Have you ever wondered how people are able to ski fast through trees or bike down mountains without hitting anything? Pastor Mike reminds us that it matters where your eyes are. And there is a spiritual principle within that truth that we all need to come to grips with.

What's the best way to head into a battle? Pastor Mike suggests it might be singing. What would happen if we let worship lead us?

Personal stories are so powerful. That's why Pastor Mike took a few minutes to tell the story of one young adult in our congregation who has finally found the hope she was looking for, in Jesus! More online, www.kgfchurch.com
Many of you have been asking whether they can contribute financially to the ministries of KGF online. The answer now is yes! Here is a short video Pastor Mike made with our Executive Administrator, Jeanne Acheson, which explains all the details.
There are now four ways that you can partner financially with us at KGF:
During Sunday Services: You can give Sunday morning through cash or cheques placed in the offering bag. If you would like a tax receipt for your donation, please ensure your name and current address are marked on your cheque or the offering envelope (located in the pew racks.) Each person is assigned a giving number, which you can request by emailing email@example.com
Foyer Drop Box: If you unable to give during the service, we also have a drop box in the foyer where you can leave your offering. This box is located on the wall next to the Kids Min sign-in and can be used throughout the week.
Pre-Authorized Debit (PAD) Many people now give through Pre-Authorized Debit (PAD) which comes out of your bank account automatically once or twice per month. If you would like to set this up please fill out a PAD agreement which is available on the back of the offering envelopes, at the Starting Point Desk, on our website here, or by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org
Online Banking: This is the newest way to give. If you bank with BMO, TD Canada Trust, CIBC (including President’s Choice) or Credit Unions (we are working to include other banks) you can now add Kelowna Gospel Fellowship Church as a payee and donate to KGF anywhere you have internet service. To take advantage of online banking, please contact email@example.com to receive your KGF personal account number.
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact Jeanne, via email or at the office, 250-763-6553.
We are grateful for the many people who contribute financially to support the ministries here at KGF. Our prayer is that you would feel an incredible joy and satisfaction as you see all God is doing in our midst and through you, His children. Thank you for the trust you have, and continue to show in the leadership. We look forward to amazing ministry seasons ahead!

"You must each decide in your heart how much to give and don’t give reluctantly or in response to pressure for God loves a person who gives cheerfully." 2 Corinthians 9:7 NLT

What a joy it was to come alongside these six high school grads to bless and pray over them as they step into a new chapter of their journey. Thank you for being a church family that embraces all generation. We loved how you encouraged these grads on an individual basis, and on a corporate level. Keep going Pastor Marcus and team!
