Join us for a week of celebrating our multi-cultural family, catching God’s vision for the world’s unreached people groups right here among us and hearing what God is doing in the world through our global missionaries.
From one man he made all the nations, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he marked out their appointed times in history and the boundaries of their lands. 27 God did this so that they would seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him, though he is not far from any one of us. Acts 17:26-27

Are you registered for Mission Central Conference 2021 yet?
The SERVE stream of the Mission Central Conference is for everyone who loves Jesus and may have thought, “I’ll never be a missionary.”
Come and experience the creative ways that the love of God is being expressed around the world. Grow your faith as you hear stories of the transforming power of Jesus. Be part of the larger Christian community as we intercede for fresh moves of the Spirit all over the earth.
Dr. Joshua Bogunjoko, SIM International Director
Dr. Joshua Bogunjoko brings two decades of leadership and mission experience to his role as the first African leader of SIM, a large missions organisation serving in 80 countries. He is also a family physician with years of experience in surgery. He holds a Masters in Leadership and Management from Briercrest College, Saskatchewan.
Sent by their church in Nigeria, Joshua and his wife, Joanna, also a medical doctor, were among the first missionaries sent outside of Nigeria by the Evangelical Mission Society. They joined SIM in 1995.
Joshua was raised in a nominally Christian family but gave his life to Christ in his mission high school, where he was absorbed into a vibrant student fellowship on campus. He was discipled and prepared for baptism by his Bible teacher, a Canadian missionary, the late Beth Webb.
Towards the end of high school, he heard the Lord challenge him, “What about those dying in hospitals?” Although he had never been to a hospital, he began to pursue medical training, with little thought of missions work.
However, during medical school, he went to a Christian youth conference where the Lord challenged him. After reading a missionary biography, On Our Way Rejoicing by Ingrid Trobisch, he completely surrendered to this calling.
During his 25 years with SIM, he has served aschief medical officer and later director of Galmi Hospital, Niger, West Africa, and as SIM’s Deputy International Director for Europe and West Africa. Since 2013, he has served as the International Director of SIM.
Joshua and Joanna have two grown-up children, Jochebed and Joel. Their life verse comes from Psalm 67:1-3.

When hard times come and it seems as though God is deviating from the plan we assume our life should follow, we’re much more likely to want to tame God, not trust Him. It’s then that we begin to press into our ways and our own timing. No human can carry the weight of being their own god, but so many of us try.
In this 6-session study of 1 & 2 Kings, you can join Lysa TerKeurst in Israel as she honestly reveals the places of distrust in her own heart while exploring the deeply personal applicable Scriptures that will teach us how to truly trust God.

What Is Going On Here
So much that you won’t find it all on this page, but we’ve tried to sum it all up here - just for you!
Cedar Grove is a multi-generational, intercultural congregation with a rich history. Since 1960, this family of God has sought to fulfill the desire of our Father's heart by seeking to reach and love the people of Surrey. We are committed to helping our community grow in their love for God, their love for each other, and their love for those who have yet to come to know Him!
This is How We Do It
Messages Let’s get real … no this is not our slogan or motto … at least not officially, but it does basically describe how our Sunday messages are delivered. God has blessed us with seven pastors who present God’s word to us in a way that is authentic and applicable to us every day! If you haven’t already, you will soon discover the “redemptive power of God and the Bible!” “This is not a normal book - It’s a supernatural book!” says Lead Pastor Kevin Cavanaugh. Service times are 9:00 and 11:00 am.
Worship We encourage our church family to worship and glorify the Lord Jesus Christ every day and in everything they do. Worship is meant to be a part of every aspect of our lives in Christ, whether we are at work, play, school, or church. We prayerfully prepare each week to lead worship in such a way that, by God's anointing, Sunday service will become a springboard into a week of worship for everyone who attends! If you missed last Sunday or can't remember the name of the song you're singing check out Rico’s Playlist.

Okay … we tried but this just does not come close to summing it all up! Check out our website some more and come on Sunday at 9:00 or 11:00 am. See you soon!
His unchanging plan has always been to adopt us into His own family ... through Jesus Christ. Ephesians 1:5 NLT
