The IMAGINE drama team from Kelowna Christian School presented a very powerful reflection on the final hours of Jesus' life.
Thanks for your vivid portrayal that reminded us of God's great love for us, as lived out through the cross!
This drama was shared at the close of our series, "Final Words", messages here:

It was wonderful to hear from Marcus Schmaling, his journey, calling, and passion for Jesus and His church. Our church family will vote to call Marcus to the position of Youth & Young Adults Pastor @ KGF during our membership meeting Sunday April 13, 2014.
A beautiful morning Sunday as we commissioned our new Associate Pastor, Levi Simpson. Levi and his wife Shelley have three girls, Avery, Ella & Lauren. We are excited for all that lies ahead!
'I don’t want to end up a bureaucrat in the time-management business for God or a librarian cataloguing timeless truths.’ Eugene Peterson “The Pastor”
1 Peter 5:2-4 “Care for the flock that God has entrusted to you. Watch over it willingly, not grudgingly—not for what you will get out of it, but because you are eager to serve God. Don’t lord it over the people assigned to your care, but lead them by your own good example. And when the Great Shepherd appears, you will receive a crown of never-ending glory and honor.”
Exciting changes are in the works as we continue to maximize our facility at the corner of Gordon & Casorso. Here, Pastor Mike and Board Chair Mel Newth unpack the plan for significant renovations to our current gym, into a multi-use "Hub" that will be very functional & beautiful.
Join us Sunday April 13th, 7pm in the Sanctuary, as our membership votes on this next important step.
As many of you know, KGF has made a decision to facilitate growth through multiple services on our current campus at Gordon & Casorso. This decision means we can be ministry rich and mortgage free, which is awesome. The original launch date for our Third Service was scheduled for this Easter. However the board and staff have made a decision to hold off on launching our third Sunday morning service until September 2014.
Originally, we were scheduled to do so at Easter, but the desire to move ahead with our pastoral staff, support team, & volunteers fully in place and equipped means that we are going to hold off launching until Kickoff Sunday September 7. Easter Sunday will still be three services, 8:30am, 10:00am and 11:30am, but we will remain at 2 Sunday morning services until September.
We are committed to creating more opportunities for people to know Jesus and make Him known, and are excited for this next step. As a board & staff team, we want to make sure that we do so in a time and way that has the best chance of success and impact.
The leadership board @ KGF is excited to introduce Marcus Schmaling as our candidate for position of Youth & Young Adults Pastor. Marcus and his wife Beth and their two boys Elijah & Rafael have been part of the KGF family for nearly two years, and have served in many significant capacities. Marcus will be candidating Sunday April 6th, and the membership will have an opportunity to vote to call Marcus to this role on Sunday April 13th.
Here, Marcus shares a bit of his journey with Pastor Mike.
You can read more about Marcus, including his resume & philosophy of ministry, in the documents attached.
