I have been married to my awesome wife Michelle for 23 years & we have 4 wonderful children Bobby 27 yrs, Clayton 16 yrs & a junior at MGA, Micheala 13 yrs, 8th grade at MGA and Kylea 8 yrs at the SDA Mentone Team school & 16 month granddaughter Alayna. We moved here Dec 24th 2009 from 29 Palms CA, so all our children could receive a christian education! After touring the country side we fell in love with MGA! Monterey Bay came in a close 2nd place.
I retired from the United State Marines in 2003 with 21 years of active service. Shortly after serving in the gulf war, I have been working with children in all areas of our children ministries department within our local church. My family & I love to travel and eat! One of our favorite places to visit is Yellowstone & Glacier National Parks. Our favorite fast food is Del taco / Chipotle & our favorite dining is the Macaroni grill. We do eat out a lot, cause Michelle & I are not crazy about cooking?? We love to swim, snorkel, and just experience anything outdoors with nature. That’s why we moved to 29 Palms to begin with, cause we loved the rocks up at Joshua Tree National Park!! We also love to play games with family & friends and just getting to know people, by hanging out with them!! We chose the Calimesa church, because our kids loved it there from the start and we felt very welcomed there. It’s been great sitting in sabbath school together with Michelle getting spiritually fed a different way!! We haven’t been able to do that in almost 20 years! I have spent 14 years with the Pathfinders & 6 years with the Adventurers! I knew it was just a matter of time? God’s time, before I would get back into it!
So now I’ve been asked to be your Adventurer leader for this year and support you the parent, in assisting your children with the task of developing fully as followers of Christ! This year there are a number of things I would love to see happened with each child, but the one thing I strive to accomplish for each child is for them to commit their hearts and lives to Jesus Christ! It’s a great way for them to get away and experience ways to develop a Christ like character, to experience the joy and satisfaction of doing things well, to learn good sportsmanship and strengthen their ability to get along with others well and so much more they will learn this next year in the Adventurers! The Adventurer Program is designed to have the parents present with their child at all meetings, and outreach events, to assist & experience with their child all there is in the Adventurer program. If your schedule does not allow you to do so, that too will be fine and I would still love to have the opportunity to lead your child in the Adventurer program. We have many things that we would like to do this year that we have done in the past with other clubs. We would need your support to assist in any area’s from being a counselor, instructor or assisting with any of the outreach activities or events, like the Adventurer Beach day, Adventurer Fun / Fair day at the conference grounds, camping trips, hikes, bike rides, etc….
Once again I thank you for the opportunity to assist you in leading our children to be a follower of Christ! I look forward to meeting with each and every one of you and your children!
I’m Euni Cho, your new Children’s Choir Director. My family and I have been at the Calimesa SDA Church for 4 years. While we have been involved in the background for Sabbath School, Vacation Bible School and Children’s Choir, I felt God’s leading to do more for the church family that has embraced us and been the source of many blessings for my family, so I am looking forward to serving in this way.
First, let me introduce you to my family. My husband, Richard, and I are dentists by trade. Richard is in private practice and I work for the School of Dentistry. We have 3 children: Sarah (12), Gunney (9) and Joshua (6). We reside in Loma Linda and our kids attend Loma Linda Academy. We made the decision to attend Calimesa Church because our children’s friends were attending Calimesa Church. Immediately, we were blessed by the beautiful children’s programs and worship services. Ultimately, it was the warm church family that made us feel at home.
Our family enjoys travelling and our favorite destination is the Bay Area. Despite all our travels, our favorite restaurant is still Adong in good ole Loma Linda, CA. A perfect Sunday would be to watch our boys play a flag football game and then watch our daughter play a volleyball game; eat lunch at The Corner Bakery; and hang out at REI.
I am excited to be involved in the Children’s Choir. I whole-heartedly believe it is a ministry. I see kids who were formerly in Children’s Choir, now helping with Sabbath School and VBS; I see the same kids in the Easter Pageant; involved in the praise teams. Calimesa youth know the meaning of service and it starts at a very young age here. Children’s Choir is such a wonderful way to help kids feel like they are part of the worship service. Personally, I love anything to do with children and music in the church!
How can you help Children’s Choir? Please pray for our ministry. We start on October 15. In an effort to include as many kids as possible, we are trying Choir at 10:50 a.m. We will end and walk the kids into the sanctuary for Children’s Story. So please save a seat for us and keep an eye out for your kids. Oh, and don’t forget to register online!
