Thank you for all you give to help us reach people around the globe. Thanks for keeping our doors open so that we can share the good news of Jesus to our community. Thanks for giving so that my staff and I can have jobs and care for our family. Whether it is $20,000 or $20 we are grateful. We feel so bless- ed to be able to do ministry with you.

Your Year End Gift
This year we would like the year end gift to go towards continuing the ministries in these three areas.
- This last year we did a series called, “The Art of Neighboring.” We would like to model good neighboring by being good neighbors to Marshall Middle School and giving the theater a makeover. The paint is old, the carpets tired, and the walls are peeling. We would like to give this gift to our school and for those of you who have made this church your home. Plus it would be great to be able to make a good first impression on our neighbors who are coming for the first time.
- As many of you know we have recently hired a new children’s director, Betsy Roy. Betsy has a vision to do a makeover of our children’s ministry area. This would include new signage, easy ups, decorations, and even a sound system so that our kids can do worship and games outside.
- Our missions ministry continues to grow. This year we are not only reaching Haiti, the Dominican Republic and Mexico but are increasing our reach to Belize with over 30 people committed to go. We are looking to raise some funds to defray costs so that more people can experience these life changing trips. We meet in a middle school but we have buildings all over the world. Can you help us raise more roofs in 2016?
If you are the kind of person who likes to make a year end contribution, please consider giving to Canyon Springs.
Your gift makes it possible for us to reach the Next One.
