Kids Born: 2009-2014
Cost: $35 per child (maximum charge of $70 per family)

$35 Registration fee includes: soccer ball, t-shirt, water bottle, wrist band and "Wrap-Up" Family BBQ.

Every summer, Sardis Fellowship enjoys hosting VBS Soccer Camp. It is a highlight for us as we hope it is for you too. Each evening begins on the field with Team Leaders and Helpers guiding their teams through basic soccer skills and playing games in a non-competitive, fun environment. Our camp also includes "The Zone", which is our indoor program featuring action packed songs with the "Tim Tam Slams", dramas and Bible lessons about God's love shown through His son, Jesus Christ.

Everit and Alice are two normal siblings - to put it lightly - they have a hard time getting along sometimes. Tempers often flare as they try to beat one another in video games - until something unusual happens. A new user called "Player One" logs onto their server and invites them into the video game console which launches them into the most epic adventure of their lives! Watch as "Wrench it Rod" helps them transform into new characters and hop into different games, each of which they have to beat before they can escape the console and make it back into the real world. Watch as they learn tons of lessons about God's great love for us! This love is so great that it just might help them love each other! See it all unfold at this years VBS!

Families with children under 5 are welcome to bring their kids for free fun activities at "Kid's Central" happening throughout the week on the East side of the building. Activities include bouncy castles, activity tables, face painting, etc. (Please note that while volunteers will be present, parent supervision is required for these activities.)

To register please drop off your completed form and money at the Church Office during the week on Monday-Friday from 9am-2pm, or mail registration and cheque payable to "Sardis Fellowship Baptist Church". (Sorry, no phone, fax or online registrations.) REGISTRATION CLOSES JUNE 27TH.

Everyone is also invite to a HOT DOG BBQ for the whole family on Friday night and Soccer Sunday on July 7th at 10am, where we will have a kid-friendly Worship Service and see the conclusion of our VBS Drama.

Can’t wait to see you all on the field!

Pastoral Staffing Meeting & Lunch

Leadership Transition PPT.png

Thank you for the prayerful support you have given to our leadership as we have been seeking God’s wisdom for the future pastoral staff of Sardis Fellowship. We are excited to share with you that through a patient and prayerful process, God has led us to what we believe His plan is for filling the pastoral ministry roles of our Church Family. God has led us to have three associate pastors, Rob Shauf overseeing Disciple Making, Tim Voth overseeing Family Life and Eugene Braila overseeing Administration in a part time role. Following the Worship Service on April 7th will be a light lunch, which we ask your help in bringing a plate of sandwiches to share, and then a presentation outlining more detailed information about the roles and the stories of how God has led these three men into further pastoral ministry. Childcare will be provided.

Ladies, please join us for our first Sardis Women event of the year!

We will kick off 2019 hearing from guest speaker Angi Tufnell as she shares on the topic: “Why would I want to read my Bible?”. Here is a short bio on our speaker:

My name is Angi Tuffnell. I live in Abbotsford with my baby-delivering husband and 5 kids ranging from 4-16. Life is full!
One of my favourite things to do it to teach women how to study the Bible. We run a women’s bible study in Abbotsford that has about 250 women on a Monday night putting in 5 hours of homework a week! One of my greatest desires and passions in life is for women to know how to read and study the life giving active and living Word so that they know and love God more and want to give their lives to Him fully.  The truth is, in the church-dense Fraser Valley many of us know stories from the Bible and we have many Bibles on our shelves but if we’re honest it can feel dull and hard and uninteresting to read.
My heart for our time together would be to tell you a bit of my story and then to dig into learning HOW to study God’s Word. It will be interactive and practical AND I pray an experience in what the Living Word really is!
Through 12 years now of studying His Word He has helped me to love and trust Him more. He has taken a fear-filled, anxiety driven woman and filled me with trust and confidence and hope in Him.
I can’t wait to meet with you.

We hope you will join us, and bring a friend!
