Mission Statement: “To create an environment where young people can gather to share scripture for spiritual growth, to share time and talent for personal growth and to share each others company to create community”
POWERED BY CHRIST was born from the idea that teenagers after high school don't necessarily have a place in church. They have already been Confirmed, they can't participate with the Youth Group, they have to juggle college life, work, home life and many times there seems to be no time for God.
And so, Powered By Christ (PBC) Young Adults group was born and hence our Mission Statement stated above.
World Youth Day 2013 Committe
This group of people have been working diligently trying to raise funds for the young people to travel to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil for the next World Youth Day. Usually World Youth Day (WYD) takes place every three years. This time around, however, it was scheduled for two years from the previous WYD 2011 in Spain.
This has made fundraising a bit more difficult because of the short time period. Despite this fact, the groups focus is to make it to Brazil. So here is a short list of what the group is doing to meet their goal.
Monthly breakfast on the third Sunday of every month
A raffle of a 2012 Chevy Cruze - $50 per ticket
Laughlin Turnarounds: Next one is scheduled for July
More activities to be planned for the fall
WYD is the same type of activity everytime. But the experience that each individual lives is VERY different each time. For many this is a "once in a lifetime" experience. It is also probably the only time many of them will travel out of the country. Whatever the reason is that these young people want to participate in this event, no doubt this is something they will never forget.
So, we ask you to please support these events if possible. Or, if you would like to simply make a donation you can make a check out to St. Louis Church with WYD 2013 in the memo line. You can mail it to: 68633 C Street, Cathedral City, CA 92234 - Attn: Rosie Luna. Your donation is 100% tax deductible.
As always, thank you for your incredible continued support. May God bless you and your families abundantly.
