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...

Dad's and Sparks - Better Together!

  • By Carolyn Wiebe
Thursday, 04 May 2017

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)...

My Bible Faith at Home Event

Back in October we had our Grade Three ‘My Bible’ Faith At Home Event. What a special day for our grade three’s. We had a great morning games, activities and of course good food. The hit of the morning for the kids was playing sword drill games with their parents and looking up Bible verses...

Courage - what is it?

That was our lesson in Spudz on October 20. With 38 boys ranging from grades 1 to 5, we learned that courage is being brave enough to do what you should, even when you are afraid...

Family Camp: God is Good!

Monday, 03 October 2016

So busy packing and getting ready... can't believe a whole year has gone by already, and we're gearing up for another Family Camp. I'm checking my list to make sure that everything is packed – although a Walmart is close by if anything major is left behind. The boys are so excited to go, they are actually volunteering...

Have a Heart!

Monday, 10 April 2017

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

  • By Stephanie Erdt
Friday, 16 December 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!

Sunday Mornings

  • By Pastor Lee Young
Wednesday, 23 November 2016

I wear many hats as a youth pastor here at Summerland Baptist church. It just comes with the territory. I am a worship leader, youth pastor, mentor, friend, preacher, teacher, taxi driver, and most importantly; a husband and father. Whenever I am asked to write blog post I always seem to attack it from the youth pastor perspective and to be fair, that is appropriate. Today I would like to share from a husband and father perspective, understanding I can never really take off the youth pastor hat… even if I tried.

Precious Preschoolers

Recently I ordered a book Peter's Perfect Prayer Place. In the book, Peter wants to find the perfect place to pray, just like the room his mother has. He tries out many locations only to realize that God is in ALL OF THEM! What?!!! He hears us wherever we are?!

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

Sunday Services: 9:00 & 11:00 am
