Praying for all the kids and youth that are going back to school, university, college this week. We pray God’s protection over you as you begin this new year. It is certainly not the normal way to begin, for some it’s at home online, for others it’s half and half and for some it’s back to school full time. But be assured of God’s faithfulness and His unfailing love for each of you. Philippians 4:13 “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”

Sharing on behalf of the family:

It is with saddened hearts that we say good-bye to our amazing mother, wife and friend, Karen Zabinsky. Karen passed away on Sunday, August 16th at home with her family. Karen was born in Prince Rupert, BC and is survived by her husband Peter, her children: Ramona Ganyo (Joe), Kathleen Spalek (Mieteck) and John Schievink (Cindy Trask), her 7 grandchildren and 3 great grandchildren. She also leaves behind a large extended family and many close friends.

Karen will forever be remembered as having a kind, caring and loving spirit. She believed in a “purpose driven life” and that meant a life of service to her family, friends, church and her community. Karen was passionate about serving and giving back. She was very involved in the Salvation Army church in Campbell River where she was always willing to lend a caring hand whether it was preparing meals at the lighthouse or for someone in need, volunteering on the Emergency Disaster Service Team where she worked at the emergency relief centre during the Kelowna fires or working many cold mornings with her husband Peter for the Christmas Kettle campaign. She taught Sunday school and spent many hours planning crafts, games and lessons for the children she loved dearly and that gave her such joy. Karen also spent many years living and working in Tahsis where she built many long and lasting relationships and served as a municipal councillor and volunteered as a girl guide leader. She loved the outdoors fishing and hunting with family and especially loved to spend time in her garden tending to her flowers and providing a bounty of vegetables to all that were in need.

Due to Covid-19 there will be a small private service only. In lieu of flowers we ask that you consider a donation to the Salvation Army Church. Donations can be sent to: The Salvation Army, Ocean Crest Community Ministries, 291 McLean Street, Campbell River, BC V9W 2M4.

[08/23/20]   Wonderful time of worship this morning! Remember we are still under construction🙂 Have a blessing filled week #blessed

Happy birthday to OCCC worship leader John Floor and to Keith Cousins, we missed you today at worship practice. Happy birthday to you both and God bless

Serving Our Community

Ocean Crest Community Ministries is truly blessed to work with such dedicated volunteers, employees, donors, guest, and church congregation ! The salvation Army has been in Campbell River for 26 years, and each year our strong community partnerships has provided us the resources to help those who need a helping hand through the year. This year our goal is set to raise $100,000 for Campbell River and we aim to raise $20,000 in Port Hardy.

“Great way for family and friends to have fun and help someone at the same time - I am honored to call myself a Kettle Volunteer. My goal this year is 8 shifts - Pastor Keith”

To join the team, please give Tami a call 250-204-3756 or signup online http://signup.com/go/uLnRDCK -

Thank you in advance friends.

In 2017, our Kettle campaign raised $100, 114 in Campbell River, and over $17,000 in Port Hardy. 100% of those donations went help our community in 2018.

Many families can not afford to feed their family three meals day. Our Community Meals help families by providing healthy lunch program.

Last year 146 volunteers helped us reach our goal, and this helped us help over 5000 people
