Impact Conference

South Delta Baptist Church belongs to a network of churches called the Fellowship of Evangelical Baptist Churches. We are partners in fulfilling the gospel mandate together as brothers and sisters in Christ spread out all throughout our nation. The Pacific region of our Fellowship of churches gathers once a year for a convention called, “IMPACT Convention.” This convention is being held on April 26th and 27th at Sardis Fellowship Baptist Church. At this two-day event, we will cover business for our denomination and also celebrate what God is doing through our fellowship of churches in BC and Yukon. Our church leaders will also be taught and inspired by a Keynote speaker, Daniel Im, author and pastor of The Fellowship church in Nashville. IMPACT Convention also includes partner agencies like Northwest Baptist Seminary, Baptist Housing, WINGS, Camp Qwanoes, Sunnybrae Bible Camp, Vancouver Urban Ministries, New Hope Community Services, and other agencies that partner with us to participate in God’s mission. Please visit the Fellowship Pacific website for more information on IMPACT 2018.  

We are sending six delegates to this convention from our church, but any of our members are welcome to attend this convention without being a delegate. If you are interested in attending this event, please contact our church office to arrange your attendance at IMPACT 2018.

Easter

I hope this week means something special to you and your family as we remember the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ, and what He has accomplished through it all. We will celebrate Jesus’ atoning death on the cross and His glorious resurrection this weekend as we gather together for a communion service on Friday and Easter service on Sunday. Of course, we live with the impact of what happened at Calvary circa two thousand years ago on a daily basis, but we set apart this one week each year to commemorate the beautiful work God has done for us in washing away our sins through the sacrifice of His Son. This year, my wife and I—and our family at large—are experiencing the impact of Christ’s resurrection more tangibly. As we said goodbye to Margaret (my mother-in-law) earlier this week, we realize that the hope we have in Jesus’ death and resurrection is so real and immediately relevant to all of us who have this hope of eternal life. Death confronts us with the question of, “What happens next?” and in the resurrection of Jesus, we learn the answer to this question—eternal life in the presence of the almighty Creator; our Lord and King. The sad thing is that many people around us are living in this broken world without much hope. Please come and pray with us for the mission of our church to bring this hope to the nations as we gather for the prayer vigil between Good Friday and Saturday morning. Please also join us this weekend to celebrate this inextinguishable hope we have in Jesus, and to honour the Lord who has given His life to bring us into the fold of God’s grace. May His glory be known and praised this weekend!

Men's Breakfast 2018

main image

Iron sharpens iron. We have heard this expression many times over the years. It’s an odd expression if you are not familiar with the concept that it takes a higher grade of steel to actually forge, bend, mould, shape, and sharpen a lower grade of steel, into the desired object of the maker's choice.
 
This expression found its way into Proverbs 27:17: “As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another.” This is one of the reasons why we appoint pastors as overseers of our church families. Pastors serve many functions, but one of those functions is to keep speaking truth into the lives of the people attending church in an effort to “sharpen” us into the people that God desires us to become.
 
God uses many people to sharpen us. This is not gender specific, nor is the role of the “sharpener” delegated to a certain class of individuals called pastors or clergy. On April 21st, in the SDBC Chapel, we will be hearing from a man who has been shaped and sharpened by other people in his life to become a highly successful CFL quarterback for the BC Lions. Travis Lulay has found great success in his football career, as well as in his life, due to others who invested in him along the way.
 
The SDBC Men’s Ministry will host a breakfast beginning at 8AM where we will share a meal together and hear from Travis Lulay as he shares his faith journey with us. His story will challenge us and sharpen us to become our best. One of the great things about events like this is by just joining in, we actually sharpen each other in our personal relationships as we continue to develop our own relationship, but with the added bonus of hearing from a genuine sports star.
 
Tickets for this event will be going on sale this Sunday, March 25th at the Spotlight Table. You will also be able to purchase tickets online. We expect to sell out because of limited space. Will you consider coming and allowing God to use a man like Travis Lulay to sharpen and challenge you in your faith walk?
