Aspire Women's Conference 2020

SouthGate ladies, don't miss out on this year's Aspire Women's Conference on Friday Nov. 13th from 7-10 p.m.! This years speaker will be Debbie Alsdorf. Mia Koehne will be leading worship and Anita Renfroe will be providing some comic relief.

Should be a great night of fun, fellowship and growing together in Christ and after the year we've just been through (it's not over yet), we could all use a wheel alignment about right now. The cost is $20.00.

Rio Vista Thanksgiving Outreach

We've been given a great opportunity to reach out to the South Phoenix area this Thanksgiving. We need 20-50 volunteers to help bag & distribute food to needy people within our own community on Sat., Nov 21st. If we reply soon enough (as in - use the button below to sign up today) our church can take responsibility for the entire 8:30-10:30 shift. This is a great chance to show the love of Jesus in a very tangible way to those who are less fortunate in our own back yard.


On a related note, beginning Sunday October 25th we will be collecting food items to help stock Rio Vista's pantry for this big event. We will have some big plastic barrels in the church lobby that you can put your donations in. We'll be sending out an email this week with a list of needed food items.


Then on Sunday November 15th we will be collecting frozen turkeys in the parking lot prior to both services to distribute at the outreach.


So - as you can see - there are a lot of ways that you can get involved in this important ministry event. We're hoping everyone at Southgate will do something to make this years outreach a big success - LET'S DO THIS SOUTHGATE!!!

Weakened marijuana DUI laws?

A monopoly that rewards marijuana-insiders?

“Protected” laws AZ lawmakers can’t fix or update?

And please be sure to vote this election - the stakes couldn't be higher. The only thing it takes for evil to triumph is for good people to do nothing!

A Word Of Caution

We are super happy to be back worshipping together. However, this comes with a certain amount of responsibility towards others. 

There are some amongst us who are more susceptible to contracting the Covid19 Virus than others. Because of this we ask you to please use caution when greeting or interacting with others. For the time being it might be best to "ask before you hug" as a courtesy to others and their comfort.  Remember... It's all about considering others before ourselves. 

Thanks for your consideration on this matter!

Hey SouthGate Family - We need your help!

We have implemented Outreach Social, which automatically posts beautiful, inspirational graphics on our Facebook page every day ( SouthGateAZChurch/). 

Some are Bible verses, inspirational sayings and quotes, as well as conversation starters. All we need you to do is like, comment and share them with your friends. That's it - easy peasy!


Keep in mind that "Sharing" is the outreach mechanism for our Facebook page - when you share something from our page it goes out to all of your Facebook friends and points those people to our page - and in essence to our church. When you like our page it's basically like telling people already on our page that you like a post. Both are important to the way Facebooks' algorithm rates our page but sharing is the tool that exposes outside people to our church which is the ultimate goal.


So... here are your next steps:

Follow us on Facebook ( SouthGateAZChurch/)

Like and comment on our daily graphics to build our engagement.

When you see posts you like, share them with your friends.

Oh, and one more thing, if you take pictures at church events, please post them on the church's Facebook page. This will help show people how great our church family is!

Thanks for your help!!!
