Grant Funds for NAB Youth

The-Gathering-2020-1

To the pastors and churches of the BCBA,
There is funding from the BCBA, up to an amount of $100 per person, for any church sending youth to The Gathering.  Sunshine Ridge Baptist has 18 registered this year and it looks like it’s going to be another awesome experience for youth from all over Canada and the USA to join together to do mission work in the community, and to worship and study together.
See details and registration information below.

Every three years, high school students from across the NAB come together in Orange County for an experience unlike any other. For five jam-packed days, students hear from gifted speakers, sing praises to God, dive into the Word, engage in service projects, and interact with others from across Canada and the US.

This is The Gathering, a youth conference and missions experience that provides students with a variety of thoughtful experiences to dive deeper in faith, community, and service as an opportunity to become ambassadors for Jesus in Orange County and inspire them to serve God and others when they return home. The Gathering is the only venue that assembles students from across the NAB in one place for a time of worship, service, transformation, and fun.

The BC Association has been blessed with Legacy Funds that are being made available to BCBA member churches so they can reach their communities with the love and hope that we have in Christ.  It is exciting to hear all of the ways our churches have been blessing and loving their communities with these extra funds and we want to celebrate together what God is doing.  As we compile updates from our churches, we will be sharing stories and photos on our website “News” section.

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year

We had a fantastic time at the BC Association Metro Vancouver Christmas party, hosted by Bob and Dawn Krahn.  Pastors, executives and their families joined for a fun time of visiting, delicious food and a comical white elephant gift exchange! We hope that all of you had meaningful Christmas celebrations, and now we look to a new year. Not just a new year, but a new decade. We are excited to see how God works in 2020.

Many blessings and Happy New Year!!!

Summer Missions – Pelly Crossing, Yukon

Bob and Dawn were thrilled to be able to join the enthusiastic youth from Bethany Baptist, Richmond, under the leadership of Kelly Madland and Rita Anderson, at Pelly Crossing in the Yukon to work with the children there this July. They ran a kids Bible program, handed out Bibles, and hosted a community bbq with fresh bannock, singing, and face painting. The kids had lots of fun painting Bob’s head!   God is working at Pelly Crossing and we are excited to see what He has in store for the future.
