West Kelowna, BC – “Christmas in our Community” is the third annual event sponsored by Kelowna’s Gospel Mission and Powers Creek Community Church, to help bring Christmas to West Kelowna’s friends and neighbours. It is being held at Westbank Lions Community Centre, 2466 Main Street, West Kelowna, beginning at 5:30 p.m. on Saturday, November 25th, 2017.  This is a free event.

There will be live music, entertainment, plus crafts along with a traditional roast beef dinner.  Kelowna’s Gospel Mission will provide and prepare the food while Powers Creek Community Church will provide the space, entertainment and volunteers. The Central Okanagan Food Bank Westside helped to distribute tickets to the community. There are still plenty of tickets available and last minute guests will be welcomed.

Dave Barbour, Lead Pastor at Powers Creek Community Church said, “This event started three years ago as a way to bring people together and share in our community.  We do what Jesus invited us to do. We want to bless people in the community.”

Randy Benson, Executive Director of Kelowna’s Gospel Mission, said “There are many people who are with out a home, alone or simply can’t afford to have a Christmas dinner.  We are grateful to be able to share a beautiful Christmas experience with everyone in our Westside community. We appreciate Power’s Creek Community Church and The Central Okanagan Food Bank for partnering with us to make this event possible.”
