Second Sunday in Season of Creation

“Where’s your mind at?” Maybe thats a question you’ve been asked before. It’s what Jesus as much as asks Peter in our gospel reading today. And it’s a good question for us to be asking as we continue our journey through the Season of Creation and reflect on our discipleship as stewards of creation.

Today we welcome back in person those who have registered to attend; may this be the first step in our return to full fellowship in the very near future.

Today’s worship service will be live-streamed on our YouTube channel at 10:30 am. Join us live, or watch the video here at a later time.

First Sunday in Season of Creation

On this Sunday of Labour Day weekend we hear a reflection from one of our members on the connection between her life’s work and her faith. It’s also the First Sunday of the Season of Creation. And so we reflect on the work we’ve all been given to care for creation and make this world a home for all in which to dwell and flourish.

Then later in the afternoon we are holding a fun and creative event in recognition of the Season of Creation! You’re invited to join us at the church this Sunday afternoon to make creation-themed chalk art on the parking lot. You can also colour a picture to add to one of three new beautiful SOC banners Claire Thompson has created. And of course…there will be treats! Bring a mask and drop in any time between 2-4. Stay as long as you like and let your creative spirit soar!

Twenty-First Sunday in Ordinary Time

Questions. Conundrums. Mysteries. Our gospel reading today has them all…with a healthy dose of good news thrown into the mix as well. Join us as we reflect on what it means to live as disciples in a world where answers are sometimes impossible to find.

Mid-Week Worship

This Wednesday, August 18, at 7:30 pm, Pastor Eric and Elina will be leading another mid-week outdoor worship service. This will be an opportunity to gather for in-person worship under the beauty of our trees. We will follow a very informal liturgy which Elina has put together. All are welcome.

Bring a mask and a lawn chair (if you have one). Chairs will be provided for those who don’t have one. 

Feast of Mary, Mother of our Lord

This week we are taking a short break from the gospel of John and Jesus’s teachings about bread, and celebrating the feast day of Mary, the mother of our Lord. We are not wandering too far, though. Today’s gospel text is Mary’s song that gives glory to God who is on the side of the hungry and the poor, who has brought down the powerful and lifted up the lowly. Join us to wonder what Mary’s song means in our time. 

Today’s worship service will be live-streamed on our YouTube channel at 10:30 am. Join us live, or watch the video here at a later time.

Campfire Night – CANCELLED

UPDATE: The smoke has rolled in, and the air quality is dangerously bad right now. So, the campfire event tonight is cancelled. It would not be good to sit around in the smoke. I was really looking forward to spending time with everyone. Maybe we can try again in September – stay tuned. In the meantime, stay cool and stay safe! 

Original Post:

Hi Everyone,

We gather for another summer campfire night on Friday at 7:30pm, this time with campfire songs, hot dogs, and s’mores! Come and join us. 

Do you have roasting sticks we could borrow? Please let us know. 

Do you have a favourite campfire song? Let us know that as well! 

Nineteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time

This week is another installment of what is called the bread of life discourse – a five week time when the gospel readings are from the sixth chapter of John, and all about bread. Two weeks ago Jesus fed a huge crowd with five loaves and two fish. And now he’s teaching more about bread.

What do we mean when we say Jesus is the bread of life? What does it mean to those who don’t know where their next meal will come from, and when? What does it mean to those who do not know what hunger feels like?

Eighteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time

Today there will be no service from Good Shepherd. You can be a worship tourist and visit another ELCIC church from the following list complied by our National Office:

As one possibility you could take in the service at Trinity, Delta. They don’t live stream their Sunday service but they record it and post it after to the YouTube channel here:

Or if you’d like to join another Krushel-led service you could take in the service from my brother Brian’s congregation, Faith Lutheran in Kelowna. They have pre-recorded a service which includes a sermon from the bishop of the Manitoba-Northwestern Ontario synod, Jason Zinko. You can find the service by visiting their YouTube channel here:

Seventeenth Sunday in Ordinary Time

Today we read the story of Jesus’s miracle of feeding the 5,000 with five loaves and two fish. Maybe one of the most astounding of Jesus’s miracles. And yet, perhaps also one of the most important for the future of the church.  So join us as we listen, worship, praise, and partake of the miracle of Jesus feeding us in the sacrament of Holy Communion. 

Today’s worship service will be live-streamed on our YouTube channel at 10:30 am. Join us live, or watch the video here at a later time.
