Church anniversary

Cariboo Bethel Church celebrated its 50th anniversary Sept. 25–27, 2015. In 1963, Neil Isaac began leading services for some 30 people in a Williams Lake, B.C., community hall. Cariboo Bethel MB Church formally organized in 1965 as a member of the B.C. MB conference and hired Paul Unger as full-time pastor. The next year, they broke ground for a 200-seat building, completed in 1967, followed by several expansions. A 1983 complex with a 650-seat sanctuary, banquet facilities and Christian education wing replaced the building destroyed by fire. Cariboo is a key supporter of neighbouring Camp Likely, has members serving actively on the boards of BCMB camps ministry and MB Mission, and is a sending church for Dave and Louise Sinclair-Peters. Currently, lead pastor Jeremy Vogt and associate Terry Fehr serve the congregation with an average attendance of 250 under the banner, “Life-transforming relationship with Jesus.”
