HELP WANTED!! We are VERY excited to announce that we will be

 Crossing. We hope to get this put in at the end of August.  We are

 looking for some volunteers to help with this building project. If you

 are willing to help please see Heather or email her at


OUR SPECIAL OFFERING for the month of June is designated for

 RCA Care NetWork/World Renew.  The RCA has partnered over the

 years with many organizations and their relationship with the

 Christian Reformed World Relief Committee has grown deeper and

 wider. CRWRC is now World Renew and they are now their primary

 partner in domestic disaster response. This opens up many

 opportunities to RCA members as volunteers and allows them to

 respond both immediately and for the long term. World Renew is an

 organization that is greatly respected in the disaster response world,

 by both faith based organizations and governmental agencies.  This 

 special offering will be received on June 28.


HAVE YOU EVER CONSIDERED welcoming an international

 student into your home? You can bring the mission field to your own

 living room by hosting an international student who attends Calvin

 Christian High School. We are looking for one or two host families

 for the upcoming academic year to host a boy from Thailand and/or

 China. We welcome host families who have no kids, young kids, high

 school kids, and empty nesters! Training, ongoing support, and a

 monthly stipend are provided so it will not cost you anything

 financially, just time and love!  For more information contact Rachel
