The Lord loves a cheerful giver. One of the best ways to show your love for God is to help those in need. In the parable of the Sheep and the Goats Jesus told his disciples in Matthew 25:31-46, it shows that giving should be one of the virtue a Christian should have.

Donations for the Regina fire victims
At the moment, we are seeking kitchen and house hold items. Bathroom items such as towels and clothes. Toiletries are always things that people need. I did not get a call back today to give me the ages of any of the children, so we have accepted all ages from infant up to 18; as well as the parents of course. Furniture will be accepted, but we will get donors in touch with families directly to deliver to the new suites. For further information, feel free to contact Josie at Jo’s Youth Support. If you would like to know about the program or about any other programs run by Jo’s, again feel free to ask as many questions as you need.

VICTIMS OF TYPHOON HAIYAN – PHILIPPINES
If you have been listening to the news in the past few days, you would have heard about the disaster in the Philippines due to Typhoon Haiyan. Many have died and many more displaced from their homes. The Filipino Community in Regina are gathering relief items for the victims such as:
– Canned foods (all non-perishable food items), – Clothing, – Blankets, – Towels
We learned that these items will be sent to the Philippines National Red Cross Headquarters via a courier company that is currently offering free shipment for donations to the Philippines. As a church and community we need to lend a hand of help to “our brothers and sisters” in the Philippines who need our help at this time of need.
If you are in Regina and you want to donation items as listed above, please drop such things off OR if you are not able and/or if you live or come to church in White City, our church van will be unlocked so that such items can be dropped into the van.
