FIRST-TIME GUESTS Welcome! Thank you for worshipping with us this morning at South Pointe Church. Ø We would love to get to know you! Please fill out the Connect card on the right edge of this bulletin, or online at wearearesouthpointe.com. Then, come to Starting Pointe in the Main Lobby after service for a free gift. We are excited to meet you! Ø If you have children, we are excited to have them join our Nursery (birth – age 3) or South Pointe Kids area (age 4 – 5th grade). Check-in for both areas is in the North Lobby. After check-in, SP Kids (age 4 – 5th grade) begin by worshipping with their parents before transitioning to the Kids area – look for the colorful dismissal slide. 12:2 Ministries (6th -12th grade) attend service with their parents. They meet Sunday mornings during Equipping Classes, and Wednesday evenings from 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm for worship, teaching and fellowship. They would love to welcome new students. Ø Have questions? Need help finding something? Please don’t hesitate to ask our greeters. They can be found at the auditorium entrances wearing South Pointe Church nametags.

With a goal of raising up Kingdom minded kids, we want G3 participants to: Grow in WISDOM: be encouraged and challenged as they explore what God has revealed about His plan for salvation through Jesus in the Bible. Learn how to study God’s Word on their own! Grow in FAVOR: learn what it looks like to follow Jesus with all we’ve got and to develop Godly, dependable, accountable relationships with their friends at church that, like them, are chasing after Jesus. Grow in STATURE: well… that one’s on Jesus :)
