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.

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.
