As we prepare to launch our new season of youth ministry (grades 7-12), we took time in the service to pray for and bless those who are going to be pouring their lives into these teenagers. Youth meet Tuesday nights 7-9pm at KGF, and Pastor Marcus Schmaling and the team are very excited!

What a joy to come alongside three young families as they dedicated their littles to God. Child dedication is actually more like Parental dedication. We all know we need God's help to lead well the precious treasures He has entrusted to us. And we are committing to walk with them on the journey!
Here, Pastor Mike & Pastor Jamie pray over three families, with four children - Owen & Lindsey Barski with twin girls Olivia & Aria, Mark & Alanna Chambers with daughter Halle, and Steve & Joelene Dyment with son Logan.
Encourage these parents, and be part of the spiritual investment in their kids!
We love celebrating the amazing work of Christian organizations in our community, and the Kelowna Gospel Mission definitely fits that bill! Here, Pastor Mike Penninga spends a few minutes with one of our church family members, Brian Penner, who works at the Gospel Mission in the area of Human Resources. Brian shares an exciting opportunity to support the Gospel Mission through an upcoming event, Ride for Refuge. More online here

Moms & Dads. . . you matter more than you can imagine!
In this short video from a recent child dedication time at KGF, Pastor Mike Penninga and Children's Pastor Jamie Roy share from their own parenting journey's. We hope this will encourage and spur you on in your own families!

It's amazing that each Sunday, 150 plus kids under 12 years old are part of the KGF church family! What a privilige and responsibility to shepherd these young lives well. And now with three Sunday services, and two services available for kids (8:30am & 10:00am), we have a lot of new opportunities for you to step up and invest in that which has an eternal reward! Here's Pastor Mike and mom & Kids Ministry volunteer, Becca Klassen with a big vision!
What a joy it is to celebrate the important spiritual step of baptism. September 14, 2014, we joined Craig, Jenny & Marja-Leena at Okanagan Lake in City Park as they went under the waters of baptism. You can read their testimonies here - http://kgfchurch.com/your-kelowna-church/life-stories
What a great testimony that God is alive and on the move!

"So lay down your burdens
Lay down your shame
All who are broken
Lift up your face
Oh wanderer come home
You're not too far
So lay down your hurt
Lay down your heart
Come as you are"
