We are the church all week long... but we try to get together at least once a week at our celebration service at 10:45. ) You can even check us out in advance by listening to our services, watching the video, or reading the bulletins. Just click the menus above.
If you happen to have extra garden produce that you would like to share with others, feel free to bring it Sunday mornings to place on the "Share God's Bounty" table in the fellowship hall.
If you need some garden produce, please help yourself!
Our only request is that all produce be brought, and taiken, on Sunday mornings so that no one has to take on the responsibility of looking after it during the week.

Stephen O., chaplain volunteer, stopped by our church office this week and asked if anyone could donate some of the following items for inmates at the Regina Correctional Centre. Such materials help the prisoners to spend their time in a more meaningful way:
- National Geographic or Guidepost magazines
- Word search, sudoku, or crossword puzzle books
- Decks of cards (new)
- Pens, colored pencils
If you bring these donations to our office, Stephen will pick them up and deliver them to the correctional centre next time he visits there.
"Remember those in prison..." (Hebrews 13:3)

Bringing People Into The Caring Community Of Christ
August 26th, 2015 - "Road Trip" Edition
Road trip! Most summers include one or more road trips to visit relatives, to go to weddings, or to visit far off vacation places. When I drive, I often think of the way transportation was handled in the past. I think of the aboriginal people who literally walked the entire North and South America, settling along the way. From the rugged northwest and the Bering Strait all the way to Newfoundland and the southern tip of Chile. Mountains, plains, deserts, rain forests. Then the European settlers who plunked down in various places, eking a living in log cabins or sod houses, often many miles away from another living human being.
Those people formed the foundation of transportation that we see today. Often following similar paths, our modern day highways crisscross the nation, allowing us to get to places hundreds of kilometers away. What would have taken our forefathers days and weeks....now takes us hours. "Going to town" was an all day...or two day affair. Now we do it in 15 minutes and only to get a coffee.
We do stand on the shoulders of those who have come before us, especially in regards to our infrastructure here in Canada. Spiritually, we also do the same. We build upon, first and foremost, the Bible and foundation given to us there. But then we gratefully accept the input from others who have come before. Augustine. Clement. Ambrose. Origen. Calvin. Zwingli. Luther. Lewis. Chesterton. Lloyd-Jones. Carey. MacDonald. Graham. Keller (both Helen and Tim).... and the list of men and women goes on. No, these folks didn't write scripture, but their insights and wisdom have been a blessing to us here in 2015.
Next road trip, thank God for those who laid the paths we drive today...and those whose spiritual paths we also follow.
