Coordinating Bible Verse: 

But blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in him. They will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes: its leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit. 
Jeremiah 17:7,8

Coordinating Song: 
"Thrive" by Casting Crowns

Theme for 14-15: Ready, Set, Serve!
Theme for 13-14: God has... God is... God will...

Student Tragedy
It is with extreme sadness that we share with our MJA family the news of the passing of Ronnie Zelaya, an 11th grade student. Our hearts are breaking for his family and friends. Ronnie was a young man FULL of life and laughter and he will be remembered in our hearts just as that. Funeral arrangements are being made and will be posted here as soon as they have been confirmed with the family. Many of you have asked if there is something you can do to help and there has been a gofundme page created in his honor. https://www.gofundme.com/2dqxr7es. Please join us in lifting this family in prayer for the loss of a son, a brother and a friend. Even so...Lord Jesus come.
