Something for Everyone!

Hello, Friends! We are inviting you to an AWESOME day of fun at Twin Oaks Church, 22333 King Road, Woodhaven, MI 48183 this Saturday, January 22nd. Google it! The church is easily accessible from Telegraph, I-275 and I-75. The event is a fundraiser to benefit a mission trip to Rapha House in Cambodia for friends in our church. Rapha House exists to love, rescue, and heal children who have been rescued out of slavery and sexual exploitation. Operating as a 501(c)3, Rapha House began in 2003 to permeate cultures with love that heals and leads to restoration. Rapha House does this by providing safehomes and aftercare programs for young girls who have been rescued out of slavery and exploitative situations. All Rapha House homes are currently located in Southeast Asia, with the goal of expanding globally. As a mother of 3 girls, this agency has been dear to our hearts. Our friends are planning a mission trip to assist in Rapha House's goals. We are planning this fundraiser to help them get out of here!!! Here are some of the fun things you can do:

Basketball Clinic (all ability levels): The time for 7-9 year old boys and girls is 9am-1pm. 10-12 year old boys and girls will play from 1:30-5:30. The coaches are awesome and kids have a BLAST (and get really tired)! Suggested donation: $20 (we can make a deal if you are bringing in multiple kids!) Bring a white shirt and a colored shirt for scrimages.

Scrapbooking Day!! Bring your supplies and hang out in the Scrapbooking room with friends you can bring or meet while you're there. You could bring your quilting project, too! Babysitting will be provided for those kids too young for the basketball clinic. Suggested donation: $5 per hour for babysitting

Music lessons: Is your child thinking about playing a new instrument? Does he/she need a lesson on the instrument they currently play? Bailey Buchbinder, award winning musician and composer will be available for lessons. Instruments available for "trying on": flute, clarinet, trumpet, french horn, snare drum, tuba, violin, and piano (keyboard). All ages!! Suggested donation: $5 for the "try on", $10 for a 30 minute lesson. While not busy, Bailey will also be playing in the lobby for your entertainment.

classes available: (freewill donation of your choice) Lacking support from family members on your decision to homeschool? Do you need some affirmation that you are doing the right thing for your children by homeschooling them? At 9:30 and again at 2pm, Bring the doubters and come listen to 21 year old Ayla Eichenhofer, homeschooled since birth and a recent college graduate (with high honors), talk about her experience with homeschooling, how she handled living in the dorm at a public university in Kentucky, and how she feels homeschooling prepared her for life and her future career! There will be a question and answer period following her talk. You can even ask her, "How did you feel about missing the prom?"

Tired of asking yourself, "What's for dinner?" At 11am and 3:30pm, come to our Menu Planning Workshop!! Bring your recipe box and/or favorite cookbooks and walk away with a month's worth of inexpensive and healthy planned meals.

At noon and 4:30pm, Kim Watt, homeschooling Christian mom, will discuss biblical parenting and be available for a question and answer time.

There really is something for everyone! Come for the whole day or only an hour. Support our missionaries, support the Rapha girls, and be a part of something BIG for a change! Questions? Contact Dawn Buchbinder,, 734-782-2761

Forward this to EVERYBODY
