A gathering of people seeking to walk the way of Christ in the world, sharing our story alongside God's story and discovering intersections between that surprise, challenge and comfort. The Way is an ancient practice in the Christian church, which was founded in people's homes gathered to break bread around a meal. The Way partners people and invites them into the way of Christ through a series of small group gatherings around a meal and several rites during worship, in which the gathered community prays for and gifts the Way participants. Please see our Activites and Events calendar.

In 2011, a small group of women, who truly enjoyed sewing and wanted to make a difference, decided to revive the TLC Quilters group. There had been a group in the '70's and '80's: a time of polyester fabric and fluffy batting and way before rotary cutters, plastic rulers and computerized sewing machines! While the technology and techniques may have changed over time, the enthusiasm of the group has not. Now, the repetoire of items sewn includes not only quilts, but table runners, bags, casserole carriers, aprons and Christmas stockings.
Through generous donations of fabric from people, from both within and outside the church, the group has been able to: make quilts for CLWR for shipment overseas; raise funds for the CLWR "Gifts from the Heart" program; raise funds for the Neo-natal Intensive Care Unit at Vancouver Childrens' Hospital and Pregnancy Options in Surrey, BC; and make baby quilts, which have been donated to both Pregnancy Options, and the Fraser Valley Quilters' Guild (for their program of giving to the Neo-natal Intensive Care Unit at Vancouver Childrens' Hospital).
The TLC Quilters meet on Mondays at 9:30am until approximately 3:00pm, from September through the beginning of June (or whenever the start of gardening season happens!) The meetings are listed on our Activities and Events calendar. You are welcome to come and join in the fun: all you need is a serviceable machine, basic sewing supplies and your enthusiasm.
In 2016, about a dozen ladies started a prayer shawl ministry, which is expanding and now includes other items such as scarves and dish clothes. They meet on Mondays at 10am, along with the quilters. Even if you have never knitted before, someone can show you how. There is good fellowship and lots of laughter. Bring you needles, some inexpensive, soft yarn and a lunch.
Knitting is listed on our Activities and Events calendar.
Youth meet twice monthly after worship, from 12:15 pm - 1:30 pm, on the first and third Sunday of each month, to discuss the scripture using online resources. Bring your device! Friends welcome. Lunch is provided.
