Hello Parents!

We have activities tonight for students!!! We are so excited to get back to the swing of things and spend time hanging out, ministering to, and having a blast with students! Tonight we will be playing dodgeball and watching a movie! Students will have the option to watch a movie (How to Train Your Dragon 3), to play black light dodgeball, or both! This will be for BOTH middle school and high school students. During this time we will also get the opportunity to open up God’s Word and briefly share our vision for the school year and our hope for our student ministry. We will start programming at 6:15pm and go until 8pm. Can’t wait!!!

Love you all tons, and as always please let us know if we can ever be of assistance to you and your students. We are here for you.


These are the big events that are coming up in our student ministry!

Please go to for more information!

Crossover is a Middle School event to welcome our new upcoming 6th graders! It will be at the Lakeland campus and will be for both Church at the Mall and Auburndale middle schoolers! This is an EPIC event that your middle schooler will not want to miss out on! The cost for Crossover will be $15 (this price includes the cost of the Taco Bell food truck)! Here is the schedule!

  • 9am – Pancakes with Parents! This will be a great time for Pastor Chad and Shaela to spend time with all of the new upcoming 6th graders and their parents! This will also take place at our Auburndale Campus for students there with Pastor Curtis!

  • 10:30am – All other middle schoolers (all upcoming 7th and 8th grades) will arrive for Crossover. Auburndale students will meet at the Auburndale Campus at 10am to ride over to the Lakeland Campus.

  • 11:00am – Let the awesomeness begin!

  • 4:00pm – head home and we will see you the next day for PROMOTION SUNDAY!

There will be a time during Crossover where we will have a COLORWAR! This is where we will throw color powder at one another (it’s gonna be AWESOME!). So it would be recommended that students wear clothes they do not mind getting very messy.

Promotion Sunday is this Sunday!!! We will be officially moving our students up to their new grades! This Sunday will be full of excitement, games, God’s Word, and donuts! We will also be welcoming in our new 6th graders to our ministry! This is going to be an awesome Sunday! See you then!

Midweek activities all across the church officially kickoff on August 14th!

Is God calling you to make a public profession of your faith by being baptized? Then we invite you to join us on Sunday, August 18th as we gather outside the large steps on our Lakeland campus to celebrate those who've answered that call! We will be celebrating with an outdoor baptism service that will take place in between our 9:15am and 10:45am services. This is for any and everyone to attend and take part in! If you would like to be baptized or get more information about baptism email us!

If you are interested in receiving event announcements via text message, just text the phrase mallstudents to the phone number 89800.

We love and care about the families in our ministry so deeply, and our heart is to serve you and your family in the best way we can! If there is anything we can do to help, please feel the freedom to let us know.
