Monthly fellowship events including seasonal retreats which provide opportunities for fellowship, fun, and spiritual growth.
Ensenada Mission Trip
We are heading back to Ensenada to build a home for a new family through YWAM/Homes of Hope. The dates of the trip are April 25-28. We are going to fly into San Diego on Thursday, head to Ensenada early on Friday morning, start building a home by mid Friday morning, continue to work on the home on Saturday, be blessed and change lifes by giving the keys to a family on late Saturday afternoon. We will come home on Sunday! It is a life changing experience and we hope you consider joining us. I will attach the application to this email. The cost is $825. This includes flight, transportation, lodging, food, and program costs. If you sign up after the 6th, the cost may go up because we will not have a group rate. The application packet is attached to this email. The Taco Feed fundraiser is set for March 24th. We host a taco feed to help raise funds for the cost of the building supplies (approx. $7000).
High School Kiva Loan Dinner
Kiva Loans The high school youth are getting together and we will review our Kiva Loans. We will meet at Pastor Tom’s for dinner on February 10th. We will meet from 5:30pm to 7:30pm. RSVP to PT, email@example.com!
Whirlyball on February 24th For MS and HS youth…back by popular demand and because it is a crazy good time! We have spots for 15 to play Whirlyball (a game in bumper cars, kinda like lacrosse and basketball). No specific skill necessary other than being willing to have fun. We will leave St. Luke’s at 5:30pm and back by 8:30pm. The cost will be $15 and worth every penny. Bring a friend!
The sign-up date for Wilderness Ranch is February 27th. For MS and HS youth…We are going to the ranch in Alberta, BC on July 7-14th. In all my years of ministry, I would say that this experience is a very unique and something every youth should experience. It is a camp week that includes riding horses but it is so much more. The cost will be $450. Jesus shows up. I hope your schedule will be free to experience it. Friends are welcome.
