A Letter From Karla and Gavin

Dear Friends and Family, Here we are at the end of one year and the cusp of another. As we reflect on 2014, we are moved to express our gratitude to you. We wake up and get to do what we are doing because of the great love and support we receive from you. We continue to serve with the faithful pioneers of Simple Church Alliance. We have been trusting God together with this endeavor for four years.

711 Summer Camp for Boys and Girls

Simple Church Alliance @ 7-11 Camp – July 7-12 I wanted to let folks know that we have a reserved a spot at 7/11 Camp this summer for Simple Church Alliance! 7/11 Camp, in my opinion, is one of the best run camps for boys and girls ages 7-11 in the region.  Guy has attended for two summer sessions.  He really enjoyed his experiences.  This year we are looking forward to Emma joining him.  The camp is modeled after Kanakuk camps and is filled with adventure and small group Bible discussions.  Having run camps for 11 years with FCA, I’m most impressed with the attention to detail and the high standard and training that is required of the camp counselors. ...

What About The Kids? – Children in Simple Church

Certainly much could be said here about the theory of Sunday school and child-segregated church programs, but for this post I would like to stick to some practical tips on how you can creatively involve your children in simple church gatherings. Many of these we have done over the past two years and some are a collection of great ideas from others in simple church that I hope to implement in the near future! Pray & Prepare: I once saw a group of kids go from play mode to listening mode during the...
