Church fun day to raise money for youth trip

An Ulta-Mega-Mission-Extravaganza event for youths is being staged Saturday on Pedro Castle Road by the Cayman Islands Baptist Church.

The event, to raise money for mission trips to Orlando, Florida and to Cuba this summer, runs from 7 a.m. until 4 p.m.

“The high school youths are raising the funds toward their X-Fuge On Mission trip on July 6-10 to Orlando, Florida, and the young adult group for a mission trip to Cuba,” said the church’s associate pastor, Mike Irby. While in Florida, he said, the youths will assist with children’s ministries in the Orlando area as well as enjoy Bible studies and group worship, and in Cuba with the sports ministries.

“These are great opportunities to impact young people’s lives that can make a difference in building a “Community of Christ’s Love” here in the Cayman Islands. It is our hope that these young people will return with a vision to help and serve others at home,” said Pastor Irby.

Among the day’s activities are a free car wash by sponsors; a silent auction and garage sale; a prayer station; food; and a free bouncy castle under adult supervision.
