Fresh Perspective

  • Pastor Del Riemer
Thursday, 16 May 2019

How does God get your attention?

For me, it is often through a new environment, unique venue, uncommon activity, fresh perspective or in the midst of a personal challenge. The dictionary definition of the word training is: "Activity leading to skilled behaviour". So, with that preface, how are you doing in developing your own 'skilled behaviour' and thinking? We know that the fear of God is the beginning of wisdom, but how is God getting your attention?

Mexico Highlights Part 2

Thursday, 02 May 2019

I got the opportunity to go to VBS all three days, and I was able to connect with so many kids and to work one on one. Getting the chance to make a difference in these kids lives made me forget about my worries back home, and to not worry about the little things. This trip taught me a lot about God, friendships and what we have back home, we shouldn't take for granted. I recommend this trip for anyone who was the chance to go, because you won't have any other experience like this one...

Mexico 2019 Highlights

Thursday, 11 April 2019

During Spring Break, 39 youth and adults headed to San Quintin, Mexico to serve, build, teach and love. Here are the highlights from a few of our team members...

Going to Mexico was such an amazing experience yet again. I had the opportunity to go to San Quintin two years ago as well as this year. Going back this year was a lot different than the first time I went for many reasons. I got to try so many things including teaching CPR and First Aid at some local middle schools and high schools...

One Piece of the Puzzle

  • By Pastor Del Riemer
Monday, 18 March 2019

Have you ever felt insignificant or disconnected from people or a group? Imagine if you were no longer able to serve, participate in, or even attend meetings, fellowship gatherings, services, celebrations and events which had been a large part of your life in the past. How would you feel? Useless? Isolated? Lonely? Forgotten? This disconnect can happen to any of us and can be because of failing health, age, loss of mobility, loss of a driver’s license, or relocation...

Transformational Leadership in a Consumer Age

  • By Pastor Jack Borchert
Thursday, 28 February 2019

The dream of a comfortable, well-furnished home, recent model cars, offshore vacations; these were all within sight following Robert and Valerie’s graduation. They entered the workforce and their jobs provided them with the kind of income they needed to live very comfortably. This bright dream started to become their cloudy nightmare when Valerie’s job was “rationalized”. Gone were the two incomes, gone were the plans for vacations, further home furnishings, one of the cars. In fact, the dark and gloomy nightmare became a reality when Robert and Valerie were forced into personal bankruptcy...

At Shine this year our theme is Treasures and we’ve had so much fun exploring a variety of treasures throughout the year. We started it off with having a rockhounding group come from Kelowna to do a presentation and show us their phenomenal collection. They brought out 15 boxes of amazing rocks they’ve found over the years...

Whatever You Do

Did you know that every Tuesday afternoon, 4 - 8 ladies converge on the SBC Fireside Room and set up tables, bandage rollers, ironing boards and knitting stations to produce a vast variety of items for use in third world countries? This ministry is called ‘Ministry Crafts’ and it has been functioning here at SBC for over 20 years...

Lee's Adventure

  • By Pastor Lee
Saturday, 18 May 2019

I have always wanted to be a world traveller. Between friends that have travelled and movies and T.V. shows, I have longed to see the Pyramids, the Eiffel Tower, and the African plains in person, up close, and see them with my own two eyes. I never expected however that I would be able to see these places on the same trip, but here we are. Since I have had many people ask questions about the trip, I thought it would be wise to write a blog on the adventure I am about to take. Here is my itinerary…

Spring Update - Mercy Tech Mission

  • By Rick Cogbill
Monday, 22 April 2019

Judging by the wear on my suitcase and the proliferation of stamps in my passport, a lot has happened since my last mission update in October 2018. Time does fly.

In November, it was 10 days in the Baja with veteran volunteer instructor Todd Green for another round of mechanics training at Los Olivos, the One Life One Chance mission base in San Quintin. We also began looking at possible expansion ideas for the program in Mexico, as we would like to see more students taking advantage of the training we offer...

The Best

  • By Wendy Nixon
Wednesday, 03 April 2019

Well I think we can all agree that it was a looong winter. One of the wonderful things about working with preschoolers is they never complain about the weather.

We made every snow craft possible. We painted snow, made snowflake hand puppets, snowman names, made edible snowmen from popcorn and marshmallows. We sang about snow and played in snow centres. It was a lot of snowy fun.

We had 18 couples sign up for Valentine’s Date Night in a Box. Each couple received a box that contained goodies such as Valentines Day cards, chocolates, conversation questions, tattoos and more. Below are the instructions each couple received and some pictures for you to enjoy...

Living Supernaturally - Empathy

  • By Pastor Jason Johnson
Thursday, 07 February 2019

As we walk through our series on the book of Colossians, we come to where Paul writes about personal feelings for all the believers in Colossae. He starts out in verse 1:24 by saying something completely crazy: “I am glad when I suffer for you". Yes, you read that right… glad. Now how on earth is that possible for someone to be glad for suffering?? Well, this is one of the things that makes the Christian life supernatural...
