Ultimate Hope Found in the Passover

Chag sameach! This is a Hebrew greeting that is translated as “happy festival” or “happy holidays”. It is a greeting that many Jewish people would have heard throughout the day today, and it is a greeting I often heard from some of my family members around this time of year while growing up. Last night […]

Even Now

In the Monday Men’s Group we just wrapped up our study of Joel, and speaking for myself, I loved the time I had to dig into the short book. For a lot of us, the first thing that comes to mind when we think about Joel is that it’s the locust book. Lots and lots […]

Out With the Old, In With the New

Some things grow better with time, but buildings are not one of them. Certain structures may grow more dear to our hearts as the years roll by because of the history, heritage and memories of special times which took place there. But the actual building itself gradually declines. Eventually, its value is used up and […]

In the Beginning, God Created …

Isn’t it astounding that the first verb in the Bible is create. God created – he didn’t “blink” things into existence, or “poof” them into being – he thoughtfully, artistically created.

One of the most vivid memories I have, other than the taste of fresh honey, is sensing the power of swarming bees […]

We have supported the Philippes since 2013, shortly after a short-term team from EBC got the chance to meet them in Haiti and hear of their […]

Helping Hands

I have always loved physical work, particularly construction and landscaping. I came by it honestly, as they say, as my dad has spent the bulk of his life in a variety of construction trades. But Dad not only made a living as a contractor, it was a passion he instilled in our family. From our […]

Jesus Makes Everything New

A couple of weekends ago, our youth group attended a youth conference consisting of several other youth groups in the Vancouver area. The theme for the two-day conference was “Jesus Makes Everything New”. While the conference was full of joy, lots of energy, and fun, to truly appreciate the good news that Jesus is making […]

Worship Services this Weekend

If I’ve learned anything in my years of public speaking, it is that communication is really difficult! No, it’s not hard to stand up front and say words (well, sometimes it’s harder than others), but rather, the challenge is in sharing information clearly, so that you don’t leave people with more questions than answers. So […]
