Good Tuesday Morning Mission families!

It has been such a great week for all of us! We got to witness several of our kids make profession of their Faith! It’s so beautiful when they choose to make their relationship with God a personal thing! We are excited to watch these kids not only grow in their faith, but become the leaders they are designed to be!
 

This week we talked about spiritual gifts and how when we are using the gifts given by the Spirit, we are energised and fulfilled. We also took a spiritual gifts assessment and will go over the results on May 19th. We will NOT be meeting this week, May 12, because of Mother’s Day! Enjoy your family time!

Week of 4/28/24 

Hello Mission families!


This week we talked about dating relationships. We learned that the #1 spot in our hearts should always be Jesus, that we should not be unequally yoked, and to respect our parents guidance for our lives.  This week we are having another game night. We had many laughs at our last one and I am looking forward to more laughs this time.
 

Profession of faith is May 5th and I’m hoping many of you can make it to support our students.
 

Sign ups are going on for our summer serve mission camp. We will all be staying at the mission house during the week.
Here is what the days may look like:
Wednesday 9:00 check in
                      10-12 serve at Southridge
                       12 lunch at the mission house
                       1-4 pack up and head to afternoon service project
                       4:30 clean up
                       5:30-8 pool party and dinner at the Loeks
                       9:00 worship
                       10:30 lights out.
Thursday and Friday will be very similar days.

 

On Saturday we plan to do a fun activity and end up back at the mission house for a family potluck/picnic.
 

Please let Elizabeth or Stacey know if you are able to help at all during the week.
 

We hope everyone has a great week and we’ll see everyone back on Sunday. Please let us know if you have any questions!

 

Blessings!

Week of 4/21/24 

Good morning Mission families! 


It was a great week to be together again!  We were able to enjoy the weather with a competitive game of kick ball, an amazing dinner of Mac & cheese and pulled pork sandwiches, and several students stepped up to lead us in worship! We are so proud of them for being great leaders. We talked about the friend groups that we have and how important it is to pick the right friends! A saying to remember is “ It’s impossible to live the right life when you have the wrong friends”.


This week we will be talking about dating relationships and what is the purpose of dating.


Sign ups started this week for our summer Mission serve! We are so excited for this new experience that we will have together June 12-15. We are also looking for parent volunteers for all or part of the time. Please let us know if you would be willing to help out.


We hope you will all join us on May 5th as we celebrate our students who are making profession of faith at our 10:00 service.

Have an amazing week!

Welcome Back! 


It’s been a long time since we’ve all been together and we are looking forward to some great times together for the next 2 1/2 months. Our last regular meeting will be on June 2nd, but we have several things planned for this summer.
 

This week we are going to start a 2 week talk about “Relationships”. We are so glad that so many of you have close relationships with each other in our group. 
 

Also, this Sunday we will start sign ups for our summer Mission Serve, taking place June 12-15. The cost will be $100. As always, if this is a financial burden, please talk to Elizabeth or Stacey. We don’t ever want finances to interfere with you participating! Also, many students still have funds available in their fundraising accounts. Contact us if you need to know what is available. Sign ups will continue through May 12.
Several of the students have been participating in the Profession of Faith program. It has been going great and  we all have learned a lot about our faith. On May 5th, these student will be acknowledged during on Sunday morning service. The worship team will be made up of students in our group. It would be wonderful for everyone to be at this service to support and congratulate these students.

 

Have a great week and we look forward to seeing you all on Sunday!

Good Morning Mission Families!

We had a great night on Sunday learning a little more about Holy Week and what we are celebrating. We’ve attached the video that we watched in case anyone wants to watch it. It’s a great overview of Holy Week and what Jesus went through for us!


If you don’t have a church to go to, we invite you to celebrate with us at Southridge. We have a Maunday Thursday service at 7:00 on Thursday and Easter Celebration at 10:00 on Sunday. We’d love to see you there!


We will NOT be meeting on Sunday nights, March 31st and April 7th. Hoping you all have a great break! For those of you on break this week, we missed you on Sunday and hope you are enjoying your time away.


We will be having a game day on Wednesday April 3rd from 12-3. We will use the first 30 minutes or so helping to pick up sticks around the Mission house and church. Would love to see as many of you as possible!


Wishing you all a wonderful Easter!

Good Morning Mission Families!


What a great night we had this week! We had the privilege of having the Worship Arts team to lead us in worship again. It was amazing! It’s been so good developing relationships with many of the members. They fit right in with our group and participate in all the activities. We are already looking forward to having them back in the fall. 
 

We also talked about the “spark notes” that God gives us of the entire Old Testament. Matthew 22: 36-40; Jesus tells everyone that the two main ideas of the entire Old Testament were these: Love God and Love People. That is what we are supposed to do with our lives. We were challenged to think of one person that we could serve this week. We were also excited to be able to introduce “The Mission Summer Service Camp”! It will be a great time to be able to serve locally as a team! More details will follow soon!

 

Saturday March 23 from 1-3 Lincoln Buttery is having a pop up shop at Mattawan Candy Company with all of the things he makes. Please come out and show your support!

This coming Sunday we are going to talk about Holy Week. We invite everyone to come to Southridge, if you don’t have another place to worship and celebrate our risen Savior!

 

Blessings to you all!

Good Morning Mission Families!


We had such a great time eating pizza, playing games, and laughing this week! It was so fun to see that even playing simple musical chairs (requested by the teens) that we could laugh so hard! 
 

This week we are fortunate to have the Worship Arts team back with us leading us in worship. It’s great to see the relationships that have developed with them since they started coming last fall.
 

As a reminder, we will not be meeting on March 31st and April 7th. We hope you enjoy this time off and spend extra time with your families celebrating our risen Savior! 
 

Here are just a few clips of some of the fun from Sunday! 
 

We hope you all have a great week and look forward to seeing everyone on Sunday!
 

Blessings!

Good Morning Mission Families!

 

We had a great night Sunday playing games, great food, and learning about “Kindness”. We learned about that it’s not just about random acts of kindness, but kindness as a lifestyle. We learned that it involves 3 parts, Our words, our actions, and our attitudes. We were all challenged to live out a lifestyle of kindness so that others would see Jesus living through us.

This week we will not have regular programming, but a night of games, food, and conversations. We look forward to another great night together!

Please look at our needs lists and volunteer opportunities. We appreciate your investment in the students!

 

Have a great week!

Hello Mission Families!

This past Sunday we talked about Salvation and the steps we need to take individually to be assured of our eternity in heaven.  We watched a video of a train master sacrificing his own son to save the many passengers on the train. We compared this to the sacrifice God made by sending His son as a sacrifice for all of us.
 

This week we will be talking about “Kindness and Compassion". We hope to see everyone again this week.
 

On the menu this week is Chicken Alfredo!  YUM!
 

Have a great week!
