We have lots of fun things planned for summer 2019! Scroll down and check out some upcoming opportunities, and watch this page for other upcoming events at Southminster.

Family Fun Night was a Hoot!

We had a wild time at our last Family Fun Night of the school year. Sue’s Party Animals brought hedgehogs, turtles, mice, bunnies, and lots of other furry friends that we could touch and pet. There were also games, toys, crafts, and a yummy pasta dinner. Click here to view our Facebook photo album. See you in the fall!

Family Camp for Children, their Parents, & Grandparents

Stronghold Family Camp is where many friendships and memories are born. Camp Stronghold provides a safe, nurturing, Christian experience for youth as a caring community in a natural environment. Stronghold Family Camp offers opportunities to grow in a relationship with God and one another and to increase understanding and appreciation for the nature world.
