Feeding Kids First

Hello, Canyon View!

Feeding Kids First is an organization in San Diego whose goal is to help children with food-deficit issues at home. Every weekend, there are thousands of children in San Diego County who go home and don’t know if they’ll get a meal before school comes back around on Monday.

There is a box in the foyer labeled, “Feeding Kids First,” for those who would like to make a food donation. The last day will be Sunday, June 3rd.

Feeding Kids First kindly requests nonperishable, individually packaged foods, such as oatmeal, macaroni and cheese, or fruit snacks. If you’re interested in helping, there will be an information sheet on the box with a more descriptive list of what the organization is looking for. Thank you for your help!


Brown Bag Christmas 2017

Canyon View will provide 100 bags of groceries to hungry community members as a gift from Jesus this season. The gift will help families have a holiday meal. Lists of food items and bags are available in the foyer. Please, make sure that no food item expiring before January 31, 2018 is placed in your bag.
1. Pick up 2 brown bags (for double bagging) and a food item list.
2. Give your bag a “holiday spirit” by decorating it in a fun and festive way.
3. Fill your doubled bag with the listed items.
4. Place your bag near the podium on or before SUNDAY, DECEMBER 10th.
5. For questions or to request a food bag, contact Sue Youngflesh, (619) 733-1373.
A $20 grocery gift card will be added to each bag before delivery so that recipients may purchase fresh items or meat. If you wish to contribute toward the gift cards, make a separate check out to the church (annotated “Christmas Gift
Card”) and put it in the offering plate OR place a check or cash in one of the “donation cans” located at the entrance.

MOPS – Mothers of PreSchoolers

MOPS stands for Mothers of Preschoolers, and by preschoolers we mean kiddos from birth through kindergarten. MOPS exists for you. Being a mom is beautiful and hard, and we get that sometimes you just need a safe space to breathe. A place to get some encouragement that what you are doing matters and to be reminded that you are important. We are all in this together.

MOPS offers moms (and moms-to-be!) the opportunity to:

Make friends who relate to you and be a part of a Christian community. We like to call it our tribe of women who meet together to laugh, cry and embrace the journey of motherhood.
Receive hope-filled insight through group discussions and speakers who know we’ve only had three hours of uninterrupted sleep last night so they better keep it interesting!
Create, imagine, and actually finish a project! Who doesn’t love an occasional Pinterest-y project?
Find fulfillment in looking beyond ourselves with occasional service projects.
Have your kiddos be part of a Christian based preschool style experience that they will love going back to. Look, we all love our kids, but let’s be honest: a little break now and then makes us want to be with them even more.

The Who, When, Where and How of Canyon View MOPS:

New to MOPS?
Still unsure about this ‘tribe’ of women we speak of?
Have a question for us?

We would love to answer your questions and get you connected with other moms.
Please send us an email at CanyonViewChurchMOPS@gmail.com and let us know what’s on your mind, and one of our leadership team members will get back to you as soon as the kiddos go down for a nap…



We are seeking loving arms to hold, play with and facilitate a lesson for little ones while their mommies take a break and get recharged to be even better moms. MOPS meets Thursdays, October through May. If you are available to help Thursdays from 9:30am to 12pm and have a heart for children, we would love to hear from you.
