Christmas Toy Drive 2020

At the REACHING OUT generosity campaign from April to June, we thank the Lord for enabling us to donate more than 900 pieces of food items to the local food bank!

As 2020 is coming to a close, we are supporting the Richmond Christmas Fund by running a toy drive to bless the needy families at Richmond.

Blessing the Community 

a new step of faith in May

(6/10/2020)

When the world is in darkness, do Christians focus on self-preservation? Or do we see it as an opportunity to become the light of the world? Will we step up to share God's goodness and generosity to many people in need?

Reaching Out is more than just another sermon series, but a generosity campaign for the needy in the community.

Thank you for your generous gifts, the total amount of regular donations being received in May 2020 was $98,046.80! As planned, the amount has been donated among the following frontline organizations:

* Union Gospel Mission
* Compassion Canada 
* Doctors Without Borders
* Richmond Hospital Foundation

This morning, we made our fifth trip to Richmond Food Bank! Since the beginning of April, the church has donated more than 900 pieces of food, including rice, noodles, and canned food to the food bank. Thank you brothers and sisters for all your contributions! Although our food drive has ended, we encourage you to drop off your food donations directly at Richmond Food Bank (5800 Cedarbridge Way, Richmond)

 

   

 

Thank you note from Greater Vancouver Food Bank

We want to add our heartfelt thanks to the Koinonia Evangelical Church for your $10,000 donation in April! We are so very grateful. These funds will go a long way towards providing healthy food to those in need each week. As you can imagine, things are changing daily for us in terms of dealing with new challenges presented by the COVID-19 health crisis. We have been able to secure 5 new food distribution locations across the 4 cities we support. Without question we expect to see a significantly increased need for food in the months ahead. We are now beginning to purchase a large amount of high protein, non-perishable food to see us through the months ahead, and we cannot thank you enough for your support.
