Summertime Outreach Opportunity

After an unexpected “time-out” due to COVID restrictions, we are again asking for contributions of swimsuits, towels, and flip-flops. These donations are for the children learning to swim at the Jackie Robinson YMCA.  

In October ‘21, we attended the groundbreaking ceremony for the newly-funded swim complex.  Historically, this area of San Diego has been underserved with regard to aquatic activities and opportunities. This is a community resource long overdue. Often swimmers had to be transported to pools in other areas of San Diego for lessons. 

Canyon View has been so generous in past years by providing needed support for children and teens learning to swim.  

YMCA groundbreakingBeginning on May 29, please drop off any of the three items: suits, flip-flops any/or towels in bins in the foyer. 

All sizes of swimsuits are needed: for ages 4-16, male and female.

On June 24, we plan to attend the ribbon-cutting/grand opening ceremony of this much anticipated aquatic center. We hope to deliver a full car-load of items for the Learn-to-Swim program 2022.

If you would like to participate by giving but would prefer we shop for you, we enjoy that opportunity and will be good stewards of you donations.

Thank you, in advance, for your interest in this outreach effort.

Bostonia Youth Rally

The Youth Rally is coming up! On February 18-20, there will be a youth rally at the Bostonia Church of Christ. Since it is local, here in San Diego, it will not be an overnight event, but it will be a multiple-day event (Friday, Saturday, and Sunday). The theme of the youth rally is “Be an Example,” and we will focus on studying 1 Timothy 4:12. This is a junior high through high school event. There will be several lessons, all from 1 Timothy 4:12. This rally will take place at the Bostonia Church of Christ.

The address is: 1244 Sumner Ave, El Cajon, CA, 92021.

I want to encourage all of you parents to get your children to this event. It will be a wonderful, spiritually uplifting event. Also, please ask your kids to invite family, friends, or anyone they see. Our youth need this, so let’s be sure to make it to this event. Thank you all for all you do!

Our new, beautiful kitchen is almost ready for all of us to use! However, there are several items we need to replenish in order to make the kitchen complete. We have set up a special registry on Amazon with the items we need. If you are interested in purchasing an item to donate to the church, you can click on this link: Remember to use AmazonSmile to earn funds for Canyon View at no charge to you. Follow the instructions when you go to and make Canyon View Church of Christ your charity.

Attention Blood Donors

t-shirt“Thanks” to all of you who visited the Blood Drive/Back-to-School/Swimsuit 
outreach display during the recent Ministry Fair.
This is a reminder to those who are regular blood donors with the San Diego Blood Bank.  
When you donate blood products, please remember to mention our congregational account. 
The designated code is CVCV 
Donors, the best opportunity for mentioning this code is while your iron count and temperature are being taken.
Canyon View members can utilize these “credits” when undergoing medical treatments that require blood products. 
We are hoping to schedule a Bloodmobile Drive near the Sprouts store on Clairemont Drive on a day between late November and early January 2022. 

Back to School Thank You!

Dear Canyon View Family,
Your generous responses to the Back-to-School outreach this year was overwhelming!
The bounty of supplies and backpacks was delivered to three schools: Carson, Linda Vista and Ross, along with Blue Bags of food. Each school greatly appreciate your continuing contributions. What an opportunity to serve local needs and develop community contacts on behalf of our body of believers!


The “Official” Back-to-School” Outreach 2021

Back to School SuppliesCanyon View members contributed generously to three elementary schools this Spring when schools slowly began to open for in-person instruction. The school district plans on reopening these schools fully in late August with strong safety measures in place. 

Currently, several stores like Target, WalMart and Staples are already promoting the sale of items needed for school. Beginning on July 25  the plastic boxes will again be in the foyer for any school supplies you may donate.  

Shopping with your own children/grandchildren can be a great way to introduce them to outreach giving and the awareness that not all families have the needed resources to provide supplies for their children.

We would be glad to shop for anyone who wishes to help with monetary donations given to Canyon View.

Your continuing generosity is appreciated.

WINGS (Women in God’s Service)

WINGSWINGS is the hospitality committee for our church family.  Each able woman who is a member at Canyon View is asked to be on one of our “WINGS Teams.”  Each team has two co-leaders and a minimum of four additional members.  Each WINGS Team is responsible for one activity at a time.  The more teams we have, the longer the time before each team needs to serve again.

WINGS is responsible for helping with functions at the building when the WHOLE church is involved.  These include potlucks, funerals, baby showers, and bridal showers.

If you are interested in helping or would like more information, please reach out to Estella in the church office ( to get in touch with one of the WINGS coordinators.

Holiday Food Bags

Our goal is not 100 food bags this year.  We will be happy with whatever we get, but our minimum is 40. Due to COVID-19, the schools are having to deliver the food bags to the homes, which is a lot of rewarding work for the staff, but fewer bags are better. The schools need food bags by Wednesday, December 9th. The military will get bags after the schools.

We are shopping every week so, if it is easier for you, we can use your contribution to do the shopping for you.

Christmas Food Bags

We are starting to collect for our Christmas food bags but with some differences this year. We will not have a special list for the season but we will appreciate it if you add some Christmas cookies or Christmas candy on top. You can add a Christmas decoration to the bag as we have traditionally done in the past years. Then, bring your bag to the office.
