 JAMAICA

High School Mission Trip... July 16 - July 24, 2017

That’s right- this year we are going international!  Jamaica is the third largest island in the Caribbean and home to approximately 3 million people.  The official language is English.  While most people think of Jamaica as an island paradise full of luxury resorts, poverty is extensive on the island - the average income is only $2,500 per year! A large number of Jamaicans live in very poor conditions, with overcrowded or unsafe housing, inadequate nutrition, and limited access to clean water, quality health care, or education. 45% of the population are children and youth (age 0-24) and the majority of them grow up fatherless and in poverty. 

We will be working in partnership with Caribbean Lifetime Missions, which was founded in 1990 and has extensive experience developing customized mission trips.  We will stay at their Camp in Bamboo, Jamaica, about 40 minutes from Ocho Rios.  We will be involved in home repair, children’s ministry, sports ministry, discipleship and mentoring and possibly other ministries.  We will be working hard and focusing on building relationships with the local people, thru which we can share about the hope that is found in a relationship with Jesus. 

 

 

Mission Trip Fundraisers

Get certified in CPR & BASIC FIRST AID!  We are pleased to be able to offer this class at a very low cost – only $49 (which is about half of the cost charged in many other places). It happens right here at Christ Church Saturday, March 4th from 8-11 AM. Jason Volkers is an American Heart certified instructor and he makes this a fun, informative, and ‘no-stress about passing the test’ class. At the end of class you will be certified for 2 years in Adult, Child, and Infant CPR, Basic First Aid and AED (Automated External Defibrillator). Also, with the low cost and fun atmosphere, it is perfect for Teens, Tweens, Grandparents, those in the Child Care Profession, and anyone else who wants to know how to save a life! Please register by emailing Teri Shepard.

The H.S. Youth Mission Trip Team is doing a COOKIE DOUGH and SNACK FUNDRAISER.  This fundraiser is primarily aimed outside our church but last year there were some people within our church that were 
disappointed that they didn't know about it.  If you are interested in placing an order or seeing what there is to choose from
please email Teri  

THE "CANS FOR MISSIONS" TRAILER 
is on hold for the winter months.  Look for it to beback out in the parking lot in the Spring.
