Last Friday people from churches across the city came together in unified Worship and Prayer. It was truly a powerful night full of expectation of what God has in store for this city. I have never experienced individuals coming together in one unified voice like I did on Friday. It was something I will never forget and am so looking forward to the next time we are able to come together to celebrate our Saviour as the ONEchurch of Kelowna.

The 1st Community Dinner hosted by the Refugee Team was a great success. We had over 70 people come out to celebrate Christmas with our Syrian families. A traditional Christmas turkey dinner along with delicious Syrian side dishes were enjoyed by all. We celebrated with a few Christmas carols and the Christmas story. Keep your eyes on the bulletin and website for our next Community Dinner in February!
We invite you to join us for an evening of dining, sharing in community and storytelling from James and Janet Toews, along with musical guests the very talented Moipei Triplets.

Looking forward to Christmas for many is an exciting time. Making plans, gathering with friends and family, and coming together at KGF to celebrate the birth of Jesus. For some, looking forward to Christmas is, however, cloaked in angst and apprehension.
We are inviting you to pause and look around for those signs and forewarnings of loss, grief and separation that you might see in the faces and lives of those in our congregation and community.
We know you will be sharing the hope, the peace of Christ and maybe sharing some Christmas goodies to those who might be alone. We invite you to know that our Stephen Ministry team is meeting with care receivers, continuing their training and able to receive new care receivers.
Should you know of somebody struggling with life’s difficulties please share with them that there is a wonderful group of trained Stephen Ministers offering a listening ear, a time of prayer and a willingness to walk with them through tough times.
For those that might consider having a Stephen Minister or want to learn more, please gain their permission and pass along their name and phone number and your name and number to Pastoral Care at KGF 250-763-6553 or email email@example.com
