The Rooted and Rising Capital Campaign

Rooted and Rising! This phrase actually represents several things about Southside Christian School.
  • As a community of believers, we are each individually and corporately rooted in Christ. He is the vine, we are the branches.
  • We have a long history of continually becoming better at providing a distinctly Christian and rigorous education.
  • We believe God has called us to continue this mission and has a bright future to which we are rising!
After years of prayer and planning we have launched a significant expansion project to provide 35 new classrooms to meet the need of a growing school. Rooted and Rising is a capital campaign to fund this needed expansion.

When you look back over the history of SCS several things become evident. One can see God’s faithful hand of provision and protection in addition to seeing servants used by God to grow His school. Every 15 to 20 years God does something significant in the life of SCS. 

We're living through another significant time in the life and ministry of Southside Christian School. 

This significant expansion was approved by our board in April of 2021, and we have begun fundraising and planning with our architect and contractor. Lord willing, we will break ground on this expansion in March of 2022, and move into the facility in the late summer of 2023 for the 2023-2024 school year. 

We’re inviting everyone who is or has ever been a part of the SCS family to join us in supporting the Rooted and Rising Campaign. The need to expand is clear, and the only way we can do it is through generous gifts to SCS.

We are asking for your participation in this campaign in three ways:
  • Pray for our future – every time you drive by, come on campus, or get an email from us – which is A LOT!
  • Tell your friends and neighbors about all that God is doing at SCS.
As we seek support for this campaign, we wholeheartedly agree with Paul’s instructions about giving in 2 Corinthians 9: 7-8.
“You must each make up your own mind as to how much you should give. Don’t give reluctantly or in response to pressure. For God loves the person who gives cheerfully.” 

To raise the $19.5 million needed to fund this expansion will take our entire school community getting involved. As we grow we will continue to invite everyone to participate in this campaign. Our desire is to encourage biblical generosity, above and beyond giving to one’s local church.

Thank you for praying for and supporting the Rooted and Rising Capital Campaign.
