Sunday, July 1st

Hello Parents!

We are so excited to head out to the ball park this evening with so many of our students and many of you! This will be a great time of fellowship, fun, and ALL YOU CAN EAT FOOD! We will meet at Joker Marchant Stadium at 6pm tonight. If you signed up on Sunday, look for our table at the main gate to pick up your prepaid tickets. See you tonight!!!

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!

There are two ways to sign up. You can sign up online by clicking the link HERE or you can sign up at the welcome desk on Sunday! Camp is less than a month away! The fee for camp is now $350. Important dates:

  • 7/8 will be the last day to sign up for camp.
  • 7/15 will be our camp parent meeting after church!

A $50 non-refundable deposit is due at the time of registration in order to lock in your spot for camp! It will be an amazing week! If you are registering online, you can include your payment amount starting with the $50 deposit or any amount up to $350. Making manageable payments has never been easier!

This year, we have the amazing opportunity to extend free trips to camp for students who are unchurched and unsaved. We are so excited about this opportunity for students to reach out and get their lost and unchurched friends to camp and give God the opportunity to do a work in their lives! Please consider praying for the friends that will be invited and remember, WE ONLY HAVE A LIMITED NUMBER OF SPOTS!

Students will raise their own funds to go to camp by asking others to consider donating a dollar amount to help them go to camp, which they will signify on the Vertical Camp fundraising card. Parents of students will sign out this card at the Welcome Desk. If your student has not fully completed their fundraising envelop, they still have time! There will be a drawing July, 8th for amazing prizes for those who have their envelops completed and turned in by then. Click HERE for the info letter and for any questions please come see us at the Welcome Desk in the Student area or email us at

Colossians 1:28-29


Dear Parents,

We will complete our three-lesson series called “Neighbors and Enemies.” This week we will make it personal: We will discuss how even though Jesus’ love covers all of humanity, he’s still passionate about each individual person.

After turning the focus inward, we will turn it outward. When we realize how completely and unconditionally Jesus loves us, we can spread that contagious love to others.

This week, I encourage you to spend a few minutes talking with your teenager about these themes. Consider building your conversation around these questions:

  • If Jesus loves each person individually, what is it about being the body of Christ that makes us stand out?
  • How does the love we show within our family reflect Jesus’ love for each of us?
  • What can we do—or keep doing—as a family to show people that God loves them individually?

Thanks for praying for our students and our ministry. May Jesus’ love shine in your household and in your lives! Have a blessed week!
