with others. Our goal is to train children in the Truth so that they can stand as adults, thoroughly equipped for Christ’s service with a love for Jesus and His Word. 

"If you do not stand firm in your faith, you will not stand at all" Isaiah 7:9b

Bible classes

We offer a variety of bible classes for all ages. Our classes use many methods to teach the Bible to our children using storytelling, crafts, games, and activities. Our focus with every lesson is to point our kids to Christ and to understand God more.

junior worship

We offer a special worship time for children, ages 3 - 7, during our worship service. We use this time to teach our children the fundamentals of worship. Our worship time includes singing, prayer time, and a bible lesson. Kids will start off in the auditorium with their parents for worship and be dismissed to junior worship at the designated time. Kids are picked up in the junior worship room following service. 


NURSERY: We also provide a volunteer staffed nursery for your littles between the age of 18 months - 3 years old. We dismiss these kids at the same time as our junior worship kids. We also have an infant nursery available where our service is live streamed in the event your little one needs a brief or extended break.

events & activities

We host several events throughout the year which include Vacation Bible School, an annual Easter event, and an annual fall event such as Trunk or Treat. We also have various opportunities for our kids to participate in service. Our kids have participated in Walk for Water, making cards for widows & shut ins, Christmas caroling, and making blessing bags for The Vertical 196. At Southgate, we are always seeking new ways to include Southgate Kids in our ministries.
