This special edition NewsBlast is being sent to you to promote our Conference-wide mission trip to Belize.  Our conference has a long history of short-term mission trips as our members have a desire to serve in our local communities, as well as internationally.  Our hope is that you help find young people that want to serve and that a mission experience would be beneficial for.  We have seen so many lives changed because of mission experiences.  

We also want to get groups to help finalize the assistance that we began with the Fort McMurry fire.  Help is desperately needed at the Edmonton Warehouse to finish by the end of November.  Please consider bringing your youth groups, young adult groups, pathfinder clubs, school groups, or any other group you can empower.  Together we can get this important work completed.  May God continue to bless you as we strive to put our hands and feet to work, serving others.

Cruise With A Mission
Cruise with a Mission exists as a catalyst for young adults to cultivate a transformative lifestyle of connecting with God and others, in the context of Christian community. Our goal is that young adults will renew their spiritual journeys during meaningful on-board presentations, discover meaningful community through group interactions, and explore the joy of helping others during our service projects . . .
