Operation Christmas Child 2020

samaritans purseSamaritan’s Purse is an international relief organization that brings love and hope to struggling people around the world. Operation Christmas Child blesses children in developing countries with shoe boxes filled with gifts in Jesus’ name.

Although this year’s deadline for dropping off shoe boxes was November 22, it’s not too late to support this cause. They still need donations to help pay for shipping and other expenses. There is also an opportunity to support “The Greatest Journey”, a discipleship program offered through local churches to shoe box recipients.

Help Spread the Good News

When the pandemic struck, God gave the directors of Child Evangelism Fellowship of Alberta and Saskatchewan wisdom for how to reach children this summer in ways other than their traditional 5-Day Clubs. This year, they are partnering with UB David and I’ll B Jonathan to reach every household in Saskatchewan, Alberta, and the North West Territories with the Gospel.

Their “Sponsor a Mailbox” program is seeking to place two lessons in every mailbox in these regions – one adult lesson and one child’s lesson – at a cost of just $0.60 per household. Plus, it will present an opportunity to enrol in the David and Jonathan program to receive more Bible lessons through the mail.

With schools being closed, children are hungry for the lesson resources this ministry provides. Consider being a part of spreading the Good News across our region.

Good News Chapel Needs Our Support

good-news-chapel-logoThe Good News Chapel ministers to the outcast, unloved and rejected people in North Central Regina.

Although they are unable to have their regular church services, they are continuing to provide food to the poor on Sundays by providing bagged lunches to those who come by the building, as well as delivering to those who phone the church. They are currently providing food to 100 people each week, but that number could increase as the COVID-19 crisis continues, and as people hear of this service.

How to help:

  • Please consider financially supporting this ministry. Fresh food is purchased weekly to prevent waste, and the cost is higher for bagged lunches than the regular meals. Donations can be made by mailing a cheque for Good News Chapel to P.O. Box 4011 Stn Main, Regina, SK S4P 3R9, or online at goodnewschapel.ca.
  • Donations of non-perishable food will still be gratefully accepted.
  • Help serve food. If you would like to be a part of the food distribution outside of Indigenous Christian Fellowship, call Aaron at 306-526-9630.

Christmas Wish List 2019

Give a gift.
Touch a life.

The Glen Elm Church of Christ is again hosting the Regina Christmas Wish List – an opportunity for  citizens of Regina to express care and compassion during the Christmas season.

The project works like this:

  • Local organizations, working with the impoverished and marginalized of our city, identify individuals and families within their circles, and create concise stories which are posted to the website.
  • Caring citizens read these stories, pledge gifts, and purchase the items they have pledged (new items only), which they then deliver to Glen Elm Church of Christ (1825 Rothwell St., Regina) by 5:00 p.m. on December 19.
  • The gifts are forwarded on to the partnering organizations, who place them in the hands of the clients they identified.
  • Everyone has a merrier Christmas!

To join in, visit Regina Christmas Wish List. All support is greatly appreciated!
