Monday, 26 August 2019

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. Delaney finishes off the week of blog posts for us...

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...

Making The Most Of Summer Rhythms

  • By Carolyn Wiebe
Thursday, 01 August 2019

Summers for school age families are both glorious and painful. I start looking forward to summer break in April. In May I start dragging my feet for all things school related and in June I’m downright negligent. So the first day of summer break can’t come fast enough for me as I dream about the slow mornings, the freedom for impromptu picnics or explorations, the beach time, family road trips, and tired sun kissed children falling into bed in the evenings...

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

Tuesday, 06 August 2019

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...

Orange You Glad You Went?

At the beginning of May, I had to privilege to go to the 2019 Orange Conference in Atlanta, Georgia! “Orange” is the curriculum my church uses for the kids ministries, small groups, training leaders and volunteers, outlining family services and so much more. The conference was an opportunity for me to learn more about the curriculum I use with the preschoolers on a Sunday morning and the material I will use in the summer as an intern. It was also a chance to spend time with God and learn more in regards to what I am passionate about! I went with my mom and two other amazing women...

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.
