The Best

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.

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...

Twas the 8th of December and all thru the church,
Every child had a smile, every angel a perch.
Pictures were taken with angel so bright
It reminded us of a star that first Christmas night.

Well our first month of Playschool has flown by. We are having fun learning together and getting to know each other.

October 31 (Halloween) was dress up day at Playschool. Who doesn’t love to dress up as a beautiful princess, rainbow dash pony or a fierce alligator or transformer for a day. What fun to make believe you have super powers or are the belle of a ball and twirl in a gown.

June 13 was the Summerland Playschool’s graduation celebration.

As we started making the playschooler’s scrapbooks a couple of weeks ago, (note to self to start them much earlier next year), I realized how much these precious playschoolers have grown...

2019 Family Plan

Wednesday, 02 January 2019

WELCOME TO A NEW YEAR. Yeah, we’re thinking the same thing—didn’t we just do this? 2019 is going to happen, whether you plan for it or not. But what if this next year didn’t just happen? What if you had a plan, some intentionality driving your times together? This activity is designed to help you do that. We want you to come up with a plan for your family, not ours, not someone else’s. But a plan that fits who your family is — what you like to do, who you want to be...

It's Just a Phase, So Don't Miss It

  • Pastor Lee Young

A phase is a time frame in a kid’s life when you can leverage distinctive opportunities to influence a kid’s future.

Every one of us can point to somebody who showed up to make a difference in the different phases of our life. And because someone showed up for us, we can show up for somebody who needs us now in whatever phase they’re in. One of the best ways to show up is to understand the six things every kid and teenager needs.

Our Amazing Summer Interns

Wednesday, 26 September 2018

SBC has been blessed over the last few years to have some amazing young people who come and work as summer interns. They serve tirelessly and pour into the lives of our children and youth. We recently touched base with them and asked a few questions. We thought you would be interested in their replies to these four questions:

1. What was your favourite part of being an intern at SBC?
2. What was the biggest thing you learned during your SBC internship?
3. What are you doing this Fall?
4. How can we continue to pray for you?

Better Together Includes... Who?

Wednesday, 27 June 2018

Many of you will know about our SBC ‘Better Together’ program which connects older people in our church family (empty nest couples and singles) with a young family with children. This initiative has been operating for 4 years now and currently we have 22 sponsorship connections which serve to enrich the young families by celebrating special events, looking after children so mom and dad can have a ‘date night’, mentorship, prayer, practical assistance and encouragement...

When Church and Family Collide

  • By Bree Young
Wednesday, 23 May 2018

We use the color ORANGE to illustrate the strategy we use here at Summerland Baptist Church.

We believe that all families matter.

Not just the family that
Is a married couple
With two or more biological children
Who never fight about finances
Have weekly family devotions
And teenagers who listen to worship music...
