The round table discussion will allow for parents to select what age group they would like to focus on for the time together.
We would love for you to join - even it's just for the food and dad jokes!

Mexico Missions Trip to CDL
April 20th - April 28th, 2018
Our team of 26 will serve in practical ways such as playing with and teaching children, praying for the staff or whatever needs the Casa de Luz facility and team house may need to bring the love of Jesus!
The team will reach out to the poor, start building projects, have neighbourhood parties, have some valuable worship and devotion time together!
It all happens in Primo Tapia, Baja, Mexico! We will partner and stay with Casa de Luz (CDL)! This children's home has been helping single mothers since August of 2012. The children at CDL have the opportunity to be cared for and receive the love of Jesus while their mothers work. Since the fathers have abandoned them, the children would otherwise be left alone.
The MP team will stay in the team house at CDL. Bunk beds and bedding are all provided! Flush toilets and showers and a full kitchen is available for the team to cook their own meals.
The trip is intergenerational for families and those who are single. A teen under the age of 16 would require a parent or guardian to accompany them.
Family Discount of 10% off after second family member! Included in the cost are all expenses such as food, accommodations, travel, and ministry expenses:
- Single $765.00
- Family of 2 $1,530.00
- Family of 3 $2,065.50
- Family of 4 $2,754.00
- Family of 5 $3,442.50
- Family of 6 $4,131.00
Flight costs will most likely positively effect costs ($50-$75/each off currents costs). Will NOT be more.
Proof of passport required 6 weeks BEFORE trip date.
INFORMATION MEETING: Sunday, October 15th in the Baker Room (9:00 - 9:30 am)
- $100.00 deposit per PERSON required by Sunday, January 21st (non-fundable).

As a TEAM we will decide when the two training days will be. The training days prepare us for our time in Mexico with a focus on teamwork and communicating the love of Jesus in Mexico.
