What a joy it is to be part of a church family that is always looking to be part of the solution, not just bemoan the world's problems. This year the Syrian Refugee crisis came front and centre in so many ways. As a church, we have committed to sponsoring refugee families moving forward. Our goal was to raise $25,000 in our first HOPE Offering. As you'll see in this video, your generosity far exceeded that! We are anticipating our family (4 generations, 7 people) will arrive by Easter 2016.
Our very own Pastor Rolly Rangno wrote this song to share at the 2015 Christmas in the City. It's a toe-tapper, and we know you'll love it!
We were blessed to have Marcel Morneau part of our Christmas in the City presentations December 24, 2015 @ the Kelowna Community Theatre. Morneau brought us back to that first Christmas through his powerful portrayal of Joseph. We know you will be blessed by it again here.
"I've heard about this baby boy, Who's come to earth to bring us joy, And I just want to sing this song to you. It goes like this, the fourth, the fifth, The minor fall, the major lift, With every breath I'm singing Hallelujah. Hallelujah"
Relive this powerful song from the 2015 Christmas in the City, presented by the KGF Worship Team at the Kelowna Community Theatre December 24, 2015.

We are so excited to be able to share the entire 70 minute Christmas in the City presentation from December 24, 2015 @ the Kelowna Community Theatre. What an incredible night it was together with 1,600 others in person, and another 300 plus online. Feel free to relive and pass along to others. You are loved!
Christmas is a message of HOPE. But have you ever thought about how HOPE fills so many parts of our life? If you are in need of HOPE this season, take a moment to lean into what Pastor Rolly Rangno shares in this reflection from KGF Church.
"Fall on your knees
Oh hear the angel voices
Oh night divine
Oh night when Christ was born
Oh night divine
Oh night divine
The KGF Church Family was blessed with the gift of music December 20th, as our friend Garry Kakoschke shared his version of Oh Holy Night. What a powerful worship song at this time of year. Enjoy!

It is the poorest country in the western hemisphere. Over 10 million people call Haïti home, and 80% of the population lives in poverty - less than $2 a day. Adding to the misery, a large earthquake rocked the nation in 2010, killing 250,000 people and injuring over 3.5 million.
In this half hour documentary videographers Curtis Allen and Jay Stushnoff explore Haïti 5 years after the quake, and take a close look at the work being done by Compassion International to make a lasting change in the country from the inside out through it's youngest citizens.
