Our Internationals group is back! After a long time not seeing each other due the pandemic restrictions, we were able to gather again for the first time on June 18th at Nelson Park. It was a great time of fellowship and catching up with each other. It was a delightful moment to hear each other share about how the Lord has cared for us during this season filled with so much uncertainties. 

 On July 10th, we had another gathering at Granville Island where more internationals joined us for a great time of laughter, good conversations, and donuts! More gatherings to come in the next few weeks. 

Here is our Summer calendar:

July 24 (Saturday) - Park gathering + BBQ (Location: Cleveland Dam Park)
Aug 7 (Saturday) - Deep Cove (Donuts + Picnic + hiking)
Aug 20 (Friday) - Park gathering + BBQ (Location: TBD)

Here are some ways that you can participate in the life of our Internationals ministries: 

 1) Praying for them, for our country as we open up the borders to internationals travellers. I believe that we’ll receive more immigrants than ever after the pandemic is over. Prayer is crucial at all times, but even more now.

2) Come hang out with us! Check out our calendar, come and join us for one of the events. That’s the best way to connect with our Internationals and start developing your relationship with them.
