Join us and Celebrate Passover and the Spring Feast April 11-15, 2014 in Penticton British Columbia
God commands us to go up to His Feasts three times a year, to present an offering that we may remember Him and all that he has done for us:
Three times a year all your males shall appear before the LORD your God at the place that he will choose: at the Feast of Unleavened Bread, at the Feast of Weeks, and at the Feast of Booths. They shall not appear before the LORD empty-handed. Every man shall give as he is able, according to the blessing of the LORD your God that he has given you. – Deuteronomy 16:16-17 (ESV)
This spring, we will be hosting a variety of services and festivities in beautiful Penticton, British Columbia to celebrate the New Testament Passover, the Hebrew Passover and the first day of Unleavened Bread. We invite you to join us for Celebrate! Passover 2014 on April 11-16.
Starting with a Welcome and Hymn Sing-a-long on April 11, Celebrate! Passover will offer many opportunities to fellowship and worship. Activities include video workshop and filming for our Truth Bytes series, an unleavened bread bake-off, a group lunch and wine tasting (TBC), a buffet dinner for The Night to be Much Observed, a family dance and a potluck dinner. In addition to regular Sabbath services, there will be special services on the Holy Day and a New Testament Passover service.
Services will be held at the Penticton Lakeside Resort. Special rates for accommodation are available at the Golden Sands Resort.

Balaam and the Church
Balaam and the church, what are the lessons for us today? The world is full of irony, like the former KGB head, Vladimir Putin, championing moral conservatism, or the Catholic church espousing religious freedom. Jeff recounts this very old story of double-mindedness, as seen in the biblical account of Balaam.
When we look at our society are we seeing “good,” morally virtuous behaviour? Is our world “good,” a thing of beauty and quality? Knowing that God is the source of all things that are good, both morally and qualitatively, how can we reflect God’s goodness when we walk with Him, though we live in a world that may seem unfamiliar with the goodness of God. What we do is a result of who we are in our hearts and minds, whether good or bad. Will we choose to be good on the inside, as God is good, so we may produce good fruit?

In a world that is contrary to biblical values we are warned of the reality of the adverse environment and its effect of “wearing out the saints,” and thus discouraging, undermining, and frustrating our efforts to serve God wholeheartedly. Are we aware of this danger in our lives and are we prepared to face and overcome the challenge of being “worn out” by the daily difficulties.
God gives his prophetic message to his friends, to those who walk in covenant with Him, like Abraham who did all of God’s will. Are you a friend of God? Are you doing what Jesus has commanded, so that He can give you wisdom and understanding of his prophetic writings?
Overcoming our Fears
We are emotional beings and fear is often a major part of our emotional landscape. Can we gain wisdom without the fear of God? Can we let our fears subvert our faith in God? Let the scriptures help you understand this powerful force in our lives, so that “fear” works to our benefit, and does not undermine us.
