We are starting a new season of Donuts & Discussion, trying a slightly different format. The teaching time is combined, so the Grade 6-8s and the Grade 9-12s are together, and then break off into separate discussion groups.

Our new curriculum is looking at World Religions and Cults, and concludes with a look at some of the differences between Christian denominations and the defining traits of evangelical Christianity – it’s volume 8 in a series called Fuel2.

Many of the youth and young adults have joined in with Alpha this Fall and are excited about going through the course together, but also about interacting with lots of other people at Kingsview. In particular, they are looking forward to the retreat weekend on Oct. 30-31.

After such a great summer at Echo Lake, we can’t wait for the Fall camp! On Oct. 9th we’ll head back up north for 3 more amazing days.

We’re anticipating awesome teaching from the guest speaker, Greg Elford – Bishop Keith and Donna’s son! Please pray for great weather, safe travel and life transforming experiences for all the young people that attend the last camp of the year.

The young adults have been organizing a regular get together on the last Sunday evening of each month, attending The Attic.

The Attic is a worship and prayer experience designed to allow people to worship in whatever way you feel comfortable as you connect with God and everyone else.

For more details talk, to Jabin Carrasco.

In the community, things are ramping up for the Fall! There are lots of volunteer opportunities; please contact Pastor Darrin if you’re interested in serving.
