It has now been a month and a half since Pastors Paul and Jordan announced our 60th anniversary plans, and excitement has been growing ever since! What an awesome opportunity to partner with our community and celebrate all that God has done in us and through us in the last 60 years! It truly has been 60 years of grace.
If you were there to hear the announcement, or have since watched the online video of the announcement, you know that we are raising funds as a way of celebrating our anniversary and giving back to the community. Along with our fundraising initiatives, we will host a celebration banquet on October 25th at Tsawwassen Springs.
This banquet will involve a dinner, live music, and silent auction! We are looking for and gathering items or services for this silent auction, and we wanted to extend that search to the church family. Please let us know if you are able to offer any items or services for this silent auction. Perhaps you are a photographer or a hairdresser and you are able to donate a session. Or, perhaps you own a local business and are able to donate goods. Let's have fun with the silent auction items. For instance, a youth in our church could offer ten hours of babysitting, and when a young family purchases this service, it will result in a youth and a young family in our church getting to know each other better. We highly value community at SDBC, and this is a great opportunity to build community and raise funds for a great cause at the same time!
We are interested in hearing the ideas that may arise from this and are looking forward to the chance to partner together and celebrate as a church family! If you are interested in partnering with us, please email Mary Grierson, our Community Life Coordinator.
