Comox Valley and
Campbell River SDA Churches

Pastor Mario Di Lione uplifting Jesus Christ during the Worship Service

Sabbath May 19, 2018 - While the world was focusing on the royal wedding in England the members of the Campbell River and Comox Valley Churches witnessed the vows of love and devotion pledged to our Lord Jesus Christ by four new Heavenly Family Members. The district event, which was held at the Comox Valley Church was a blessing to all who attended including the friends and family of the new members, some of whom had never set foot in an SDA Church before. Each visitor was gifted with a Steps to Christ book and a specially designed memorial card to mark the occasion. 

The Worship Service and the Baptisms were lovingly performed by our District Pastor, Pastor Mario Di Lione. The vows were read by First Elder Dan Johnson of the Comox Valley Church and First Elder Tim Miller of the Campbell River Church. We were also blessed by a special guest speaker from the B.C. Conference: Vice President of Finances, Jeff Klam and just as the Lord would have us all working in one accord, everyone from both Churches had a special roll to play in this blessed event.
