The time is here! We are hosting a baby shower for Hope Pregnancy Center on Monday, November 18th, at 7:00 PM! Hope offers expectant and new parents opportunities through parent classes to earn baby bucks, which they can then spend at the boutique. This baby shower will go toward making sure that their store can stay stocked!
I highly encourage you to read through the recap of this month’s meeting with our local center director, Emily Blount: 11/09 Meeting Recap
In fact, Emily will be at the baby shower to lead the devotional. She’s amazing! Come listen!
All baby items are fine. However, if you need a list, here are some of the most-requested items:
- Diapers sizes 4, 5, and 6
- Baby books
- New-Mommy gifts
- Crib sheets
- High chairs
Please DO NOT wrap your gifts! Since this shower is not for a particular person, there is no reason to wrap anything. Also, if you are more comfortable bringing a monetary donation, we will have a place for that as well.
We are so excited to have y’all experience this opportunity with us of sharing Jesus’ love with our community! Thank you in advance for your support, and we are looking forward to seeing y’all Monday night!
We had a wonderful meeting with Emily Blount from the Hope Pregnancy Center today! It was so encouraging to hear how the Lord is moving in the hearts of people who don’t know Him or have never heard of Him, especially during one of the most stressful and defining times of their lives.
Emily talked about how although most women come in looking for pregnancy confirmation, the Center walks with them through more than just that first event. Along with pregnancy tests, Hope also offers sonogram services (especially to those who are abortion-minded). In fact, Emily announced that of those who came in considering an abortion, 93% of them chose life after experiencing a sonogram, and that number increased to 96% if the father was present. Wow!
Emily also talked about their ministries to both parents during pregnancy and after birth for up to a year, helping young people figure out how to be parents and how God has a plan for their little family. The other little-known ministry is the Forgive and Set Free program, which is geared directly to women who have had abortions in the past.
Our church is hosting a baby shower specifically to help stock Hope’s baby boutique. The young parents to which they minister are able to earn “baby bucks” as they reach certain milestones and complete certain activities. Our gifts will go to help make sure that Hope has everything these young families need. There will be an official announcement posted soon, so make sure you check there to see how you can help.
We had 21 people come today! What a blessing! We hope to see more of you next month!
