Time to Jingle Jam!

  • By Brin Young
Wednesday, 18 December 2019

Have you ever been to Jingle Jam? This year was Summerland Baptist Church’s third year hosting Jingle Jam. It’s a Christmas party big enough for the whole family! There’s interactive games, prizes, lessons, jokes, food, and so much Christmas cheer! Jingle Jam 2019 brought many fun surprises. My favourite part of Jingle Jam this year was that Grover was part of the show! Super Grover has joined SBC for several events over the years. He often shows up at Camp SBC! Grover and Stefan taught us about joy this year, and how you can have joy all year round. If you’ve never experienced Jingle Jam, I highly suggest you check it out in the years to come...

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...

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.

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

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...

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...
