Spring Time and Easter Celebration

Trees are budding, flowers are blooming, and the air is crisp and fresh. Spring indicates new life, transformation, and awakening. Interestingly enough, to followers of Jesus, Easter indicates the same truths. Jesus came to die on the cross and come back to life three days later to give us new life. When we give our hearts to Him, He transforms us. Our hearts are awakened to His great love.

This is why we bring gifts to you! We have experienced Jesus in such a way that we can’t help but to share His love with others. We desire to bless women with a bag of goodies and the message of Jesus’ great love. He meets us where we are and lavishes His unfailing love on us.

If you received an Easter gift, we are so happy that you took the next step to check out our website. Please look around, leave a comment, send us a message if you feel so inclined. We are glad you stopped by. If you are a dancer and did not receive a gift, please go to the “For Dancers Only” tab and fill out the form. We would love to send you a gift!

Easter is a time to celebrate the coming spring, but more than that, a time to celebrate Jesus’ strong, true, and pure love for us! Happy Easter, friends!

Psalm 36:7 How precious is your unfailing love, O God! All humanity finds shelter in the shadow of your wings.


It’s That Time of Year

Merry Christmas! We love this time of year…Jesus’ birthday, cold weather (sort of), good chocolate, and gift giving!

To think that we’ve been passing out gifts like these for seven years at many different clubs in Tucson seems unreal. If this is your first time receiving a gift from us, we hope you enjoy it. If you’ve received many, we hope you get excited about the goodies each time a gift comes to you. Either way, we would love to hear from you. Leave a comment or pop over to the “Just for Dancers” page and send us your contact information and we will send you another package. We would love to strike up a friendship with you!

Below is a video of a group of us putting the gifts together. We take a lot of time and joy in picking out each item. Please enjoy watching the process and know that you are continually thought of and prayed for!

Merry Christmas from your friends at Cord of Hope** (Second Mile.)

**We’ve changed the name of our group that gives gifts for a couple of reasons:

One, we love hope. We love what it stands for, we love how it makes us feel, we love what it offers. Each gift we give in the Name of Jesus is given with the hope that whoever receives it will know the hope that Jesus offers.

Two, Second Mile (our church) is growing…a lot. We want to make sure that people who buy gifts, put gifts together, and give the gifts are all on the same page. Second Mile still supports these efforts, but the church is also starting all kinds of different opportunities to love all kinds of different people in our community. Cord of Hope provides an opportunity to love women in the adult entertainment industry of Tucson.

If you have any questions about our name change, please don’t hesitate to ask!

Merry Christmas!

Last night we passed out about 100 beautiful Christmas gifts, 8 managers gifts, and 10 bags of baked goodies for bouncers and DJs. We were met with smiles and hugs. So many of the women know us and look forward to seeing us arrive with colorful, lotion-filled, chocolate flowing presents.

If you received a gift, please take a look around the website. Click on the Second Mile sign on the sidebar to visit our official church website. We truly do love you and would love to hear from you!

Have a very merry Christmas!!

A Safe Place to Learn and Worship

This is a just a reminder that if you would really like to attend a church worship service, but don’t want to be judged, ignored, or looked down upon, Second Mile is the place for you.  People from all walks of life come to our church.  You can wear whatever your comfortable in… your favorite jeans or cut-off shorts.  Come sit in the back, right smack dab in the middle, or front and center.  You can come early or sneak in late.

We’ve been taking gifts to the clubs for six years now. We will continue to do so whether dancers decide to come or not. Hopefully, some of you truly know we value and pray for you!

Chocolate and Gobstoppers

We delivered four plastic pumpkins stuffed full of candy to Bunny Ranch, Candy Store, and Tens this evening. It may take a small army to finish off all that candy, or maybe just some dancers who need a sweet tooth fix.

Please know that we think about you throughout the year. You are loved!

'Tis the Season

We are excited to be giving out 170 beautiful Christmas gifts this weekend! We will be visiting Tens, the Bunny Ranch, the Candy Store, and Turbulence. This year we filled the bags with Victoria Secret lotion, jewelry, socks or gloves, other unique items, and of course, chocolate. It is a gift any woman would be excited to receive.

As always each gift has a Second Mile artist designed book of Jesus’ birth taken straight from the Bible. It is our hope that the dancers will read the awesomeness of Jesus coming to earth and that the gift we give them will be a small reminder that Jesus has so much more to give than we could ever ask or imagine.

If this is your first time visiting our brand new super cool website, welcome!! Take a look around, submit a comment, shoot us an email. Dancers, we love you and look forward to hearing from you.

Merry Christmas!!

Happy Halloween

For the past five years, Second Mile has been taking gift bags to dancers in men’s clubs at Easter and Christmas. These are beautiful bags and we are glad to be able to bless dancers in this way. We are excited that this year we have been able to expand and today we brought big buckets of Halloween candy to leave in the dressing rooms of the clubs. We hope to be able to remind the girls that we love and care for them throughout the year. Happy Halloween!
