Coachella Valley Mission Trip - July 11-15, 2016
Posted 5.05.2016
On July 11th through July 15th, we are heading out to a place where cultures clash and poverty is the norm. In the Coachella Valley, about an hour east of Palm Springs, during the hottest part of the year, we are partnering with Tesoro Ministries and using their cooling facility to host an Outreach/VBS for the local junior high aged students. Peninsula Community Church is sending the high school portion of Engage to create a week of unforgettable memories, exalting Christ, and developing relationships with students in a desire to have hearts turned to the goodness and glory of Jesus Christ. Tesoro Ministries will be providing a hands on discipleship program for all of those who commit their lives to Christ as a follow up, and we at PC...

Bombo Packing Signup
Posted 3.08.2016
Arrangements are moving forward for the 40’ container for Bombo (It should arrive the day after Easter….tough timing). But everything needs to be packed and inventoried BEFORE the container arrives. So we have set March 21,22 and 23 for our packing days. We will have all of the supplies available to box everything up — and we are looking for volunteers to do the packing and organizing. You can sign up HERE for a time slot to pack. We made two-hour shifts over three days. Pick a slot (or two) before they fill up. Serve the Lord with gladness! ...

Israel in October - With Pastor Jim & Christie
Posted 1.27.2016
For thousands of years, no place has been more precious to God’s children than the land of Israel. God used the land to shape the lives of His people in the Bible - and He does the same today.   Visiting Israel is an unforgettable, faith-maturing experience. As often as I’ve had the privilege to go, I always come back personally changed. Really, every time.   From the waters of Galilee to the winding streets of Jerusalem, you will explore the land of Abraham, David, Jesus and Paul. The goal is to increase your understanding of the Word of God and to draw closer to the God of the Word. You will forever read your Bible with greater insight as your appreciation for God&rsq...

Snow Day at the Preschool
Posted 1.21.2016
El Niño hits Peninsula. In a matter of hours, the effects of El Niño were felt at our preschool this morning, when two tons of snow dropped onto our property. Fortunately it all landed just so our preschoolers could enjoy a snow day today. Amazing how that happened. But, praise God for snow and the chance for children to play in it today at Peninsula. ...

Engaging with Tesoro Club in Mecca, CA
Posted 1.20.2016
On Friday, January 15, 13 of our senior high students and staff traveled the relatively short distance to Mecca, CA, deep in the Coachella Valley to minister to the children of migrant farmers.  We partnered with a ministry called “Tesoro Club” which means “treasure,” for that is how the kids are treated.   From the beginning our group from PCC broke up and ministered to kids from 6-0years old all the way to 13-years old, showing them the love of Christ through smiles, games, music, crazy dance, and even crazier jump houses.  A man accustomed to such things, Mr. J., brought his band and created a pirate theme around the gospel, giving a strong theatrical performance coupled ...

2016 Bombo Dates Change!
Posted 12.16.2015
News flash in from Uganda.  Because of the presidential elections next year in Uganda, the school schedule has changed (dramatically).  The "summer" break of three weeks has shifted to September.  Therefore, we will be unable to conduct our annual medical mission in August.  The dates set by Bombo Pentecostal Church are September 11-16, 2016.  Yes, that's a change for sure.  It will means some changes for us in 2016, but we shall see how God uses this for His glory. Perhaps this has helped your decision to join the Team one way or another.  Don't forget, all the details and applications are found ...
