Years ago, under the direction of Sue Julien and Pam Borchert, the SBC Children & Families team went through the process of creating a mission statement. We came to follow that we were a team that desired to, "Encourage and equip children and families to learn about and experience the love of God so they will become fully devoted followers of Christ"...

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...

Happy Birthday Jesus!

As I walked through the stores at the mall shortly after Christmas, I noticed that all signs of Christmas are gone and it's already long forgotten. Shelves once packed with ornaments, lights and wrapping paper are now replaced with Valentine’s Day cards, candy and chocolates. It always seems funny to me how quickly we rush to the next holiday, or fun event, to fill our time...

Angel Breakfast 2016

This year marks the 18th year of Angel Breakfast. My firstborn attended the very first one and I'm not sure if I have missed any since! Between attending with my own children, volunteering or being present as a staff member, I have always found a way to be involved! And the same is true for many volunteers. I received a few phones calls from people who had volunteered in the past... asking to be involved again! We cannot get enough of this day!

Even Better... Together!

Over the 2016/17 ministry season, 22 young families along with 22 sponsoring couples or singles enriched each others’ lives by connecting through celebrated birthdays, attending sports events and games, assisting with shopping days, transporting kids to events, babysitting so mom and dad could go out on a date night, praying for each other, dinners/picnics/games nights and many other forms of connection. These points of contact helped to encourage and assist the young families as well as to enrich the older sponsoring couples and singles as they ‘shared life’ with each other...

Ah, the Red Carpet Event for Middle School girls. One of my favourite events of the year that we do for our kids. This year was the second annual event. I know that after last year, there was the immediate thought, “We have to do this again”, and I can tell you that again after this year, we all had that very same thought again...

The Lord has been opening up doors for my family and I want to take a moment to give an update on my recovery over the last few months and to also fill you in our plans going forward...

At SBC we love and welcome kids and we hope it shows. Whether your kids are 2 weeks old or graduating high school, we consider it a privilege and responsibility to have them entrusted to us for any of our events.

Our Sparks girl’s club is an opportunity to spend time with the girls from our church family as well as the community. Every year a huge highlight for both the girls and us as leaders is Father Daughter night and this year was no exception...

Earlier this year Tammy wrote a blog post called Solving the Orange Mystery. This is part two. For our children's programs, SBC Kids Preschool and Elementary, Spark and Spudz, all follow Orange.

Orange is simple - it’s a strategy...

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.

Thanks Mortimer!

Over the Christmas season, I listened to an online sermon in which the speaker asked the audience, “which character in the Christmas story can you most relate to?” He went on to say that he identified most with Herod. That’s all I remember because I promptly fell asleep (it was bedtime)...

"Following Jesus Together: Reaching, Deepening, Restoring."
