Help us out!  

1) Please let your Life Group leader or the church office know if you or someone in your family is experiencing hospitalization or a death or birth within the family. Our ministers and deacons want to care and pray for you.

Salvation, spiritual transformation, or health concerns that you want to be listed on the weekly prayer sheet need to be submitted by Wednesday noon. This is not a confidential document, therefore, please ask permission from the person before sharing their need. Contact the church office anytime if you have an urgent need.
Thank you!

2) Our deacons desire to care for the needs of the body. They call and visit those who are unable to attend regularly or are alone. If you know of a South Gate member who would be blessed by this ministry of our deacons, please contact the church office to make us aware of the need.
Thank you!
