Our revamped Family Fun Day was a huge hit for people of all ages, as we took over Casorso School Sunday June 11th with Bounce Houses, Cotton Candy, Dunk Tanks, Games, Food Trucks and more. Here's a great 90 second recap of a wonderful community day for the KGF Church Family.
We took time in our Camp Sunday services June 25 to hear from and pray for those from KGF who will be spending the summer serving up at Gardom Lake Bible Camp. So grateful for this partnership with Gardom Lake, which is an amazing environment for leadership development of our young people. Find out more online, www.gardomlake.ca
They say a picture is worth a thousand words. Here's a "million" ways we celebrate God's work in our Student Ministries, Youth & Young Adults @ KGF this past ministry season (2016 - 2017). To God be the glory for the work He is doing in and through His children here in the KGF Church family!
Thanks to Pastor Marcus Schmaling, Devan Scollon, Parents, Volunteer Leaders, and Students for making this an incredible season of growth and kingdom impact.

We are pleased to be able to see Devan Scollon move from Youth Ministries Intern to Youth Ministries Assistant at Kelowna Gospel Fellowship Church starting August 1, 2017. Devan has been part of our family for several years, and a blessing all along the way. These past 10 months he has come alongside Pastor Marcus and our Youth team as Youth Intern, pouring into so many of our young people in awesome ways. The hand of God is clearly on Devan’s life, and we are excited to see him continue his ministry here at KGF with our growing youth group.
We took time on Father's Day Sunday June 18th to introduce & pray for Devan.
Many of you have been part of Operation Christmas Child with Samaritan’s Purse over the years, and Kelowna raises nearly 4,500 shoeboxes every October / November. That’s quite substantial really, as each box finds its way into the hands of a kid overseas. One of our family members, Betty Urness just got back from delivering shoeboxes in Africa and you can read her impact story here –
The reason I’m writing is to give you a heads up on a change of locations for Kelowna’s Collection Depot for Operation Christmas Child, from Mission Creek Alliance to Kelowna Gospel Fellowship (corner of Gordon & Casorso). Collection week is the third week of November.
Please take 2 minutes to view this video explanation above.
We are assembling a great team to help celebrate and champion this great ministry in our region, and you can email Paul Nicholson [email protected] with any questions you may have.
We encourage you to go to Samaritan’s Purse Canada’s website here https://www.samaritanspurse.ca/what-we-do/operation-christmas-child/ to order your shoeboxes / promo material / brochures and more so that you are ready for launch this Fall.
Thanks for all you do to advance the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We celebrate you and pray that the seeds that are scattered would indeed bring a kingdom harvest 30, 60, 100 fold over!

Our Syrian Refugee Family has now arrived in Kelowna! It was an emotional and powerful time at the Kelowna International Airport as we welcomed this 6 member family to a new country. Pastor Mike takes two minutes to update you on what happened, what's ahead, and how you can help. Check out our Refugee Lead Team table this Sunday June 18th in the Foyer. [email protected]
As we come to the end of another amazing ministry year at KGF, we asked our Video Tech, Curtis Allen, if he could put together a short "year in review", highlighting some of the wonderful moments from September 2016 - June 2017. We love how it came together. Be encouraged. . . God is on the move in so many ways as we Follow Jesus Together!
As our KGF Church Family grows in size and impact, we are inviting you to partner with us financially so that we can move forward into the exciting opportunities that lie ahead.
The 2017 Together We Can: More Than A Sunday Campaign has three components.
- Welcoming 50 New Givers to KGF
- Encouraging 50 Existing Partners to increase their financial contribution
- Raising $50,000 for Next Step & Capital Campaign projects in 2017.
Watch this video here with Pastor Mike & Pastor Levi and then come prepared Sunday June 4th to say yes to one or more of the above opportunities. Together We Can!
