6th-12th Grade

Our Mission: Growing with God among friends. 

Our Vision: Everyone with a friend, everyone with a place.


This past week we talked about how to recognize when the Holy Spirit is compelling you to do something. 

Outline the opportunity - what might happen?


Pay attention to whether you care - does the information about the opportunity resonate in you somewhere?


Ask yourself "what problem could this opportunity help with?"


Ask yourself "how bad does this problem hurt?"


Consider the possible ways in which the opportunity in front of you might help change your perspective or alleviate some of the pain or frustration you might be feeling. 


Take the LEAP OF FAITH and trust God. 


Recognize that every time God presents you with an opportunity, it's something he's been preparing for you in ways that you will not be able to see until after you've taken the leap of faith. This too, is a leap of faith. 


Decide whether you're compelled, or not compelled. 


ACT accordingly. 

Supporting documentation can be found in Romans 8:26-30 and Jeremiah 29:10-14. 

This Week: 

The Mission is CLOSED FOR THANKSGIVING BREAK Nov 27th. We encourage you join us tonight at 7pm for a short service of thanksgiving in the Main Sanctuary. 


Parents: We have one spot remaining for an adult female leader. Contact Cori or Ben if you would like to attend as a leader. No training required!

Cori has the details from Rummage Sale Proceeds - if you have not paid for Ice Camp yet and your student has Rummage Sale credits, Cori will communicate with you about the exact balance that's due.

The Mission is Going to Costa Rica
Informational Meeting Dec 4 at 

Southridge has partnered with the Weesies family and Pura Vida Missions to begin forming a 2023 International Mission Team - and you can join! 

Dates: July 16-24

Location: San Ramon, Costa Rica (and surrounding villages)

Registration Deadline: January 7th, 2023 (THIS JANUARY)

Cost: $1,700/person 

We believe this trip will be a life-changing opportunity for all involved.


We'll be staying with Pura Vida at their mission house in the city of San Ramon and traveling to surrounding villages to run Vacation Bible School for the children there. Anyone with a desire to share the love of Jesus can join our team!


We'll be putting together several fundraising opportunities as we build our team, the first of which will be a Fall Rummage Sale.  

We encourage all students to take part in this fundraising event, but particularly if you're interested in joining the 2023 International Mission Team. This is a huge opportunity to help build relationships with your future teammates while generating some serious revenue to aid with the cost of the trip.
