An Invitation to Fellowship: Please join one of our Small Groups!

We have various small groups/bible studies at this church -- groups which meet weekly to share concerns and pray for one another, to study the bible together, and to grow deeper in fellowship and in faith.

Hopefully one of these groups sparks your interest... and if none of them works for you, if you'd be interested in leading a new group, or if you have any other questions, please contact Pastor Lydia email:, phone: 604-321-2131.


Vancouver Area

A new, Vancouver-area small group bible study will be starting up, hosted by Randy & Mary Loewen and others in Vancouver, and will likely meet Friday evenings starting in mid-October. Snacks and coffee/tea will be served, and all are welcome to come.


German Bible Study

On the 2nd and 3rd Wednesday of each month we gather in the church basement at 10:00 am for a German bible study. All are welcome to join us led by Hans-Gerhard Fast. Please phone the church at 604-321-2131 for more info.


Young Adults Group

The YAC (Young Adults Connect) group is now centred around a number of households along St. George St. half a block west of our church -- hence, we've renamed ourselves the St. George small group! We'll be meeting on Tuesdays (7:00 pm), and we have a monthly rotation of bible studies, potlucks, and nights of sharing and prayer. Please contact Lydia Cruttwell 604-727-4431 for specific details -- all are welcome!
