HAPPY BIRTHDAY, JESUS! PARTY


What better way to celebrate the birth of our Lord and

Savior than with a party! Children and youth in grades
K-12 will go to Grace Hall on December 17th after the

Children’s Message for a time of crafts, snacks and fun,

while the preschool children will enjoy their own

Bible-based movie and craft in their room.






GUATAMALA MISSION TRIP 2018
Will you go to Guatemala in 2018?


This would be a mission trip with Marcy Wright, and supported by our presbytery. The dates for the trip are July 23 - 30, 2018.

Registration is starting now and the first airline tickets will be purchased the first week of November 2017. (These will be the most cost-effective airline  tickets, so while tickets may be purchased later, they will cost more.)

Cost for the trip is around $1,000. There is $1,400 in a dedicated mission fund that is available for youth who would like to participle. How it is divided depends on how many youth are selected to go. 

In the past the Presbytery has also contributed $300, but that has not been confirmed for this year.

THERE IS NO AGE LIMIT ON THIS TRIP.  IT IS NOT JUST FOR YOUTH! Depending on the need and how many people choose to go, the Mission Committee will work with the participants to raise funds.

As Marcy and her team mentioned in their presentation, the trip may include Vacation Bible Study, house building, wheel chair fitting, and delivery of food and clothing. Also lots of love, hugs and joy. Here is an opportunity to be part of God's love in action! More information or to sign up please contact Kathy Hill (209-601-6192) and/or Marcy Wright (209-534-1292).

Don't feel that you can go right now?  You may also support this trip through donations for food, clothing, wheelchairs.  Monetary gifts that can be made are listed below.
