60th Anniversary Final Update

main image

Our 60th anniversary celebration was a fantastic reminder of God's faithfulness and his lavish grace, which we have received throughout the sixty years of our history. To celebrate this important milestone, we set out to raise funds for three projects that would see us invest in the next generation of our community: 1. Improvements to our Youth and Children's facilities; 2. Starfish Pack; 3. SDBC Tutoring.

The designated fund for the 60th Anniversary Projects was open until the end of 2019, and we aimed to raise $60,000 for these three projects. We have tallied up all the funds that came in throughout the year, and we're thankful to announce that we have raised $76,977 for the 60th Anniversary Projects. Thank you for participating in our celebration and giving toward these needs in our community. We also want to recognize local businesses that partnered with us to invest in the next generation together. We look forward to seeing the impact of these funds on families' and students' lives. We pray that God will multiply the impact of these funds so that it would bear amazing fruit for his glory and for the benefit of many people.

Starfish Pack Needs More Help

main image

As you may know, we started up the Starfish Pack South Delta location here at SDBC in October! When we started, we were serving 10 students from one elementary school and now we are serving 23 students from five elementary schools!

Starfish Pack is one of the initiatives that we raised funds for at our 60th anniversary banquet and at our Christmas Eve service with a special offering.

This Thursday, we will start packing backpacks again after the Christmas break, and although we have an awesome team of individuals, because of the growth of this program we are in need of more help! We are looking for people to help us pack food on Thursday mornings at 10AM as well as a few more individuals to help with picking up empty backpacks from the schools on Wednesdays.

This initiative is a tangible way of loving and serving our neighbours in the community. The impact it is having on those receiving the backpacks is incredible, as some of these students would otherwise be arriving at school on Mondays hungry.

If you are interested in serving with Starfish Pack, or if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to email me or call the church office at 604-943-8244.

Awana Grand Prix Is Back!

Happy New Year to you all! I trust you had a wonderful time over the holidays with your family and friends.

A new year can bring on many new commitments for families that can bring busyness to the household. Our Kids Team is committed to helping our families raise their children to love like Jesus and to show who Jesus is to others. We have been blessed by some of your stories of your kids: some who have accepted the Lord as their Saviour, a child’s desire for baptism, and children bringing their friends to our events. We are excited when we are able to come alongside parents who dedicate their children to the Lord. We find it an honour and pleasure to assist our families in any way we can as they raise their kids.

We have many new families who have started attending over this past year and we are eager to get to know them and serve them. One way we can do this is to have family events, and so we will have our first Grand Prix races on January 31st at 7PM. Families are invited to purchase a car kit from our Kids Team and create their own car to participate in the races to see who will be the fastest. You can purchase your $10 car kit from the bus starting January 5th. The kit includes a small pine block of wood, stickers, plastic wheels, axels, and instructions on how to construct a race car. You will be assigned a number, which is provided, and this number must be placed on the completed car.

As a family, you can design your car any way you want. If you need help cutting out your car, let us know and we can direct you to get help. We will need the cars back by Sunday January 26th, in order to weigh them and be ready for the races on the 31st. More information will be with the car kits when you purchase them.

Please join us on race day to see which family will have the fastest car! There will be prizes too! Important dates to remember are:

  • January 5th, 12th, & 19th: car kits on sale at the bus
  • January 26th: last day to turn in completed cars
  • January 31st: Grand Prix Races at 7PM
