The WAY Student Ministry



While many of our youth were out of town during the month of July we did go to Bob’s River Place on the Suwannee River twice. Talk about the kids having a great time, this was it! There are treehouses, rope swings, water slides, floating rafts, jumping platforms, log rolling and just good old-fashioned fun!   Summer is coming to a close and the kids will be going back to school this month. That does not mean the adventures and fun times stop. We have a big end of summer bash planned for September 7th and 8th at Rock the Universe! This is a two-day event that we will be staying in Orlando at Universal! The youth are very excited about this trip, as are the chaperones! More details to come at the time gets closer. Please see Tony for details and any questions you might have.

On September 23rd we invite everyone to stay for lunch after Sunday Services! The youth will be helping to prepare lunch and serving a family style meal. We will be serving Beef Stroganoff, salad, green beans, bread and for dessert you will have your choice of Apple or Peach crisp with ice cream. This is a fund raiser for the youth department, cost for lunch will be $10 per person. We hope you will make plans to stay for lunch and enjoy the fellowship.

We are always looking for more volunteers and/or chaperones to assist with the youth department. If this is something God has laid on your heart, please contact Tony Ridge 407-832-1162. God is doing remarkable things in this area of his church. We would love to have you be a part of it!  Please continue to come out on Sunday’s to Beef O’Bradys – Davenport and The Grille at Cypresswood – Winter Haven on Friday evenings for our Spirit Day’s!  This is a fantastic way to have a nice evening out and support the youth! We want to thank Duncan and Mary Ann Owen so graciously setting up these Spirit Day’s!

We will also be starting back up the Chick-fil-a fundraiser in September. We will have the date and times on Sunday morning announcement slides. Keep an eye out for it!

Summer is here, which means the youth’s annual World Changers trip is upon us. As the youth and chaperones head out the middle of the month, we ask you continue to keep them in your thoughts and prayers. I know there will be many stories of adventure, learning, and worship upon their return. We would like to thank each of you that have donated time, money and energy to make this trip happen.

On May 12th the youth were out in the community helping with the USPS annual canned food drive. We would like to extend a BIG thank you to the youth and adults who helped with this event. In addition, the youth will continue to serve in this mission by placing nonperishable food collection containers around the church. We want to ensure the Food Pantry is stocked and available to help those who might be in need in our church and in the community.

We will be planning other fun adventures and community minded projects for the summer, stay tuned for dates and announcements.We started the Spirit nights again at Chick-fil-A – Davenport, Beef O’Bradys – Davenport and The Grille at Cypresswood – Winter Haven…watch the bulletin for announcements for June dates.

We would greatly appreciate your support for these Spirit nights!
