Beach Retreat Will Be Here Before You Know It.

The tradition continues!  BCM is heading back to Destin, Florida for a relaxing few days at the beach before the realities of the fall semester sink in.  And you’re gonna love this beach house.  It’s in the Hollywood Community of Frangista Beach, Destin.  We’ve got our own HUGE private pool, steps to the beach, and it’s just really nice all around.

We’ll be hanging out in the ocean, playing on the beach, watching movies and of course playing spike ball in the sand!  You don’t want to miss out on enjoying the company of your (new or old) BCM family.  And on Friday, we all help new Lee students move into the dorms….yep, that’s part of the deal…but it’s a ton of fun too.  And you’ll be able to show off your nice new tan.

Here’s the details:

Nicaragua Mission Trip 2018

Over the past 7 years, the Cleveland BCM has been sending students on mission to Granada, Nicaragua.  Nearly 60 students from Lee and CSCC have made the trip, many of them going more than once.  Working with missionaries Eric and Melissa Weber, the teams engage in village evangelism, church construction, feeding programs and other ministries.

This year, we are sending a team of 10 students to serve May 14-23.  Each student is responsible for raising their own support of nearly $1,100.  They are also working to raise money to cover 42 food boxes we use in our village evangelism efforts as well as purchasing supplies for church construction.

Would you consider helping these students as they seek to share the good news with families across Granada?

Your donations are tax deductible and will go directly to these programs in Nicaragua.

You can easily click one of the items below or the custom amount link to give even more 🙂

$20 purchases 1 food/supply box for a family in need.

$60 purchases 3 food/supply boxes for families in need.

$100 purchases 5 food/supply boxes for families in need

Thank you so much for supporting our efforts to reach these incredible people that so many of us have come to love over the years.
