Recent Events Around The Region

To this point, the primary source of our grassroots planning and organizational discussions has been our Facebook page. Here are some events that we have promoted through that platform:

September 10th, 2015: Immigration Symposium: Immigration, Social Justice, & the Common Good: Views from the Okanagan 

September 24th, 2015: Coffee House Discussion: Why the Boat People Effort Worked, a free talk given by one of the men instrumental in changing Canada's approach to the Vietnamese boat people 

October 29th, 2015: Providing Refuge Dinner & Art Auction: By generously donating a buffet Chinese dinner to be held at the church, the owners of Mekong Restaurant, former Vietnamese refugees themselves, are  partnering with our church family to raise funds for our soon arriving Syrian refugee family. Artists from within the church and local arts community are also contributing to an Art Auction during the evening.
