Have you ever had gum stick to the bottom of your shoe? As much as you try and try, it is just nearly impossible to get the gum separated from the shoe! We want students to be like gum! Stick with me here (pun intended), we want our students to have a faith that sticks through their school years and throughout their adult lives. Together, with you, we strive to see that students have a faith in Jesus that remains constant and strong. It is a blessing to walk through this faith journey together.
Here is some info to stay connected, and as always, if there is anything we can do for you, just let us know!

WEDNESDAY NIGHT SERVICE | Tonight, we are wrapping up our Wednesday night teaching series called "Going Viral!" We have been taking a look at the early church and studying how the Gospel went viral and spread all over the known world at that time. We will see how God desires for His Truth to spread in our lives as well.
SUGAR RUSH | OCTOBER 25th: Start thinking about your costume! (And make those dentist appointments too!)
HIGH SCHOOL RETREAT | NOVEMBER 10TH & 11TH: This is our third annual high school retreat! We will be going to Cocoa Beach for two days to have a time of team building, leadership training, and a ton of fun! We will stay at Country Inn and Suites in Cape Canaveral. More details coming soon, but go ahead and mark your calendars because your student will not want to miss it!
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!

We’re continuing with our theme of servant leadership. This week, we will explore John 13, where Jesus washed His disciples’ feet. This act was shocking because Jesus knew He had “authority over everything” (John 13:3), yet He chose to approach His disciples in a rather humiliating fashion as a servant.
This act of service occurred just before Jesus was arrested, beaten, and then crucified. By humbling Himself, Jesus revealed His idea of true leadership: a model of service and sacrifice for the benefit of others.
This week, we encourage you to spend a few minutes talking with your teenager about our lesson. Consider building your conversation around these questions:
- With all the power Jesus had, why didn’t He make the disciples wash His feet?
- When Jesus asked the disciples to copy His behavior, what do you think He had in mind?
- What actions today might be comparable to washing feet in Jesus’ day?
- This week, how can we serve others in a way that shows this kind of humility?
We appreciate your prayers for our students and our ministry. We’re praying for you and your family, as well.
