We are so grateful to partner with you in leading teens to a relationship with Christ! Over the past couple of months, we have seen lives changed from students bringing their friends to church events and building relationships with them! We are so pumped for High School Retreat scheduled for November 9-10, so mark your calendars. It will be in Orlando this year and it will look completely different than last year! We will provide more details in the coming weeks!
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.
HERE'S WHAT'S HAPPENING IN STUDENT WORLD!
These are the big events that are coming up in our student ministry!
Please go to www.mallstudents.com for more information!
We started our “I Will” series last week. Our focus tonight will be on "I will welcome". We want our students to know the importance, as a Christian and the church, of welcoming others!
ALL IN (STUDENT LEADERSHIP)
In our ministry, we believe that students are the best ones to lead students. All In is a student leadership opportunity to get plugged in to lead in our student ministry. Our first All In meeting will be Sunday, September 9th at 8:15am (Meet in the Warehouse).
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 that we can! If there is anything we can do to help, please feel the freedom to let us know.

We are launching a new series focusing on how Jesus described himself in Scripture—it’s called “In His Own Words.” Each week, our teenagers will explore the ways Jesus “framed” who he is—his purpose, motivation, and intentions.
In the first lesson, we will explore John 14:1-6, where Jesus promised his disciples that the terrible things that were about to happen to him on the cross would be overshadowed by the hope and certain strength of his presence. He is “the way, the truth, and the life,” and none of us can find our way to God on a path other than him.
This week, I encourage you to spend a few minutes talking with your teenager about our lesson. Consider building your conversation around these questions:
- Why doesn’t God simply answer our prayers by always changing our circumstances? What does he offer instead?
- How does Jesus’ bold statement that he is the only way to God compare to our culture’s stance on “finding God”?
- If we treated Jesus as the only source of truth and life, how would that change or challenge the way we live today?
Thanks for all your prayers for our students and our ministry. Have a great week!
