The Prairie Hope Women’s Centre

teen challengeIn 1958, Pastor David Wilkerson reached out to troubled street youth in New York City. Today, Teen Challenge is a 12-month, faith-based, residential drug and alcohol rehabilitation program that is part of a network of over 13 Teen Challenge Centres across Canada and more than 1,100 worldwide.

The program has a strong faith-based approach, and offers spiritual, academic and vocational training that helps equip individuals to return to society as responsible citizens.

To help more women trapped in the vicious cycle of addiction, in 2019 they are opening the Prairie Hope Women’s Centre in Hague, SK. It will have room for 26 women, and include dorms, a chapel, classrooms, a dining hall, counselling spaces, and provisions for recreation, exercise, and work.

To learn more about Teen Challenge, and to support their programs, please check out www.teenchallenge.ca.

Please Note: Since the PHW Centre is not yet operational, it is not listed on the website, but you can view the brochure here.

Good News Chapel Unexpected Expense

good-news-chapel-logoGood News Chapel, a ministry in North Central Regina, recently incurred a large unexpected expense.

They have a fifteen-passenger van that they use to pick up individuals and families who would not be otherwise able to attend church, for visits to the reserve they minister on, and for other church activities.

Unfortunately, a bearing broke and destroyed the transmission in the van. Thankfully, they were able to get it fixed quickly, but the expense of approximately $4,500 still needs to be covered. If you feel led to give towards this need, you can do so at www.goodnewschapel.ca/donate.

All donations are greatly appreciated.

Christmas Wish List

christmas wish listRead a story.
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!

Please Note: They have upgraded the website this year, and are still working on some improvements. If the website is temporarily down, please be sure to check back later.

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
