Mexico 2017 - Life Changing

  • By Colin and Danielle
Monday, 03 April 2017

What a rollercoaster of emotions it was today for the Mexico team and me. We all felt sadness at having to leave such a wonderful experience in the rear-view mirror but also felt great joy at the thought of seeing our families and friends again. To top it all off...

Greetings from Mexico!

The ministry is finally underway and the travel is now behind us. We had uneventful airport stops, flights and border crossings. Things went very smoothly and we arrived in San Diego for our first day! We had the chance to swim in the ocean, walk the beach, go for seafood and get to bed early for a great sleep...

Connection Without Obligation

  • By Pastor Del Riemer
Tuesday, 14 March 2017

As passionate followers of Jesus, it is both our responsibility as well as our joy to introduce people to the same hope, freedom, joy and REST that we have found in His transforming presence in our lives. Now, I don't know about you, but I have found myself many times taking that passion and manipulating it into a misguided quest that results in repelling, rather than drawing, others to faith and "Life"...

Can We Be Sure?

  • Pastor Larry Schram
Monday, 27 February 2017

Is it possible to really be certain about anything these days? Science reports, news sources, public leaders and historical records are openly challenged at every turn. Christian leaders who historically were charged with reminding people about some certainties are routinely mocked by the larger culture and regularly labeled as untrustworthy false teachers by fellow Christians. Even long standing certainties like gender identification are now apparently in flux leaving us in a place where we can no longer even be sure if someone is male or female. In this unparalleled time of uncertainty, skepticism and questioning, certainty about anything has clearly fallen to an all time low...

The Summerland Refugee Sponsorship Group is so pleased that the two families that we have been assisting in resettlement are now both proud owners of minivans! Money was generously donated by churches, businesses, and individuals within our community to aid in driving lessons, new tires and repairs to the vehicles in order to make them road worthy.

Jesus is Calling

Monday, 24 April 2017

My friends, Jesus is calling.

In a way that I cannot deny, Jesus has called me to embrace a new ministry role and a new beginning in a new location. We did not seek this call and therefore repeatedly tested it with the Lord seeking confirmation. He provided that confirmation with incredible clarity and consistency...

Have a Heart!

Every year, on the Sunday before Valentine’s Day, SBC hangs heart-shaped prayer requests that have been printed out by our SBC Kids and hung from the ceiling in the foyer. Our church foyer looks beautiful and seeing the hearts reminds us to love and to pray for the kids God has given to our church family...

Closing the Gap

Greetings from Mexico...

We are are all running full blast now and seeing much accomplished. The house builds are both progressing rapidly and it looks like we will be finished them without any major difficulty. It is great to have experience in construction and teamwork...

On Sunday, February 12 we had a Church Wide Faith at Home event: Let Your Light Shine. It included all SBC Church family members; the young, the old and the in-between. Together we worshiped and learned how to let our lights shine.

Relentless Giving

  • By Pastor Jack Borchert
Monday, 20 February 2017

Two weeks ago I had the honour of speaking at two funerals, one for our beloved Dorothy Miller who has been a member of our Summerland Baptist church family for many many years, and another for a dear lady at the church where we served in Kelowna. Both of these women lived well into their 90’s and left such a wonderful legacy of love, kindness, faithfulness, gentleness, joy, patience and peace...
