As Christians we are called to be a light to our world. "...let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven." Matthew 5:16
At Regina Christian School we endeavour to teach our students to be a light in their community. This is why we run a variety of outreach programs to do just this.
Here are some of the ways we give back:
Inner City Mentorship Program
Throughout the year our team will spend time with Kitchener students engaging in a variety of activities: Gym Mania afternoons (an afternoon of fun and games), baking, arts and craft activities, community visits, as well as a spring carnival. Once a year, our team also partners up with the students of Scott Collegiate School and together we put on a similar, but larger mentorship event. This event again includes Kitchener School, as well as two other Regina inner city schools – Seven Stones and Albert Park.
Outside of this partnership, we provide our Inner City Mentorship Team with opportunities to serve with parachurch organizations. Some of our students volunteer their time with The Party, The Burger Bus, Souls Harbour, YFC and other inner city ministry agencies.
Discipleship Vacation Bible School
RCS students put on a yearly Discipleship Vacation Bible School for kids from Good News Chapel and Healing Hearts Church.
RCS students do prayer walks in certain parts of Regina.
Food Bank/Salvation Army
RCS students sort food for the less fortunate.
High School Choir
The RCS high school choir sings at Wascana Rehab and at various care homes and seniors residences throughout the city.
Sings at Wascana Rehab for their Christmas Family Dinner.
Kindergarten students visit the seniors residents of Precious Villa. Did crafts, games and singing in their winter visit; made ornaments & brought them cookies in their Christmas visit and planted flowers, (and did chalk and bubbles) in their spring visit.
