The Kindness Project (“TKP”) has been funded with an allocation of
$10,000 from the Joan Spencer Endowment that will provide grants to Cappers to assist them in building upon the vision and initiative already evident at a grassroots level within our actively-engaged and missionally-minded community.

As part of Kim’s current sermon series, we practiced a kind of ancient prayer called “The Examen” (sometimes referred to as “Consolations and Desolations” at Cap. It is a technique of prayerful reflection on the events of the day in order to detect God’s presence and discern God’s direction for us.

Jake Penner’s Rocking Horses
Jake Penner was one of CapChurch’s founding elders. Over 40 years ago Jake was part of a bible study group on the North Shore that invited others to join and soon became Capilano Christian Community Church. One thing that characterized Jake was a love of children which he carried into his professional life as a school principal. Jake was also an avid woodworker both of furniture and houses. In the life of CapChurch, Jake undertook to bless children and families by building rocking horses. He would welcome a family into his home for lunch and then surprise them and their little one with their very own personalized horse.
