Summer Missionary Program

5-day clubsA Division of Child Evangelism Fellowship

Every summer, young people go out and share the gospel across Alberta and Saskatchewan through the 5-Day Club ministry. To learn more about the 5-Day Clubs, please visit 5dayclubs.com.

Many of these Summer Missionaries are post-secondary students and have chosen to give their summer to God to reach boys and girls for Jesus Christ. The Summer Missionary Program will help them with their support-raising so they are able to return to school in the fall.

CEF has set a goal of raising $160,000 for the project. Currently, 59% of the total support needed has been raised. You have an opportunity to help sponsor a Summer Missionary in a constituency of your choice. To see the map, and check the progress of the fundraising in your area, visit summermissionary.org/sponsor.

Donations may be made online at either of the above websites, or for Saskatchewan regions, by mailing a cheque to:
CEF of Saskatchewan
74 Marquis Crescent
Regina, KS S4S 6J9

Please Note: If the funds exceed what is needed in that constituency, then they will be used in one needing more funding.

Regina Supercars

Cars for Single Moms

Regina Supercars is a faith-based organization whose goal is to contribute to the security and stability of single mothers and their families by providing them with a vehicle that meets their transportation needs.

Often, low-income single moms can manage their day-to-day expenses and provide for their family’s regular needs, but the initial cost of a reliable vehicle can be beyond their reach. A vehicle can make a significant difference to that family.

You can make a real difference by making a contribution today! Regina Supercars operates on donations of:

  • money
  • vehicles
  • automotive services

To find out more about how you can help, please visit reginasupercars.com, or call Andrew at 306-789-2814.

Volunteer Information Session

Volunteer posterAt CityKidz Regina, they believe every child should have the right to have hope, dream big, and have a positive future. To accomplish this, they provide children living in under-privileged communities a Saturday afternoon program, free of charge, through which the children learn love, hope and faith. This is followed up with weekly home visits.

By volunteering at CityKidz, you will impact the lives of these children, and help to build the next generation of leaders within our schools, communities, city and province. You will also be part of the solution to the rising criminal activity in our city, as research has shown that a child’s behaviour will change significantly when there is even one positive adult figure in his or her life.

Healing Hearts Ministries – Project 300

Healing Hearts Ministry
Healing Hearts Ministry

As members of Healing Hearts Ministries, Nick & Vivian Helliwell serve in Regina’s aboriginal and inner city communities. Having lived in Regina most of their lives, they offer insightful, empathetic perspectives on the street-level and First Nations ministries.

In addition to serving as Healing Hearts’ Pastor of Men’s Ministry, Nick’s ministry includes serving as a half-time chaplain at the Regina Provincial Corrections Centre, being a chaplain with the Regina Qu’Appelle Health District, and visiting the Community Training Residence where men from the jail transition back to the community. To learn more about the Helliwells’ involvement in the community, please click here.

Earlier this year, Nick and Vivian suffered a personal tragedy when their eldest daughter passed away. They subsequently took in her seven children, and their other daughter plus her son moved in to help. With the foster child they already had, they now have twelve members in their household.

The stress and financial strain of the situation contributed to Nick having a heart attack in October. Being unable to work for a month enhanced their financial difficulties. They need our support! A one-time donation would be a blessing, but what they really need is ongoing monthly support. Please pray about whether you can help these valuable members of our community.
