Quilting Group: A group of interested members and friends meet each week on Tuesday mornings to put together quilts that are forwarded on to Canadian Lutheran World Relief (for delivery overseas to refugee camps, etc), transition houses in our city and wherever the need seems to be.
Choir: Each week on Wednesday evenings, trained and not-so-trained voices meet to prepare to serve God by leading the congregation’s worship of God in song. We’re very happy and grateful to have the talented Jonathan Achtzehner as our Choir Director. (Look for the guy in the shorts when it’s -30 and you’ve found Jonathan!)
Funeral Serving Group: A group of men and women are organized to serve those who mourn the loss of a loved one. The group provides for a time of food and fellowship after the funeral service.
Ministry Teams/Committees of the Church: Ministry team/Committee work offers an opportunity to serve in a wide variety of ways: planning and facilitating worship, educational programming, fellowship events, enhancing the appearance and the function of the church building, collecting food for the Food Bank, raising funds for a water project in Ethiopia, sponsoring refugee families, working for social justice in our community and beyond…we’d love to walk and work beside you!
Financial Giving: Each Sunday the offering plates are passed down the rows. People are also able to support the work of the church through PAR (monthly pre-authorized remittance gifts that you can arrange for at our church office). From these gifts our church pays staff salaries, maintains our church building and gives significant gifts to ministries at home and abroad. We thank you for these gifts and we work very hard that they be used carefully and well to the glory of God!
Serving Outside the Church: The church looks to encourage followers of Jesus through worship and education and service in the church, to “be the church” remembering God and generously giving of ourselves, “wherever we live and work, rest and play.” Some of the ministry, serving and growing opportunities we promote are participating in Saturday breakfasts and other activities in support of the Indigenous Christian Fellowship of Regina; making sandwiches for Salvation Army’s Waterston House; supporting the Regina Lutheran Refugee Committee with Newcomer sponsorships and support; visiting and providing worship events monthly in a number of care homes in our city and the surrounding area; and looking to see God in service to our neighbours and community in many other ways.
