Let the Fundraising Begin!

Our fund raising for the mission trip is off to a great start!  Each class has done well in their first week.  Our most creative award implemented this past Sabbath winner goes to the Primary class!

But unfortunately for them the great music wasn’t enough to surpass our Junior class.  The Juniors are in the lead having raised over $54!!!

But do not count out our Cradle Roll friends.  There is a very generous anonymous donor that has challenged the other cradle roll parents!  If the cradle roll class can raise $300 the donor will donate another $100!  Let the fund raising begin!!

Here are your totals:

Juniors:  $54

Primary: $37

Cradle Roll:  $18

Tiny Tots: $17

Kindergarten:  $16

Young Adults: $12

Spring Break Mission Trip to Roatan Honduras

The church is officially introducing the Mission Trip to Honduras 10.11.08 at 10AM in the Garden Chapel. This will be an informational meeting for those that are interested in taking part in this ministry opportunity.  The dates are going to be March 22-29, 2009.   The mission trip is designed to be an ongoing  mission of the Calimesa Church.

With the guidance of Steve Dunbar we have chosen two communities on the eastern side of Roatan; Camp Bay which has a little over 100 people and Diamond Rock which has a population of around 600. These two communities are often neglected and have great needs.

The young adults have already done a scouting pre-trip this past August and designing a trip that will be friendly for families.  This mission trip is open to the entire Calimesa family but will be limited to 30 committed people, so if you are interested please do not hesitate.

If you are hesitant because of language don’t be.  Many residents of Roatan speak English.
