SDBC's 60th Anniversary Plans Unveiled

main image

At the beginning of the year, we announced our plans to celebrate our 60th anniversary this year. South Delta Baptist Church was planted by Ladner Baptist Church sixty years ago, and the first service was held on October 25th, 1959. God has blessed us tremendously since then and we were able to enjoy His abounding grace and love. In order to share this love of Christ with our community, we made plans to bless the community as the Lord has blessed us.

This past Sunday, Pastors Paul and Jordan presented the plans for our 60th Anniversary Project. Watch the video below to hear all the details.

Being an Everyday Missionary This Summer Season

main image

The sun is beginning to shine brighter and the weather is becoming much warmer, signalling the start of summer! That means time to start planning BBQ's, outdoor adventures, and days at the pool. Summer is a great season to take advantage of the weather and spend time with friends and family. As a church family, we have carved out time to gather together and enjoy some fun summer activities. You can take a look at our summer calendar by clicking here. And, since we're gathering together as a church family for some summer activities, it provides a perfect opportunity to be on mission and help connect people to Jesus and a community that is all about Jesus.

If you have adopted one of the suggested "8 Ways to be Missional" into your daily rhythm of life (take a look and try one for the summer if you haven't), is there an opportunity to translate that into inviting someone into deeper relationship with you or to a church event? Here are some ideas:

  • invite someone to our SDBC Carnival taking place on Saturday, June 22nd for carnival themed games, snacks, and fun;
  • invite someone to our Church Wide Picnic taking place on Sunday, July 21st following the morning service;
  • consider hosting a BBQ block party or dinner with neighbours at your home;
  • as a community group, consider a need in your neighbourhood that you could take on, such as helping someone with a project around the house; or
  • hit the pickleball courts and meet new people from the community.

Summer provides all of us with unique opportunities to be on mission in our everyday lives. If you don't know where to start or who to invite deeper into your life or to a church event, start by praying and asking God to highlight at least one person that you could be on mission for this summer. Let's love like Jesus as we strive to be everyday missionaries to help connect people to Jesus.

Mother's Day Bake Sale Update

main image

This past Sunday, during the Mother's Day festivities, the youth group held a bake sale in order to raise money for their missions trip to Salt Spring Island this July. Through this, we were able to raise $935! We want to thank everyone who gave towards this cause. Because of your generous donations, we now have a scholarship fund that can be used to help any students who are in need of financial assistance to go on the Salt Spring trip.

Please be in prayer for the students and leaders who will be heading over to Salt Spring Island from June 29th to July 6th. This week long trip will be centred around helping residents of Salt Spring with work projects and odd jobs around their homes. We aim to share the love of Christ and build community through these projects as well as youth activities throughout the week such as swimming at the lake, playing sports, and teaching sessions.

If you know of anyone in Grade 8-12 who would want to join us on this trip, you can download the registration packet by visiting our website, or email Kyle McDonald, our Youth and Young Adults Director.
