Stephen Minister Information night in October



Caring for people in need is at the heart of KGF’s pastoral care ministry and we are seeking to begin selecting a second team of Stephen Ministers to begin training to provide one-to-one Christian Care to others.

We are again inviting those who have the gifts of mercy, faith, and encouragement to consider joining us in our Stephen Ministry at KGF.

A Stephen Minister is a fellow Christian who is able to share their time to walk beside a person who is impacted by the struggles of life such as illness, death, job loss, spiritual crises, or other losses.

We would love to have a conversation with those who are interested in Stephen Ministry or know of someone who would be.

Information Pamphlets on Becoming A Stephen Minister are at the Starting Point Desk & an Information Evening is being hosted on Sunday, October 28th at 6:30 pm at KGF.

If you have any questions, please contact:

Wayne Laurie, Stephen Leader

PrimeTime rides Wood Lake

PrimeTime took to the trails again on September 8th for a ride around Wood Lake. It was a great time of riding, enjoying connection, and checking out a new riding area for many who came. Enjoy the pictures, and come out in October for our next event. We’d love to see you. Watch for more news to come this week.

September Child dedication day

At KGF, we believe that children are a gift from God. Children are a high priority and value to us!

Child Dedication is a joyful opportunity for parents to acknowledge God’s incredible blessing of children as a gift from God (Psalm 127:3)

It is also formal recognition that the child belongs to God (Psalm 24:1) and a public commitment on the part of the parents and body of Christ to teach God’s Word and encourage them in their spiritual development.

Our next Child Dedication day is September 30th. Please contact Colleen if you would like to be a part of this celebration and commitment day. We will do this at both services.

Email for more information.

Gardom Lake Bible Camp summer Snapshot 2018

Greetings from Gardom,

“To The Fullest” Ephesians 3:19  “to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.

 God was faithful as we walked in His strength through the summer of 2018. It was hot, dry, and smoky but that did not stop us from sharing God’s love, learning new skills, making new friends and having a lot of fun while giving our campers a great camp experience.

Total Campers: What a summer, we surpassed our total number of campers from last year with over 1750 campers for a Gardom Lake summer camp record!

Total Life-Changing Spiritual Decisions: We had 333 campers report (on their weekly evaluations) that they made a first-time commitment to Jesus Christ at GLBC this summer. Another 459 campers recommitted to follow Christ and go deeper in their relationship with Him during their week at summer camp.

3 staff baptisms: Together with the staff member’s family, church community, friends, and entire GLBC staff team, these individuals took the public step of obedience through baptism.

Junior Staff: We had 38 junior staff during July, and 39 junior staff during August, for a total of 77 junior staff. These 15 & 16 year-olds come to camp and serve for 3 weeks. They work hard to support the cabin leaders in camp activities, serve meals, wash dishes, and clean around the camp. They also have daily sessions to help them grow as leaders, and disciples of Christ. They are an integral part of camp operations and become our future cabin leaders and resource staff.

Highlights: The new Quattro Water feature was a hit at the beach – this replaced our aging Iceberg and was enjoyed by campers and staff of all ages and abilities. It was easier to climb up, slide down or jump off, and even was a fun place to hang out as there was room for up to 10 individuals at the top. Laser Tag was a great addition to our programming, it was well-received by campers and staff. Our new amphitheatre was completed half-way through the summer and became a fantastic place to do morning chapels, skit night, and movie nights. (You can see photos of the new amphitheatre in the attached photo and on our Facebook page). Once again, our weekly “Hi Mom” videos were a huge success to Mom’s but we are creatively think of new ways to say “Hi” for next year.

One of my personal highlights of the summer was recommissioning our staff back to return to their community’s. The symbolism to our staff to continue to be servant leaders as they head home was powerful. We also had communion and broke into encouragement groups to bless each other in their strengths and giftedness. This was a powerful evening and a real encouragement to our staff. It is fantastic to be a part of an “iron sharpens iron” community.

I am so thankful for the praying community that supports the ministry at GLBC. Your prayers and support create a “greenhouse” environment that brings people to Christ, inspires others to go deeper with Him, and grows Godly leaders. As always, it is my privilege and honour to lead a fantastic team through another amazing summer. Morgan Taylor to guide, challenge, and encourage the support staff here with his passion to develop young leaders; Mark Griffin and Andy Kieneker as they cooked amazing food and worked so hard in a very hot kitchen; Jim MacKnee as he addressed the many maintenance issues that arise as we bring in so many staff and campers; and Faith Scarrott as she tackles registration, phone calls, bills, administration details, and cares for staff through prayer and a listening ear.

Please continue to pray for Gardom Lake as we move into a busy season of school groups, rentals, building projects and getting the camp back into order after an intense and fruitful summer. We are looking forward to dreaming and preparing for a great summer of 2019 as we serve our great God.

Again, this year, is we are having a “recommended donation” of $50. Our youth ministry continues to grow, and as we improve our programming, and provide more food and transportation our hope is parents will partner with us financially to meet these needs.We are doing this again to prevent charging $5 for individual events and just have a lump sum at the beginning of the year to simplify things. Thank you so much for your support!

Please click on the “Register Now” button, and you can register your teen into our database (which is confidential), as well as make a donation. After you register, you will be sent a confirmation email, with a link to our 2018-19 Calendar!
