What a wonderful night for our teens. #KGFYouth Kickoff was an amazing time of crazy fun (mummy race), snacks, fellowship, ping pong, building relationships, and considering what we'd do with our OneLife if we only had one shot, one bullet. Answer: LoveGod and LoveNeighbour! Praise God for our young people and for our "SeaOfYellow" (youth leaders) as we embark on a new chapter in youth ministry at KGF.

We have three families with four children (three girls and a boy!) being dedicated Sunday September 21st, 3:30 – 4:30pm in the HUB (remember, Here U Belong!) This is for everyone, and this new format will allow for an extended time with the families, including more prayer, encouragement, and of course, refreshments! Please do join this celebration, as together we come alongside these young families. (The Barski's, Chambers' and Dyment families)
We have created a brand new video designed to introduce people to the heart of our church family.
Already it has touched more than 20,000 people (the power of Social Media!) and we’d love for you to share with your family and friends, through email or Facebook. You can click here to watch the video, and then pass along to others.
Thanks for helping get the good news out in this modern way!
Tables are set, 341 people have said they are coming! Time to plan the food you're bringing and join us Monday / Tuesday / Wednesday September 15-17 for our 3 Fall Kickoff Potlucks!

Our pastoral team spent the morning touring Kelowna General Hospital with Spiritual Care Director Derek Koch. He is awesome, a solid Jesus follower who wants to connect not only with patients but staff, so look for Derek around KGH. We were brought up to speed on how we can visit and encourage people in the hospital. If you or someone you know is hospitalized and would like a visit from us, please note religious affiliation "Christian" upon admittance, and call our church office. We don't want to miss people who need shepherding!
You may have heard that our 8:30am and 10:00am services are now available live, in their entirety, online here. Each week the number of people who are watching online is increasing, with 60 people last Sunday joining us.

I never expected to be writing this post, but it’s so very EXCITING. After all the donations were added up, the total for Raise the Roof is now at. . . . $64,750.45
Can you say PRAISE THE LORD! Wow, that’s fantastic. . .and now with the power of a penny being added to that, we anticipate the total should be over $100,000. Thank you for being a church family that invests so generously in that which has massive Kingdom impact! I'm proud to be your pastor :) More on their website, www.gardomlake.ca.
