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...

Tribes, Shelves & Magnifying Glasses

  • By Brin Young
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...

Mexico Highlights Part 2

Thursday, 02 May 2019

I got the opportunity to go to VBS all three days, and I was able to connect with so many kids and to work one on one. Getting the chance to make a difference in these kids lives made me forget about my worries back home, and to not worry about the little things. This trip taught me a lot about God, friendships and what we have back home, we shouldn't take for granted. I recommend this trip for anyone who was the chance to go, because you won't have any other experience like this one...

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?

Creativity Anyone?

  • By Christine Van Bergeyk
Tuesday, 13 August 2019

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...

Reminiscing About Ignite

  • By Tianna Riemer
Thursday, 13 June 2019

At Ignite this year, we’ve played ridiculous games, celebrated holidays, been part of a mission trip and grown. Of these things, the most unique to this year is the growth. In what ways have we grown you ask? Let me count the ways:

1. More Volunteers! At the beginning of the school year we had some fresh faces join us as volunteers. These individuals consistently showed up to connect, learn and have fun with our high schoolers. I am convinced that this is the main reason for our other areas of growth...

Mexico 2019 Highlights

Thursday, 11 April 2019

During Spring Break, 39 youth and adults headed to San Quintin, Mexico to serve, build, teach and love. Here are the highlights from a few of our team members...

Going to Mexico was such an amazing experience yet again. I had the opportunity to go to San Quintin two years ago as well as this year. Going back this year was a lot different than the first time I went for many reasons. I got to try so many things including teaching CPR and First Aid at some local middle schools and high schools...

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...

Equipping for the Future

Thursday, 01 November 2018

Our youth department is a big fan of the Canadian Youth Workers Conference. Eight of them joined together with all kinds of youth workers from the BC interior, on October 26 & 27 for the first of eight stops across Canada. They all found it both inspiring and applicable. Parts of this conference are highly collaborative and they even had the chance to share about what God is doing in Summerland a few times!
