Who We Are

Our Reflection

This past summer we celebrated 75 years of God’s care upon our church. The decades past have built a rich foundation for the decades to come.  A typical Sunday morning will find a congregation of 250 in a contemporary service, with a spectrum of worship responses. But typical is not our goal. We long, younger and older, to engage with God in ways that convey His worth and our delight in being His children. We are not a “once a week” family. Opportunities to connect, learn and serve are offered through out the week. We are connected locally and serve globally. Our local partnerships include two other congregations which share heart and space with us. Can a Korean Presbyterian Church and a Congolese Pentecostal Church co-exist with a MB prairie congregation? Come any Sunday and see! Our local and global perspective for missions is deeply rooted in our DNA. It’s evident in our prayers, our going and our giving. We count our people, facility, land and location as gifts to be stewarded for God.

Our Home

Not only does Regina have one of the fastest growth rates in Canada, but it was also named as one of the best cities in Canada to find employment in 2016. It is also a “top ten” city for new immigrants. But our perspective is not defined by Stats Canada. You need “feet on the ground” to realize that we are surrounded by a growing community, largely made up of young families and those new to Canada.  We partner with local ministries to care for Regina and develop relationships through the University of Regina and our two sister congregations to address the practical needs of those adjusting to a new life in Regina. We recognize that God has placed before us ample opportunity to be a congregation which welcomes people not just to Canada but to Christ.

Our Heart

We realize that we are in transition. We are not simply “between” lead pastors, but we are “before” a new chapter of God’s story among us. We celebrate what has been and are excited by what can be. We are not blind to the challenges ahead. We’ve been able to name and own the places where God invites us to prepare for what’s new.  Here is our heart.  We long to be a people led by the Spirit. The simple motions of Church are not sufficient. We crave the reality of His presence. We want to deepen and expand our connections as a family of faith. We want to embrace His Word through clear proclamation and personal submission. We look to give ourselves to mission corporately and individually. We want to smile, both at our past with appreciation, and at our future with hope.
