Hello Parents!

The Middle School Miami Mission Trip is SOOOOOO close! This will be our second year ministering to the city of Miami, and after last year’s trip, we could not be more EXCITED!!! We still have spots available if your student has not signed up yet! We believe that middle schoolers can make a difference for the Kingdom and can rise to the challenge if we set the bar for them in the name of Jesus. For those going on the trip, there will be a very important parent meeting following the 10:45am service this Sunday, May 26th. If you are unable to attend please email us at and we can send you all the info. Please join us in praying for our students and leaders as we share the love of Jesus to the city of Miami!

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.
