Our Chapel History

RANCHO CALIFORNIA CHAPEL This little chapel began not only as a dream of one couple but also by the hand of God pushing and pulling that one couple, Dick and Kathy Dickinson, who came here in March 1999 to purchase a lot. They retired in May 1999 and took off traveling. When they purchased they noticed an old wooden cross on the mountain overlooking the resort and both commented to each other as they left that they felt God might have a work for them here. Their idea was to teach Bible Studies. God’s idea was Rancho California Chapel. The idea to have a church service here had been planted in their mind by a salesperson, however, the actual work for the service was not promoted by anyone. They actually started with 4 people, two of them were Dick and Kathy. Dick taught with a turned over milk crate and Kathy led prayer and singing by using a Bose radio and CDs. The chapel had rough beginnings with some voicing support but no help was given, others were underhanded in their objections and caused a lot of oppression for the chapel. However, God heard the prayers of Dick and Kathy to send just one couple who would be supportive of the ministry and that he did in 2004 when he sent numerous couples with various abilities to help with the vision. The first offering was taken in 2001 fall after a sweet young couple named Tammy and Drew Davis spoke and shared their desire to go to Newcastle, England to serve in ministry. We began taking an offering then and that was the beginning of God pouring out His blessings slowly on us. We then met Dr. Ana and Dr. Bill Moody who were considering giving up their practices in Fallbrook and going to China. This was in 2004 and once again we decided to support them on a monthly basis. By now we support ten missions: one local to our needy and poor and another to the our fighting men and women in Afghanistan and then six oversea missions and two others. We feel that because of the generosity of this chapel, God has abundantly poured out His blessings on us. Our founding pastor, Dr. Dick Dickinson, was taken home to be with his Lord on Nov. 21, 2009 after 2 ½ years of lung cancer. Now a new, well lit cross, stands on the mountain overlooking the resort in memory of Dick and in praise to God for His loving hand in the molding of this chapel here at Rancho California RV Resort.

the loose change gospel band

Hi Claude: I have a band in Washington State (The Loose Change Gospel Band) that plays for an outreach event each summer at the Omak Stampede Rodeo. Our music is a combination of bluegrass gospel, old-time, and Christian cowboy songs. This week we released our first CD, as a fundraiser for the Okanogan Christians in Action. I\\\'ve attached a fact sheet that describes the album and the Christians in Action. We\\\'re selling the album for $10 (or $12.97 for online sales), with all proceeds going to them in support of their ministry (community gospel outreach efforts and Christian radio). You can visit our website to read more about it, and to listen to some audio clips from the album: www.TheLooseChangeGospelBand.com I was wondering if the Rancho CA Chapel board would give me an opportunity to tell the chapel folks about the album, and encourage them to support this fund raising event. This could be by means of a Sunday morning announcement, or via email. I would be happy to donate a copy of the CD to the board for a more thorough review of the content. Thanks for considering this request, Kathy Kathy Peterson KJ Peterson Consulting 909-630-8279 www.kjpetersonconsulting.com
