Youth Ministry

Youth Ministry

Our goals are simple:

We want to GROW-We want to grow as a church, we want to grow closer together, and we want to grow closer to God.

We want to serve our community, our church, and our Lord.

We want to share our time, our love, our faith, and the gospel. We want the world to know what God has done for us.

We want to build a faith that lasts not just in High school but throughout College and Adult life. We want to build faithful Christians that will propel the church into great things.

Some of our events:

At 9:00 AM every Sunday morning, you can find us in the Youth Room talking about the Bible. We gear up for the week and discuss how we can be lights in our schools and communities.

At 6:30 PM every Wednesday, we will be in the Youth Room catching up with each other on how our weeks have been and getting a little boost to get us through the rest of the week! This summer, starting on June 7th and going through August 30th, we will meet on Tuesdays at 6:30 PM for our summer series.

Challenge Youth Conference: This is a weekend event in Pigeon Forge, TN, dedicated to challenging our youth to do great things.

Celebration: This is a weekend retreat that we attend every fall. We celebrate all weekend by worshipping God and learning how to serve Him better.

Work Camp: We spend a couple of days doing service projects in our community.

Vacation Bible School: Fun week for the entire church! Teens in the youth group are encouraged to help out this week by volunteering to help our group leaders.

Big Reedy Christian Camp: A week at camp staffed by members of Southside for our youth and the youth of surrounding areas. Camp is a time to disconnect from the world and re-connect with God, His creation, and in an environment that encourages us to get to know Him better. It’s an awesome event for anyone from second grade and up!
