An Eager Anticipation

  • By Pastor Jason Johnson
Monday, 18 November 2019

The never ending question of Christmas décor and when do we put up the tree and lights seems as debated as whether or not pineapple is a legit pizza topping.

I know that not everyone gets into Christmas as early as we do in the Johnson home. We always wait till after our local Remembrance Day ceremony has concluded which we attend every year...

Made Known

Miscarriage, stillbirth, infant loss, abortion, and infertility are common place tragedies. The grief is often misunderstood, undervalued, and unsupported...

Jump Sunday

Wednesday, 09 October 2019

On September 22 we celebrated Jump Sunday. This is the day we celebrate all our SBC Kids and SBC Youth who are jumping into the next phase of our ministry. Why do we have a Sunday like this and why do we offer such different things for the different groups of kids here at SBC? Before we explain our goals and strategy, we need to define what we mean when we say the word phase.

Summer Reflections - Zack

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!

Parenting & Partnerships

  • By Pastor Del Riemer
Friday, 23 August 2019

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...

Tribes, Shelves & Magnifying Glasses

  • By Brin Young

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...

Introducing the Heighs

Hi, everybody. I am Dustin and I am going to be your new Youth Pastor! Our family is so excited about that. We can’t wait!

Some of you know us and some don’t. But even if you do know us it’s been 11 years since we lived in Summerland. So, maybe you changed Ben’s diaper but you’ll be shocked to hear that he doesn’t wear those anymore. He hates them. And Meg doesn’t have tantrums anymore, she just beats on me to help her deal with stress. And Liv isn’t a little squishable baby, she’s super tall! Seriously. She’s taller than Christy. And we now have a Jude. So, I’d like to take a minute to introduce our family...

Learning Your Smart Phone

  • By Pastor Lee Young
Wednesday, 30 October 2019

The word smartphone can see like an oxymoron at times. If you are unable to use it or understand how it works, it can make you feel silly and not very smart. It was a privilege to teach a group of 28 adults how to understand and use their smartphones. To tackle this difficult task, I conscripted the experts in the field to hide the fact I am not an expert in smartphones at all.

Eight of our youth and volunteers took the time in small groups and individually to walk curious adults through the basic functions of their phone as well as answered the barrage of questions that followed...

Get Out!

  • By Pastor Del Riemer
Wednesday, 16 October 2019

In Psalms 34:8 it says to: “Taste and See that the Lord is good.” I think that for many of us, this is a very intentional and hard thing to fit into our lives. To ‘Taste’ we must find something to put in our mouths and then consider and compare the taste to other morsels that have crossed our taste buds. To ‘See’, we must choose to open our eyes and feast on the wonder and diversity of the world around us so that we can perceive and understand the goodness of the Lord...

Creativity Anyone?

  • By Christine Van Bergeyk
Tuesday, 13 August 2019

And he has filled him with the Spirit of God, with skill, with intelligence, with knowledge, and with all craftsmanship, to devise artistic designs, to work in gold and silver and bronze. Exodus 35:31-32

At the beginning of July, we offered a Creative Arts Camp here at SBC. We had just over 40 kids from SBC and our community come and play with us for 4 days, each having a chance to try a variety of different creative expressions – Dance, Musical theatre/storytelling, creative crafts and fine arts/watercolour...
