  • Elder's Update | May 2022

    As the sun finally begins to shine, many of us look forward to pausing from our regular schedules and commitments for summer plans and activities. The Elders also want to pause and reflect on where we’ve come this year and what lies ahead at Central. Presently, Pastors Matt and Eldon are taking their 7-year sabbaticals. Would you join us in praying for much needed rest and rejuvenation for these men and their families? We continue to also lift our other pastors, staff, and their families in prayer after a taxing couple of years in ministry. read more

  • Orange Juice & Discernment

    For some reason, my parents always bought pulp-filled orange juice when I was young. It may have been one of the worst experiences of childhood to start drinking a delicious and refreshing glass of orange juice only to have it completely tainted by random bits of disgustingness. What a disappointment! read more
  • Missions Update - The Lanna Project | April 2022

    This project serves several churches in Southeast Asia, with a goal of continuing to expand the Kingdom through self-sustainable church planting. The Lanna Project seeks to develop leadership to sustain long-term vision, health and growth and to empower the church through business and agriculture to begin to plant their own churches without foreign financial assistance. The Lanna project currently serves five churches, and feels called to plant two more in the coming year. read more

  • Elder's Update | April 2022

    This past week, we were able to remember these words and reflect on the gatherings at Central’s campuses across the Fraser Valley where the good news of Easter could be shared with so many. Following two long years of varying restrictions, the beginning of April brought with it the all-clear for Central to meet once again unhindered and at full capacity. Attendance for Easter services reached over 1,200 across our campuses, and even saw over 150 people turnout in Harrison for an Easter Egg Hunt outreach to the community. So many were able to hear, many for the first time, of the Love of God, the sacrifice Jesus made for each and every one of us, and how He has overcome the power of death. read more

  • Elder's Update | March 2022

    It has been a busy month at our church as most regular activities are in full swing. Also, we recently wrapped up a four-week Foundations class on doctrine that happened on Sunday nights. It started with eating a meal together as a church family. It was a special time enjoying fellowship and amazing food with each other, as well as great teaching on the core doctrine. There was time for discussion with one another which was great. I was also reminded through these discussions that while many of us disagree on secondary issues, we are united in Jesus and are so thankful we ultimately put all our hope in Him! That is such an encouragement. read more

  • Live in the 23rd Psalm

    Many many years ago I remember sitting in my grandparents living room with my grandpa. It was always very warm in that little space which often induced sleepiness. He was a quiet man who struggled to hear, which made robust dialogue challenging. Trying to make conversation, I asked him what his favourite Bible verse was and he responded by saying it was Psalm 23. read more

  • The Holy Trinity

    When I was mapping out our preaching schedule for 2021/2022 I knew I wanted to teach a series on The Doctrine of the Trinity after reading Michael Reeves' wonderful book, Delighting In The Trinity this past summer. Precisely because God is a Trinity we get a clearer picture of what God is like in the movements Before Creation, In Creation, In Salvation, and In The Christian Life. read more

  • After The Storm

    Last week. The rains came loud and fierce and brought flood waters to our doorstep. For many, the stream never knocked but burst inside uninvited. The rains brought waves into barns and basements and living rooms. Sinking highways, railways and dirt roads. The waters lifted pavement and loosened foundations until they crumbled down mountain sides. Cattle and poultry succumbed to the deluge around them. So did abandoned vehicles and farming machinery. A 24 hour downpour gave birth to a torrent of ruin. read more
