​​welcome

To a community of ordinary people, serving an extraordinary God with joy, friendship and vision.

July 2019

Sunshine, camp sites and barbeques. Life is best when enjoyed to the full.

No matter the time of year or location, we remain those who carry a message of the most amazing and life-giving Grace. We are still sons and daughters of the one true God.

This season often tests our spiritual disciplines.

Let us jealously guard those things that keep us connected to God and His Bride.

Meeting new people, sitting round camp fires, fishing with old friends, enjoying God’s magnificent creation certainly provides us with opportunities to be salt & light to a world where God-given peace & joy remain elusive.

“I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.” John 10:10

June 2019


Throughout history, God has looked for people to lead His people.

Leadership is not merely something to be tolerated because it is Biblical. Rather, it should be celebrated because it is God’s idea.

This month over the Fast-Pray-Feast weekend, we’ll be praying specifically for our life group leaders who do such a great job looking after us.

Colossians 1:3-5 “We always thank God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, when we pray for you, because we have heard of your faith in Christ Jesus and of the love you have for all the saints - the faith and love that spring from the hope that is stored up for you in heaven and that you have already heard about in the word of truth, the gospel that has come to you.”

“Faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.” Hebrews 11:1

We believe God has spoken to us about adding to our building.

As we start to look at plans and work with a contractor, let’s pray seriously about finances

Remember the account of the Jesus multiplying the boy’s generous contribution – his own lunch!

April 2019

Hebrews 11 tells us that “faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.”

As God points us toward expansion to the West Side and the extension of our building in Red Bluff, let us look to that future with faith – believing that God will take us there.

Isaiah 54:2-4 says "Enlarge the place of your tent, stretch your tent curtains wide, do not hold back; lengthen your cords, strengthen your stakes. 3 For you will spread out to the right and to the left; your descendants will dispossess nations and settle in their desolate cities. 4 "Do not be afraid; you will not suffer shame. Do not fear disgrace; you will not be humiliated.”

God is calling us to increase our influence in Quesnel. Let’s get on board as we extent and expand.

All for the King and His Kingdom!

February 2019

In this month of love, let’s think about Jesus’ command that we love God, one another, our neighbour and even our enemy.

It costs us something to love in this way - our preferences, time, financial resources, entitlement and stereotypes. It may even cost us our popularity, respect and dignity.

But when we lay these aside, we look and become and love more and more like Jesus. We start to see the brokenness as well as the value of others – just as He does.

"A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another." John 13:34-35

Those who marvel at the Messiah will be motivated for the mission.

“All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to Me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptising them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” Matthew 28:18-20
