Just a reminder to our "parent" friends in Kelowna, this is happening @ KGF Tuesday February 21st, 7pm, and we couldn't recommend it higher. If you have kids in elementary / middle / high school, or even if you want to understand better the environment our kids are growing up in, then please join many others that night @ KGF, corner of Gordon & Casorso. Thanks Sid Koop for always sharing the good stuff that we need to know! Join the Facebook event here - https://www.facebook.com/events/1817995341799948/
What does it look like for you to be "BRAVE"? This 60 second video shares some of the reflections from women at KGF, in advance of our 2017 retreat @ Gardom Lake Bible Camp on the same theme, "BRAVE". Mark your calendars for this amazing weekend, May 5-7. Stay tuned for registration information.
We love the partnership between KGF and the work of Freedom's Door, helping men find freedom from addictions. Recently our Children's Ministries Team arranged to have our KGF kids write personal notes of encouragement to all of the men & volunteers at Freedom's Door. The impact was beautiful, as you'll see in this one minute video. Find out more online, http://www.freedomsdoorkelowna.com/
Strides to End Homelessness is a fun, family friendly, fundraising 5k walk or 10k run. Join us on Saturday, March 4 at Kelowna’s Gospel Mission as we walk with those we serve and, together, we will take Strides to End Homelessness.
Why walk? - Kelowna’s Gospel Mission takes care of the hurting, homeless and people in need in our community. They provide service to all with a servant’s heart – being the hands of Jesus. KGM is a 100 bed emergency shelter that also provides, at no cost, anyone in need 3 meals per day, showers, clothing, laundry services, haircuts, chiropractic care, dental care, bible study, prayer, recovery programs, help with accessing services such as housing, mental health care, outreach, transitional storage and more.
Many people in our congregation have volunteered at the shelter – a mission at home – and can see that KGM brings hope and changes lives. Through their case-work they have found 250 homes for people who were homeless. This is our opportunity to raise funds to support the homeless and hurting in our community. The walk takes place at 259 Leon. Registration is at 3 p.m. with the walk/run at 4 p.m. There are many guests of KGM who will be taking part in this walk so let’s show them we care and walk with them.

"Jesus makes it abundantly clear that the unclean person is not your enemy." Pastor Levi invites us to reflect on who we have pushed to the margins, when Jesus invites to the table.

Do you find yourself focusing on what you don't have as opposed to what you do have? Sometimes we short change what God wants to do in us and through us because we think what we have is insignificant compared to others. Here's Pastor Mike with 60 seconds from the message, "It's In Your Hands".

Every Sunday we broadcast our two morning services live from KGF @ the corner of Gordon & Casorso in beautiful Kelowna, BC. Here's Pastor Mike with a 30 second explanation and invitation. Join us this & every Sunday, 8:30am, 10:15am, live online, www.kgfchurch.com/stream
Some comments from those who have benefited from Live Stream:
“I have been watching the online sermons as I am at Bible College in Abbotsford and it continues to be a blessing to me. Thank you for live streaming as it has had a great impact on me as well as others."
“This past Sunday service was such a blessing to me and my husband as we regularly watch via livestream from Coquitlam. Because of a health problem, I'm unable to attend our local church, so we're thankful for the opportunity to join with you via livestream."
"I wanted to thank you for the Online Live Stream Services. They are so well done by the tech team. It is wonderful to feel like part of the family even when I can't be there. I must have spent at least 1/2 year on my couch, at the services. What a blessing."
"Really sad I couldn't make it to church in person today, but so thankful for the live stream! Thanks everyone who works hard to make it happen."
What are you known for? Your condition? Your limitation? Your failures? Wouldn't it be amazing to be known for your true identity, not your brokenness? Here's Pastor Mike Penninga with 90 seconds on how God sees you.
