Monday, 29 January 2018

On Dec 1, 2017 SBC kicked off the Christmas season by hosting our very first Jingle Jam, the BIG Give……and it was FANTASTIC!

What better way to encourage and inspire our friends, families and community to go BIG with the idea of generosity and to celebrate God’s greatest gift, than with coming together to experience a community wide Christmas party with live music, dancing, super fun games, great food and really, really funny people...

Family Rhythm Check Up

January has arrived. All my attempts to railroad it did not stop it from arriving. Christmas break is coming to an end. No more sleeping in, no more food grazing all day, no more jammies all day, no more Netflix marathons. It is time to eat vegetables again, time to know what day it actually is, time to get feeding, cleaning, transporting kids again.

At Summerland Baptist Church, we recognize that home is the primary place where children’s spiritual growth is nurtured. The goals of Faith at Home events are to support and empower families to be effective in training and teaching their children about Christ. We do this in three ways: by equipping, encouraging, and helping create a shared faith experience...

Years ago, under the direction of Sue Julien and Pam Borchert, the SBC Children & Families team went through the process of creating a mission statement.

Our Shine Christmas Party

Excited girls in cozy pajamas.

The smell of cookies baking.

A cozy fireplace crackling (on a tv screen) and Christmas music playing in the background.

This was the setting for our Shine girls' Christmas party. Our smiling volunteers, dressed in an array of Christmas sweaters, flannel pjs, and festive (aka gaudy) flashing Christmas jewelry welcomed the girls in from the cold. And best of all, the Christmas tree was practically drowning in presents...

On November 8 the playschool classes filled boxes for Operation Christmas Child.

These little ones have very big hearts.

We planned on filling 2 boxes, but that quickly turned into 4 boxes!!!

The playschool kids really got into it with one little one offering some pieces of Kleenex from his pocket...

3:00PM Friday: Yay!! It's here, family camp weekend; my girls and I look forward to this all year. A chance to just get away and spend time with our church family. So, we rush home after work and school to get ready to go. I am feeling so disorganized this week; I work at Summerland Secondary School so it was back to work for me as well as back to school for Kailee and Mackenzie and it's been hard to get back into the routine!

Even Better... Together!

Over the 2016/17 ministry season, 22 young families along with 22 sponsoring couples or singles enriched each others’ lives by connecting through celebrated birthdays, attending sports events and games, assisting with shopping days, transporting kids to events, babysitting so mom and dad could go out on a date night, praying for each other, dinners/picnics/games nights and many other forms of connection. These points of contact helped to encourage and assist the young families as well as to enrich the older sponsoring couples and singles as they ‘shared life’ with each other...

Monday, 17 July 2017

Ah, the Red Carpet Event for Middle School girls. One of my favourite events of the year that we do for our kids. This year was the second annual event. I know that after last year, there was the immediate thought, “We have to do this again”, and I can tell you that again after this year, we all had that very same thought again...

At SBC we love and welcome kids and we hope it shows. Whether your kids are 2 weeks old or graduating high school, we consider it a privilege and responsibility to have them entrusted to us for any of our events.

Our Sparks girl’s club is an opportunity to spend time with the girls from our church family as well as the community. Every year a huge highlight for both the girls and us as leaders is Father Daughter night and this year was no exception...
