Our Summer Interns blew us away with their ability to plan, manage, work hard and more importantly connect with and invest in our children and youth. What a blessing they have been to us as staff and to the adults, kids and youth they worked along side. We thought you'd enjoy hearing about what the summer meant to them, so this week we will publish a blog post each day written by each of our interns. Next up, Zack!

The word Partnership is defined in the dictionary as: the state or condition of being in association for joint interest”
We at Summerland Baptist Church are committed to partnering with parents, grandparents and individuals for the purpose of passing on a legacy of life and truth from one generation to the next. This obviously involves a wide demographic of people who through association, join together to pursue a common interest or goal. That goal is to let the Light of the World (Jesus: John 8:12) shine through all of us to illuminate a dark culture and world...

I believe that one of the worst feelings in the world loneliness. However, the catch about most feelings is that there are different ways they present themselves. Today my youngest brother came to find our mom because he was lonely. He wasn’t actually home alone, but he needed mom because she is the person who makes him feel especially loved and important. Moms are good at that...

On June 14, a group of 9 motorcycle enthusiasts from BC and Alberta (but based out of Summerland Baptist Church, calling themselves ‘Road Salt Riders’ (Collosians 4:5-6)) embarked on a 6300 km journey through 6 States to their destination in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado.

Music was created by Jesus when He gave the angels voice and the capacity to praise God. (Psalm 103:20, Psalm 148:2, Revelations 5:11, Romans 11:36). Twenty-nine times in scripture we are instructed to ‘Sing to the Lord’. At Summerland Baptist Church, we have taken this direction seriously and have found countless ways to take a message of truth, praise and love to our community and culture. We have done this through our Sunday morning music teams, through our choirs and ensembles (Hope Road Community Gospel Choir, The Okanagan Christian Men’s Choir, The Okanagan Tenors, Back Porch Gospel and Groundswell), through sharing music and messages every 5 weeks at the Extended Care facility and Summerland Seniors Village, through the Hymn Sing shared at our Eyes On Truth Bible study, through music and singing at Zia’s when honoring our dear ‘shut-in’ seniors, and through small ensembles who offered songs of encouragement at services, funerals and events...
