Who We Are

Sōzō is Mountain Ridge Church’s youth group, and our mission is to build, connect, and grow. For an in depth understanding of our mission statement, check out our blog post: Our Mission Statement.

We fully declare that Jesus is the Savior of the world, and we can do nothing without Him! Sōzō has no purpose apart from Him, and our only purpose is to lead students closer in a relationship with Christ.

What does Sōzō mean? (σωζω) In the Biblical Greek, sōzō means to save, keep safe and sound, or to rescue from danger or destruction.

Ephesians 2:8-9

For it is by grace you have been saved (sōzō), through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast.

Who is invited?  Any individual between 6th and 12th grade.

Where do we meet?  We meet at the Warehouse (unless announced otherwise)

When do we meet?  Every Wednesday night from 6:30pm-8:30pm (unless announced otherwise)

Do you do anything other than Wednesday night meetings?  Yes we do!  Here’s a list of some of our big events in 2017-18… much more to come!

  • Creation ’17
  • Fall Retreat
