Pastor's Message - Chris Kibble

Writer Robert J. Morgan comments ‘Amazon keeps track of our highlights. When e-book owners mark sentences, the online retailer knows and notes them. Recently Amazon released a list of the most popular passages in some of its bestselling books, such as The Hunger Games, the Harry Potter series, and Pride and Prejudice.

Also released, was the most highlighted passage in the Bible. America's favorite biblical portion might be expected to be John 3:16, Psalm 23, or the Lord's Prayer in Matthew 6:9-13. But, no, it was a less prominent text, but one that strikes a deep chord in today's worried world. It was Philippians 4:6-7: ‘Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus’ .

Praise God that we have a God who will give us peace in challenging times! 

Special Reopening Announcement
Sunday, November 28 at 10am

We are excited to welcome you back in person to West Vancouver Baptist Church on Sunday, November 28, 2021!   Those who are fully vaccinated (required for age 12 and up) will gather together in the Sanctuary and those who are not vaccinated, or others if they so choose, in the Fireside Room. Our Farsi group will be in the Stage Room. The wearing of masks is recommended and, when seated, we would encourage a ‘respectful’ distance between family groups.

There’ll be a budget chat immediately after the service   We won’t initially be having refreshments after the service, but by all means, fellowship after the budget chat either in the foyer for the vaccinated, the Fireside Room for the unvaccinated, or the Stage Room for the Farsi group.
