3:00PM Friday: Yay!! It's here, family camp weekend; my girls and I look forward to this all year. A chance to just get away and spend time with our church family. So, we rush home after work and school to get ready to go. I am feeling so disorganized this week; I work at Summerland Secondary School so it was back to work for me as well as back to school for Kailee and Mackenzie and it's been hard to get back into the routine!

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...

Understanding Poverty

Poverty. It is difficult for many to really understand the reality of poverty in 3rd world countries. It is hard for us to even understand the concept and most often we can find ourselves redefining it because of our own worldview and experience. Poverty is a complicated and diverse issue that is hard to explain to adults, never mind 50+ middle schoolers and high schoolers...

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...

When I boarded my plane to the Okanagan back in May, I had no idea what exciting opportunities my summer would hold here at SBC. Now that my internship is coming to an end, I would like to share some of the things I’ve been involved with this summer.

Sports camp was very successful again this summer! We had just under 40 youth come out to the week long camp that included sports and activities like basketball, soccer, football, capture the flag, slip and slide baseball and a beach day!!

A huge thank you to our summer interns (Katie, Meg, Cory and Bailey) who planned and ran this event with excellence and excitement!. They took on the lions share of the planning and execution and I couldn’t have been prouder of them...

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.

Sunday Mornings

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.

Summer Games!

  • By Rebecca Penner
Tuesday, 13 September 2016

In the first week of August, the field at Glenfir was transformed into an Olympic playing field, filled with middle school youth from our church and wider community. Campers at SBC’s Summer Games camp were divided into four teams who competed throughout the week in a variety of events which included soccer, road hockey and capture the flag. Using sports as a launching point, we also hosted devotions, called “Coaches’ Corners”, talking about what it means to follow Christ and discussing sportsmanship, courage, perseverance and God’s love. It was a fantastic week and I’m sure that many of our youth are looking forward to participating again next year!
