Got a story to tell?

The TGC-BC Newsletter is an excellent vehicle for you to share how God is working in your life or your place of worship. To that end we would like to include a "Letters to the Editor" section in our next edition. If you have a...

In the World, But Not Of the World

I love being Canadian and living in Canada. We live in a country that for a long time has truly been the TRUE NORTH STRONG AND FREE. For much of my lifetime, Judeo Christian values, although not lived fully, have been assumed and protected. Lately it seems we are moving rapidly away from this as a nation. SOGI (sexual orientation and gender identity) is invading our scho...

What does God think of our Sunday gatherings?

What does God think of your Sunday gathering? A very important question, yet one we often fail to ask.

Psalm 133:1 states, "BEHOLD, how good and pleasant it is when brothers dwell in unity".AMEN. And yet so often it seems that we followers of Christ struggle with one another. In my role for TGC-BC, and in previous roles I have had, there have been many situations where Christians are in conflict. Sadly, in my role as a shepherd of God's family, I believe that one of the gre...

Is it possible to live in unity?

Our desire at TGC-BC as we worship together, is to praise our Lord in complete harmony. What unites us is so much more important than what divides us. We may never agree on all things, but much like a choir that has Sopranos, Tenors, Altos and Bass singers we can combine our voices in beautiful praise to our King. While we may have different voices we can come together on...
