Praise & Prayer

  • Pray for five men who left their respective recoveries prematurely.  The lure of spring and/or the clarion call of ‘friends’ was found too difficult to ignore, yet all five have wonderful potential.  The Lord knows their names, but we will use first 5 letters of the alphabet:

    “A” is older and has deep health issues.  Physical life is tough.   “B” is young, recently baptized and on fire for the Lord.  We miss him and hope he stays on track and is safe.   “C” is a super nice guy and his early departure is bewildering.   “D” has wrestled for years and was in such a great place spiritually.  Working physically hard he reached for strength and energy to the wrong source.   “E” has been through so much. (In fact, all five have deep traumas in life.)  This man was scheduled to serve the Lord in a place of refuge.  Please fervently pray that these men find the strength to be humble and desire to walk with the Lord, above all else!  We love each one.

  • Pray for our upcoming Radio-thon hosted by CHVN 95.1 F.M.  There will be two 12 hour slots from 6am to 6pm, on June 16th & 17th.  We will be focussing on celebrating God and the work He is doing at UGM.  We simply want to use the time to bring glory to His Name.  Please pray that we are successful in honouring the Lord.

  • Praise God for continued protection from the virus among our homeless and street people. They have enough to deal with, without stressing over the pandemic.

     

  • Pray for sustained courage and endurance for the men and women in addiction recovery.  Traumatic and tragic as their past has been, the enemy tries hard to lure them back.

     

  • Praise God for opportunities to share with the world that we at UGM do not only survive, but also thrive as God takes care of us.  Recently a grant organization asked us how we fund all our ministries out of four locations.  We could boast in the Lord, that He provides for all our needs, mostly through our wonderful Church family in and around Manitoba.  Thank you Lord!

Summer Camp

This year, as in the past several years, a Winnipeg businessman has generously offered to take care of all the costs associated with helping children from lower-income families enjoy a week of summer camp.  So, we’re hoping that we can use his gift to send at least 1500 school-aged children to various Christian Bible camps this summer. 

Criteria

To qualify for this camp ‘sponsorship’, children must meet a few prerequisites.  Four, to be exact!  They are:

  1.  You must live in Winnipeg.  Consideration may be given to children living outside of Winnipeg, but, all in all, the program is intended for Winnipeg children.
  2.  You must come from a lower-income family or be from a family on social assistance.  This is intended for families who, normally, cannot afford ‘extras’ such as a week of camp.
  3.  You must be between the ages of 5 and 18 (kindergarten age through to Grade 12).  Although the intent of the program is for children who are pre-teen, teenaged school children are also invited to use the sponsorship.
  4.  You cannot be sponsored through another plan, such as the Sunshine Fund.  Our desires are to give everyone an opportunity to enjoy a week of camp, so if you’re already going as a result of another program, we’d ask you to give others an opportunity through the one we’re offering.

How to apply

So, you meet all the qualifications – now what?  You will need to fill out this form along with a camp application.  Please call the Family Life Centre to find out which camp is best suited for you.   

Click on form link 

Once the form is filled in, you can finish the process by dropping it off at the Family Life Centre, or mailing it to: 

Family Life Centre
240 Pritchard Avenue
Winnipeg, MB  R2W 2J1

 Please note – any errors in the completion of the form will result in delays in registering for camp.  So, if possible, it’s better to bring the completed form to the Family Life Centre.  This gives us a chance to fix any errors right away, and eliminate those unwanted delays!

An important note

Our Family Life Centre staff will work closely with you in determining which camp you will attend.  This will help to ensure that camp spaces are filled up properly.  Although you can indicate your camp of preference, you may hear from us regarding which camp you will be actually attending.  We are confident that whatever camp you go to, you’ll love it!

Available camps

We are partnering with several camps again this summer.  Here they are.  Busing is provided to most of the camps.  The exception is noted with an asterisk.  We will remind you, at the end of the camp listing, what the asterisk means.  You can visit the camps online by clicking on the name.

*Busing is not available for this camp this year

A note to Churches 

Can you help us find children to send us to camp?  Are there children in your communities who fit the above criteria?  Are there areas in your community you can take this opportunity to?  If so, let us know, and we’ll get information kits and invitations out to you to help you promote this.  call Cassie at 204-586-7790 ext. 301, or email This email address is being protected from spambots.

A final note

Whatever camp you’ll go to this summer, you’ll not only have a great time, but your life may be changed!  In previous years, many campers have come to Jesus Christ, and made further decisions of commitment.  Lots of fun, great food, hanging out with friends (new & old), getting to know Jesus – what else can you pack into one week?
