Isolation, stress, anxiety, fear, depression, and relationship breakdown are among the issues being faced by many individuals and families during this difficult time. Shalom Counselling Centre does not want anyone to feel that they have to face these situations alone. If you, or someone you know, would benefit from talking to one of our Red Deer or Olds counsellors you can arrange a phone or ZOOM session. Individual or family counselling is available by calling our office at 403.342.0339 to arrange an appointment at either location. Shalom’s services are offered on a sliding-fee scale, making them more affordable for everyone. Please don’t wait – Good Mental Wellness is for everyone!

Sunday, June 28th 

our offering will be for African Widow & Orphan Support. This special offering is to provide financial assistance to the mission of African Widow and Orphan Support to assist in rehabilitate violated, traumatized women and children whose husbands and fathers were murdered by the Boko Haram terror group and more recently by nomadic Fulani terrorists in northern Nigeria. The offering is also to assist Pastors and their congregations. Their request is to pray for these wounded Children of God. The CRC as a part of the Sudan United Mission and coordination with Sudan Interior Mission brought the Gospel of Jesus Christ to Nigeria beginning in the 1939. In turn, converts of the mission shared that blessed Gospel with numerous others who had not yet heard. For the CRC Nigeria became its largest mission effort in finances, in employed personnel, and in the largest number of converts, hundreds of thousands, if not millions. Help us to continue to be God’s grace, bringing life to children of the faith who God reached generations past through CRC World Mission.
