LCBI Chapel

Chapel is a very integral part of our daily life here at LCBI. Every morning we meet for 30 minutes to dive into the Word, and worship through music and prayer. We are very blessed to have the support of local pastors, staff, and students to help lead our chapels. To finish the week off our House Groups alternate leading chapels, directed by our Faith and Life Leaders. The varied speakers and leaders give us many opportunities to grow in our relationship with God. We are very fortunate to have this time to come together and grow in faith as a family.

LCBI Mission Experience Trips

The purpose of LCBI Mission Experience Trips is to allow students of LCBI to have meaningful experiences and live out their faith in a tangible way. Teams have participated in urban outreaches to people living in poverty and experiencing homelessness, packed food for the hungry at food banks, and cleaned up green spaces to beautify neighbourhoods. There has been participation in cultural exchange with local youth and residents, and work in local schools with students of various ages.

Mission Trip 2020 – Vicente Guerrero, Mexico

The LCBI Mission Team has returned from their week of service at Foundations For His Ministry Mission in Vicente Guerrero, Mexico. They had an amazing experience serving alongside other groups from Montana, California and another group from Canada.

They were able to gain an understanding of the work and goals of this ministry through the Mission’s home for 75 children, a separate day care for 120 kids, a men’s rehabilitation centre, a medical clinic, outreach programs and Bible College. They were able to support the staff and their work through assisting with meals, working in the kitchen, painting and doing maintenance projects, weeding and cleaning. And of course there was lots of time spent with the children – in the “cuna” or nursery, at the daycare, in the gym, playing games in the evenings and being able give lots of hugs and smiles all week. The LCBI students were an amazing team with true servant hearts and shared the love of God very openly with each other and with everyone they met. We would like to thank everyone for their prayers, encouragement and support for this mission experience. Our team has come back changed and with full and grateful hearts.

Mission Trip 2019 – Vicente Guerrero, Mexico

One of the team members wrote this about their week: Thank you all for your support and prayers! Leah Adelman took the five of us on a life changing trip. We left San Diego for the orphanage in Vicente Guerrero on February 10th and returned on the 16th. Some highlights from our time spent at the orphanage would be making new friends, going to the Christian rehab center for men called Rancho de Cristo, serving breakfast, going on an outreach to a migrant worker camp, and of course, the amazing smoothies!

On Monday, Thursday, and Friday evenings we got the chance to hangout in the gym with the teenagers who live at the orphanage. This is how we met Enedina, a 16 year old girl who we chose to sponsor. When we got back to San Diego we went to the San Diego Zoo, spent a day walking along the beach, and attended a college basketball game. This was a great way to decompress after an emotional and eye opening experience.

The Highlights of the week included: taking part in an Urban Plunge, giving out sandwiches and hot chocolate to the homelesss and helping at a Compassionate Resource warehouse. Other highlights included helping at a: youth sanctuary, Our Place, Rainbow Kitchen, Carts (soup kitchen), Mustard Seed Warehouse and painting.

LCBI Campus Life – Lift Groups

LCBI continues a tradition of bringing students and staff together into LIFT family groups. LIFT stands for Living In Family Together. Each family consists of a couple of staff “parents” and multiple student “siblings”. Families consist of students from all grades and staff from various departments in the school. Time is set aside each month for LIFT families to spend time together. Bringing staff and students into a family who may not typically do activities together opens up opportunities for new relationships to build and friendships to be forged. It allows students to grow closer to the adults and see them outside of their roles as staff members. It gives everyone a chance to check in with each other and offer support and encouragement. As a family we LIFT one another up. And it is just a chance to have fun! From playing board games, baking cookies, snowmobiling, watching movies or doing a service project, we learn and live as a family. At LCBI we are all family!

Take Out Tuesdays – Enviroment for Personal Growth

LCBI provides students with experiences they would seldom find
in public or city schools.

  • LCBI is an ecumenical Christian school where students receive instruction in an environment supportive of their faith
  • Though students are closely supervised, they are given the freedom to develop the self-reliance necessary for a young person to make the successful transition from home to independence.
  • Students living so closely are able to develop healthy life long relationships.
  • The Take Out Tuesday group comprised of several of our staff and students hosted the Home for Dinner program at Ronald McDonald House
  • Ronald McDonald House staff member Karen Linsley, who is an LCBI Alumnus.

“I cannot even begin tell you how lucky I am to work at such an incredible school with theeee most amazing group of kids. I am so incredibly proud of every single one of them for how hard they all worked and how much they simply showed love to others. This is a peek at today at the Ronald McDonald house in Saskatoon, with my grade 12’s ❤️”

LCBI offers students a campus experience where they can make constructive use of their time inside and outside of class. The gymnasium is always open. Students are encouraged to take part in pick-up games of basketball and volleyball. Sometimes staff and students book the local rink to play hockey. Student musicians can be found playing music with one another in the chapel. And there are several walking trails on campus where students can stroll by the river in summer or cross country ski during winter.

SRC (student council) LENT – 24 HOUR FAMINE

The SRC planned a Lent 24 Hour Famine event in the gym, with 22 students participating. They had worship time, a campfire, sang songs, played games, watched movies and drank a lot of juice. They finished the event with a pancake breakfast around noon on Saturday and then a few gathered for one more movie before heading home. As Lent is a time to reflect on the sacrifices Jesus made for us, the SRC wanted to plan an activity that would encourage fellowship as well as acknowledge, in their own way, Jesus’ sacrifice and the Easter message.
