Kid Connect Graduation

Gideon and Marissa with Rev. Dr. Bob Paul

God’s blessings on Gideon Akuffo and Marissa Bitter who recently graduated from our Kid Connect program. The program is intended for children up to  grade 6.  Gideon and Marissa were presented with gifts to remember this day by.

Sept 17 – Axel Schoeber

Axel Schoeber was our special guest pastor on September 17. He has been an elementary school teacher and a Baptist pastor for 27 years in Jasper, Calgary, Penticton and Victoria. He also served for eight 1/2 years as Associate Professor of Supervised Ministry at Carey Theological College. He has become a consultant for online theological course design, and delights, with his wife Karen, in his family of two adult children, their spouses, and two (soon to be three) grandchildren. Axel has also coached youth soccer at the provincial competitive level.

If you missed it, his sermon on the complexity of forgiveness was worth hearing.

Kid Connect will begin Sunday, September 17.  It is open to children up to grade 6.  Parents of preschool children who are new to our program should accompany their children for the beginning sessions.  Registration forms will be available.


Around 200 people were in attendance to watch Darren Creech give an incredible performance in the latest of the concert series underway at Calvin. His music conjures up images that I’m sure the composer wanted us to see!  Mel Bowker joined up with Darren in a dual-piano rendition of the Mennonite Concerto in the second half of the performance.

The attendance keeps growing at each concert – the word is getting out that the calibre of performance is outstanding. The next in the series of performances on Wednesday, September 27 features Lixia Lee on the piano and Lee Duckles on the cello.
