Hello Parents!

IT IS ALMOST HERE! Camp is less than three weeks away now! Can you believe it?! We are SO EXCITED (as if you couldn’t tell)!!! With camp coming up, we have a few reminders that we want to make sure you are aware of! First, it is not too late to sign up for camp, but this Sunday is the last day. So if your student, or your student’s friend, has not signed up yet this Sunday is their last chance! Then, the following Sunday on the 14th is our parent meeting for all students and their parents going to camp. This is a very important meeting to attend, so please make sure you are able to make it. It will be held in the Middle School room after the second worship/Connect Group hour. And finally, as we count down the days please join us in praying for all the pastors, leaders, and students who will be a part of camp!

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!

Registration is STILL open until this Sunday!! You can register online HERE or pick-up a registration card at the Student Welcome Desk We desire for our student's lost friends to come to know Jesus as Savior and Lord, so we are offering a free trip to camp for friends of our students who do not attend church. Stop by the Student Welcome Desk and ask for a Yellow Camp Package for unchurched friends. We will have a parent meeting for camp on Sunday, July 14th.

We are so blessed to be able to offer scholarships to our students that desire to go to camp! And with those scholarships provided, this year we have asked that all students participate in at least 10 hours serving at one of our church ministries such as Breaking Bread and Compassion House. Mrs. Debbie Ray (Pastor Billy’s wife) is our contact person to record all the hours student work there so please inform her when your student serves for their hours.

Crossover is a Middle School event to welcome our new upcoming 6th graders! It will be at the Lakeland campus and will be for both Church at the Mall and Auburndale middle schoolers! This is an EPIC event that your middle schooler will not want to miss out on! Stay tuned for more info!

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 we can! If there is anything we can do to help, please feel the freedom to let us know.
