I received the opportunity to go on a mission trip to Vicente Guerrero, Baja California, Mexico from August 2-16, 2017, with a few people from our youth group this year. Members of our group joined with other church groups and together we journeyed South on a coach bus. Travelling together brought me so close to people who, two weeks earlier, were strangers to me. I wish I never had to leave this group of people because they have really become family to me. I didn't think you could become so close to people in that short amount of time. Some may think that the bus ride would be terrible, but the bus rides were some of the best bonding times. At the orphanage, we stayed in the visitor centre.

Here's our summer calendar (click read more).
The end of September might sound like a long way off, but it will be here before you know it!

We’re praying that the fruit of this recording would be healthier marriages and homes. Would you join us in praying for those that listen and for our own hearts, that we would have the courage to live in the light and experience the beauty of living life in light of the cross.

A dozen students and leaders returned on Sunday after a great weekend on Mt. Seymour wrapping up the Alpha series (an introduction to the Gospel). Thank you for praying for our students and leaders!
A number of students collected, sorted and redeemed $280 worth of bottles for their missions trip to Mexico.
