NO WEDNESDAY NIGHT STUDENT SERVICE | AUGUST 9TH: There are no evening activities at the church tonight. Enjoy this night with your family as one of the few Summer nights we have left!

CROSSOVER | AUGUST 12TH: Crossover is an action packed event to welcome our new 6th graders into our Middle School Ministry! Crossover will begin with “Pancakes with Parents” in room 460 at 9:00am. This will be an orientation for our upcoming 6th graders and their families ONLY. Please include how many will be attending the breakfast when you RSVP.

After orientation, all students going into 6th, 7th and 8th grades will join together for the Crossover event at 10:00 am. The price for the event is $15/student. This includes one hour of jump time at 2Infinity, and lunch at Cici’s Pizza. Please register for this event at www.mallstudents.com/events/crossover.

We will have vans available to transport the students to 2Infinity Trampoline Park here in Lakeland and will jump there from 11:00am to 12:00pm.  After 2Infinity we will go to Cici’s Pizza on Hwy 98 N for lunch. We will finish up the event at the church by playing black light dodge ball.  Parents can pick up their students at the church in the student room (#460) at 4:00pm.

IMPORTANT: Your student must have BOTH a NOTARIZED student ministry waiver and a PRINTED 2Infinity waiver BEFORE Saturday. Cindy Beaudreault will be available in the Church at the Mall student offices today and tomorrow to notarize waivers if you would like to come by. The 2Infinity waivers can be found here: https://2infinity.pfestore.com/waiver/. Please bring both waivers when you come to Crossover on Saturday. If your student attended any other event this year (2017) we may have a Student Ministry Waiver on file. You can email us at students@churchatthemall.com to verify.

PROMOTION SUNDAY | AUGUST 13TH: Promotion Sunday is August 13th and this will be when your student will move up into their new grade!
If this is your student’s first Sunday with us in student ministry, we could not be more excited to have them join us!
We will all meet in the Warehouse, aka the student ministry area after the 9:30 worship service (around 10:45). There will be volunteers there to help direct your student to their small group tables, as well as to help with any questions you may have! Look for the amazing people holding the “How May I Help You?” signs! They are here for YOU!

STUDENT WORSHIP KICKOFF | AUGUST 16TH: Our Wednesday night HUB kickoff is August 16th! This will be an epic start to the school year and our fall series in the student ministry! Make sure your students do not miss out on this night and that they bring a friend, or FIVE!

PARENT EQUIP SESSIONS | AUGUST 16TH, 23RD and 30TH: Attention Parents! If you have a child in the Preschool, Children's, or Student Ministries, you won't want to miss this opportunity! Join us for a 3 week series designed for parents on Wednesday evenings at 6:15pm in Theatre 2.  Parenting in today's culture can be a daunting task and we want you to know that you are not alone! We would love the opportunity to partner with you on this amazing journey! As all parents know, it takes a village to raise a child!

What an absolute blessing it is to be able to partner with you! You are loved deeply and appreciated. If you have any questions, we’re here for you!
