2013 South Hill Festival!

The 11th Annual South Hill Festival is happening this weekend ! This festival is a community event that celebrates our vibrant, diverse, and inter-connected neighbourhood, and it's happening this Saturday, May 25th, from 12-4pm.

We'll be participating in the Festival by running a smoothie and watermelon stand -- making fresh fruit smoothies with our bike blender! Come by and join us as we seek to engage with and serve the community -- our booth will be in the Parking Lot 2, between East 47th and East 48th, just off Fraser St.

Good Seed Sunday Sermon -- now up!

Click on over to the 'Sermons' tab to hear Lydia Cruttwell's Good Seed Sunday sermon on creation -- both the bad news and the good news. There's also several other links to articles and websites talking about creation and creation-care. And once you're done reading those, get outside and enjoy the beautiful spring weather!

Come Pray with Us! (at 7:30pm)

This Monday May 6th, we will be meeting in the church basement at 7:30pm for our monthly prayer meeting. Please come join us in praying for ourselves, our church, our city and our world!

Please be aware -- this prayer service is incorrectly listed in the bulletin and on the calendar as happening at 7pm. Our apologies for the mistake -- it actually starts at 7:30!

Faithful Finances...

Just a reminder for all you FUMC folks out there to fill out a 'Surplus Feedback Form' (available in the foyer of the church, on green half-sheets of paper). We've got a surplus of over $20,000 from last year's budget, and are working to discern -- thoughtfully and prayerfully -- how we should spend it. Since we've already got a very healthy contingency fund (i.e., money put away for our upcoming roof replacement) and enough in our church budget for established programs of the church, we're looking for your ideas as to where to spend these funds. Should we give some away to non-profit organisations within the Vancouver area? Should we contribute more to our denominational groups? Should we support overseas missions? Should we donate to Christian educational institutions?

We are looking for your feedback, and the forms are due by Sunday May 12th. So please do give us your input -- every voice counts!

Simon Peter Sermons...

Thanks to the excellent work of Randy Loewen, the first and second sermons of our Simon Peter series are now available for download. So click on over to the 'Sermons' tab and hear some stories about this passionate (but not always persevering) follower of Christ!
