We've been hearing about how to live out our faith in community this last little while, and now we've got the chance to get practical!

We'll need between 30-50 volunteers to make this event a success, so mark the date on your calendars now and join us that Sunday for some service in action!

Have you volunteered your time and talent in our church over the past year? Are you currently a member of a crew, team or group that serves the church?

From ministry to moving gear to making lunches to making art, it's been an amazing season of life together, and we'd love to thank you in person, and share a meal with you!

Join the staff and leadership team on Sunday, May 4th for a delicious bbq lunch following the Sunday service.

We really look forward to seeing you there and celebrating with you, as this community is made up of so many amazing volunteers and our church team is deeply grateful for all of your service and love and time given so graciously and freely. 

Please RSVP with your name and area of service/project/event/crew:

Sarah Kift

And, if you're not yet a volunteer, but would like to be, please get in touch with us to join one of our many crews or areas of ministry. Your talent and time are always needed and appreciated. 

We could also use a hand for the BBQ if you'd like to help out - we want our volunteers to be relaxed and not have to work that day, so if you've been thinking about volunteering, make the BBQ your first foray into community life and service together!

Call Sarah (604-732-557) to sign up to help. 

Make a meal for our latest crop of babies and their families!

 

The baby boom continues!

A baby changes everything, especially when you have little ones already and we want to help two of our famliies, the Barrys and the Hettlers adjust to these new changes and enable them to spend precious time together, so "Church from the Hollywood" has put together these meal planners so you can bless them with a meal during this transition. 

For The Hettlers: (Steven, Loralie and family)

The day is quickly approaching for us to welcome into the world baby Hettler #3!

I am sure you all share my excitement and joy for the whole family too, especially the girls as they will now be a BIG, BIG sister and BIG sister (that is how it was first described in our house).
You will be feeding 2 adults and 2 children. 

If you could kindly drop the meals to their home around 5pm, and please understand their need for quiet rest and sleep. 

Thank you so much for your love and support for this amazing family. We wait with anticipation for the safe and joyful arrival!!!
