A tangible display of God's renewing power

Upcoming Events

See below for various congregational notifications (funerals, service cancellations, etc.), concerts, and special events.

On Sunday July 7, in the loving presence of his family, our brother Fred Herfst died and was called into the presence of Jesus Christ, our Lord. He was 76 years old.

Fred and Ann have been members of our congregation for close to 50 years. Fred will be remembered for his wise, calm, measured, thoughtful, and kind-hearted presence in our community. He faithfully served in a variety of leadership roles over his many years–Council, Pastoral Elders, Stephen’s Ministry–as well as on various teams, committees, and task forces. A master at writing policies, governance, and bylaws, he delighted in good process, prudence, and orderliness. His gifts were shared well beyond his family and congregation. Believing deeply that the Kingdom of Christ was to impact all areas of life, he gave himself fully to serving and supporting Christian and Independent schools in BC. He will be remembered by many in our province as a champion of parental choice in education and as a man of faithfulness, integrity, and good-will.

Married just short of 48 years (July 10) he will be deeply missed by Ann, and their children, Richard and Marie, Monique and Ted, Dennis and Theresa, and all of his grandchildren: Brian, Krystal, Derek, Michele, David, Eric, Noah, Nathan, Samantha, and Matthew.

The Memorial Service will be held on Saturday July 20 at 2:00pm at New Westminster Christian Reformed Church.

A private interment will take place at 11:00am.

We extend our condolences and prayers to the entire Herfst family. We will miss Fred dearly, but are grateful to Jesus Christ for the hope we have in His resurrection.

Summer Evening

Video Teaching Series:

“Cultural Engagement

and Scripture”

This summer, we will be learning from a series of video teachings from Dr. Darrell L. Bock 

How do we live together well? How do we culturally engage in the manner that’s best for everyone, considering the diversity that we live in the midst of? This series will guide us through cultural engagement and Scripture and help us to analyze the cultures that we live in and the ways they structure our lives.

Some of the topics that will be covered in this series:

Each teaching will be followed by the time of discussion led by Pastor Andrew

Dr. Darrell L. Bock is senior research professor of New Testament studies and executive director of cultural engagement at Dallas Theological Seminary. He also serves as editor-at-large for Christianity Today.

Vacation Bible School (VBS)

We will not be offering VBS this summer.

Details of other events during the summer will be announced on the website.

Please check with Jenny at (604) 521-0111 if you have any questions.

Women’s Thursday Fellowship

We had our last meeting on June 6, 2019, and will not be meeting during the summer. Looking forward to seeing you all again in September! And if you have any questions or want to initiate a get-together during the summer, please let Lin or Pastor Jun know! (hkim@nwcrc.ca)

Starting September 2019: Every Thursday, 1:00PM-2:45PM

Date: To Be Announced

We’re inviting moms to join our Thursday group at 1:00 pm-2:45 pm

In 2018, we studied a series of 9 subjects/chapters on “Sermon on the Mount” (workbook and DVD by Jen Wilkins).  We will announce the topics closer to Sept, 2019!

All English levels are fine as we will go thru the series slowly and will have it translated if needed. So far, we have Indonesian, Korean and Mandarin speaking moms in the group, and we’re open for more to join.

Children are welcome to tag along in the group. The main focus of our fellowship is to provide a place for young women and moms to encourage one another through fellowship.
