Whether or not you went to camp with us, this devotional, written by District Youth Directors from all over the country (including our very own DYD, Pastor Casey Casal), is a powerful devotional designed to take you to the next level with Jesus. You can join our group devotional through the Youversion Bible App. Each day has a devotional reading, Scripture reading, and a place to share what God has spoken to you today so that everyone in our group can see and enjoy.

El Salvador Missions Trip
Wednesday-Wednesday, July 17-24
Pastor Amanda, Roneisha, and Skylar leave for El Salvador on a missions trip on Wednesday, July 17. They will be joining a group of about 25 from all across the Pen-Florida District to minister to children and families in El Salvador. Please be in prayer for the team, for safety, favor, and a massive outpouring of the Spirit in El Salvador, and a lasting life-change in the lives of the team.

The Youth Pool party for this summer will be on Saturday, July 27. Meet at the church at 10:30am. Pickup will be at 3pm at the church. A Permission Slip is required, which you can download here. To give us a head count for lunch and snacks, use the form below to sign-up.
We will be having a Water Baptism on Sunday, July 28, during the 10am Service. If you would like to be baptized, or would like to learn more about what Water Baptism is, head over the the Water Baptism page.
National Fine Arts Festival
Monday-Friday, July 29-August 2
Those registered for the National Fine Arts Festival will be heading down to Orlando to compete during the week of Monday-Friday, July 29-August 2. Any questions can be directed to Pastors Daniel or Amanda.
The Great Race
Sunday, August 4, 5:30pm
Part of the Summer Contest, the Great Race is one of the last opportunities to earn massive points! The Great Race is a giant relay race that we do outside. Students will be divided into teams, and each student will have the chance to participate in different relay events, including things such as a quarter-mile sprint, jello bobbing, slip and slide, shaving cream battle, sword drill (Bible drill), and many more. Students will get wet, dirty, and potentially covered in shaving cream, so they should wear old clothes and bring a towel (and maybe a change of clothes as well).
Teacher Appreciation Luncheon
Friday, August 9 11am (Volunteers need to be there at 10am)
Pastors Daniel, Amanda, and Strickland are a part of an organization called Operation Bless Wildwood. They do a Teacher Appreciation Luncheon every August for all the teachers, administration, and support staff in the Wildwood School District, around 200 people. We feed them lunch, pray over them, and give all kinds of door prizes and school supplies to them. It takes a lot of volunteers to setup, feed, and clean up afterwards. Students are encouraged to come help out, especially since many of our students go to Wildwood. There will be a ton of points given to students for the Summer Contest if they come help. See Pastor Daniel for details.
Summer Contest Finale
Sunday, August 11, 5:30pm
All good things must come to an end. The Summer Contest Finale is a party held every year to celebrate the summer, celebrate what God has done, celebrate the upcoming school year, and to announce a winner of the contest. There will be lots of food, a few final games, a devotion and challenge for the beginning of school.

Youth Church - Sunday Nights, 5:30-8pm in the gym
Our main event every week is our Youth Service. We open the gym at 5:30pm and let the students come and hang out for about half an hour. At 6pm we have group prayer, and at 6:15pm we start our Youth Service. Designed from the ground up with teens in mind, this is a Church Service just for them. We have games, videos, and a cafe. But, more importantly, we have a Youth Band for live worship, and a Bible Study. It's a great time hanging out in the presence of God and learning about His Word.
Club 612 - Friday nights, 6-9pm in the gym
It was our observation that there wasn't much to do around here for students on Friday nights except perhaps get into trouble, so we opened up our church gym to give them a safe place to hang out and play basketball. Around 7:30 or so we stop and do a short devotion and prayer before we get the games going again. There is usually a free snack, and our cafe offers sodas and other snack foods for purchase. This is our foot in the door of the lives of students who may not come to church for a Bible Study.
Basketball Clinic - Friday Nights, 6:30-7:30pm in the gym (During Club 612)
Every week during Club 612, we have a free basketball clinic facilitated by a former NCAA certified coach. This is a free clinic for any beginning and intermediate students in grades 6-12 that would like to come. There is no registration required (other than the standard check-in for Club 612), and no commitment. Students can just show up and participate. Coach Chris will lead them through proper warm-ups, dribbling, handling, passing, and shooting drills, and live game assessments.
