Southern Hills Kids
Southern Hills is a great place for kids. In addition to our youth ministry (for those in 6th – 12th grades) we also have a really dynamic ministry to preschool and elementary ages. We call it “Southern Hills Kids.”
What’s the purpose of Southern Hills Kids? The mission of Southern Hills Kids is to teach children that God is love, the Bible is true and helpful, and the church is a happy place.

What are the goals of this ministry?

1. To value children as individuals, just as God loves us all uniquely
2. To teach age-appropriate biblical lessons with love, grace, and imagination
3. To create an atmosphere of “Belonging” where friendships naturally develop
4. To promote personal relationships with Jesus that will last for a lifetime What would my children do at Southern Hills? •Age-appropriate Bible Classes:

Sundays at 9:30 a.m. and Wednesdays at 6:00 p.m.

•Nursery: for our youngest children, a clean, friendly nursery is provided on Sundays.

 

How can my children get plugged in? We would love for your children to be involved. The best place to jump in would probably be one of our Bible classes, either at 9:30 a.m. on Sundays or 6:00 p.m. on Wednesdays. This would allow your children to meet their peers in a smaller group setting.

Another option would be to call the church office (318.686.2190) or send an email (natalie@sohills.org) and ask to be added to our mailing list.

Southern Hills Youth

Our desire is to be a family, and a big part of that is ministering to our students as they navigate the first stages of the journey of faith.

Missions: Our Commitment To God’s Kingdom

We believe God is at work in Shreveport, LA, but we also know He is at work around the globe. The church does not exist to further its own mission, but to be part of God’s. That means focusing attention and resources locally and abroad.

History:

From the beginning, Southern Hills has worked to further the Kingdom of God by supporting foreign missions. The longest-supported work was in Buenos Aires, Argentina (1972-2002). Two missions couples, Jake and Marilyn Vincent and later Jay and Cathy Abels were supported there. Church Planting: Musanze, Rwanda At present, our main support goes to Murphy and Christine Crowson. They are part of a team that was incredibly fruitful in working among the Watchi people of Togo, west Africa, successfully planting dozens of native churches. In 2008, they left Togo, leaving the churches in the hands of God and mature, local leaders. In January 2009, they (and other team members) began an exciting new work of planting and maturing churches in Musanze, Rwanda, central Africa. We are proud to partner with them in this effort. For more on their current work, www.rwandaharvest.com For more on their former work, www.watchiharvest.com Global Justice In 2009, Southern Hills was recognized as an official “Justice Church” by International Justice Mission. IJM is a Christian human-rights agency that operates in countries all over the world to rescue victims of individual human rights abuse, working to combat human trafficking, forced labor slavery, illegal detention, unprosecuted rape, police brutality and illegal land seizure. Based on referrals of abuse received from relief and development organizations, IJM conducts professional investigations of the abuses and mobilizes intervention on behalf of the victims. The four-fold purpose of IJM is victim relief, perpetrator accountability, structural prevention and victim aftercare. IJM was founded by Gary Haugen who, in 1994, was the director of the United Nations genocide investigation in Rwanda. We are proud to support their important work. For more, www.ijm.org
