There’s a lot about Southridge Church that is new, but we’ve actually been in the Tri-Cities since 1968. We are grounded and growing on the cornerstone of Christ. Below you will learn a little bit about why we exist, where we’ve been, where we are, and by God’s grace, where we’re headed.
Our Mission
To share God’s peace and strength in the Southridge area of the Tri-Cities.
Our Vision
To be a church that is active in our community for the benefit of our community.
Our History
Southridge Church started as King of Kings Lutheran Church. It began as a four-family group in 1968. They grew to be able to support their own pastor in 1970 and built a church building at the corner of Edison and 5th in Kennewick in 1975. At one point, King of Kings ran a Christian K-8 day school in that church building. During the last decade, we grew out-grew our facility. As we grew, we also kept getting younger and younger as a congregation. In response to this blessing, we made plans to expand our ministries and relocate to a place where we could offer them.
Our Present
We have now completed our relocation and building project at the corner of S Sherman and Bob Olson Parkway (just west of Southridge High School) and have been using our facility since May 2020. Later that Fall, we opened up Southridge Early Childhood Center. This preschool (3K, 4K, and 5K) ministry is now thriving and actively serves dozens of children and their families daily.
Our Future
Only God knows what is in store for us, but guided by His Word and our mission, we continue to plan to expand our ministry in the Tri-Cities. Our goal is to plant ministries in West Richland and Pasco to serve as local bases from which to share peace and strength in God with those communities.
