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...

One of the best ways to show up is to understand the six things every kid and teenager needs.

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?

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...
