Haiti Missions trip - June 19-23 *A group of about 15 *RED students, Pastor Dan, and some additional famililies are headed to Haiti in a couple of months to join No Child Hungry in their ministry to orphans. Estimated cost is $1,000/person. Fund-raising is underway, and donations are being accepted to help underwrite the cost of the trip.

WASH ‘N WORSHIP *Today, during the worship service the *RED students will be washing cars as part of their fund-raising efforts for the Haiti missions trip in June. Donations in any amount will be accepted. Suggested donation for wash only is $10; for washing and detailing is $20.

BLOODMOBILE *The *Bloodmobile will be on campus next Sunday, April 26th, starting before Sunday School and continuing until shortly after the morning service. Look for the appointment sheet and sign up for this chance to BE THE CHURCH in our community.

30-HOUR FAMINE *RED* students will be participating in a 30-hour famine this coming weekend, April 24th-25th. They will go 30 hours without eating as an exercise to help them better understand the plight of children around the world who daily live with little or no food. Part of their purpose is also to raise support funds for the upcoming Haiti missions trip. When the “famine” ends for our students, they will lead the worship service on Sunday, April 26th. Please support them with your prayers as they wrestle with hunger, and plan for next Sunday’s worship.

*APRIL 26TH IS GREAT COMMISSION SUNDAY! *Take home a brochure/envelope and spend some time this week seeking God for how He would have you participate above and beyond your regular tithe. Bring your special offering with you next Sunday to assist the C&MA in spreading the GOSPEL around the world.
