Kenya 2018

Kenya Missions Trip 2018

Five Points Community Church is sending a team of 21 to minister to AIDS-affected children and their families in Kenya, Africa.  The team will be ministering to six Care Point mission outposts and will be hosting a family camp for three days and a worship service on Sunday.  The team will be teaching about Jesus from Genesis to Revelation and will be providing crafts, skits, activities and games to point the children God-ward.  The ages of the children are 5-18 years old.  There will also be an adult teaching to coincide with the children's ministries.  Most of the children we will be presenting to have never been exposed to the gospel so this is a wonderful opportunity.  Please be in prayer for the team as they prepare for this trip in August. Pray that God will be glorified. 

There is a great need for supplies to run the camp and in addition to  your prayers the team asks that you consider how you might assist in a practical way.  Please look through the signup to see if there are items that you (and your family) might assist with.  

There are suggested places to purchase some of the items but if you find better prices elsewhere please use those!  If you are willing to donate parts of an item (for example 3 dozen vs 6 dozen of a request) that is great.  Please let Wendy or Evelyn know so we can adjust the needed amount left to reflect that.  Before signing up please confirm the number of items you'll donate (some may indicate 5 needed - but if the link is followed it may be priced by the dozen so would be a total of 60.  There's no pressure to purchase all - ex.  soccer balls (you might buy only 1 or 2 so let us know :)  Everything helps!!!

Please have all signed items to Wendy Greger by July 8, 2018.  There will be a table setup in the church hallway to drop supplies off for the month of June as well.  Thank you!

If there are questions please email Wendy Greger at [email protected] text: 248-701-9283 or Evelyn Van Sloten at [email protected] text: 248.766.5662  Thank you!
