In appreciation for no abortion clinics in Bedford County
The HOPE Crisis Pregnancy Center has opened their doors to those in a crisis pregnancy offering material help as well as counseling and alternatives to those who may believe that their only choice is to have an abortion. The HOPE Center is located in downtown Philadelphia near Temple University. There are 18 abortion clinics within a 2-mile radius of HOPE Center, which is the only pregnancy help center in this area.
Please look at the slide show below to see pictures of an abandoned Daycare Center being transformed into this beacon of light in an area where abortion clinics actively pursue young girls encouraging them to do away with the "blob of tissue" that would ruin their life.
A big THANK YOU goes to the following churches who participated in our spring 2008 baby bottle fund raiser. The churches are listed in alphabetical order:
Bedford Church of the Nazarene
Bedford Valley Charge United Methodist Church
Blue Mountain BIC
Breezewood Community Church
Dunnings Creek Church of the Brethren
Harvest Community Church
Horne Methodist Church
Rockhill Christian Church
St. John's Catholic Church
Victory Fellowship Church
Wolfsburg United Methodist Church
There were also donations totaling $170 from individuals.
In conjunction with the baby bottle fund raiser for the HOPE Pregnancy Resource Center, St. Thomas Catholic Church of Bedford raised over $1,300 for our local pregnancy center, Precious Life, through our baby bottle fund raiser.
We are planning on having another baby bottle fund raiser in the fall to benefit the HOPE Center so that other churches in Bedford County can also participate. Only so many churches can participate at one time due to the limited number of baby bottles that we have to distribute.
If you would like to have your church participate in the fall, please call Jan Creighton at 623-1314.
As an extra incentive to get people to return their baby bottles by the deadline, we had an Eat & Sleep drawing. The following prizes were donated:
Golden Eagle Inn: Overnight Stay/$140 Value
Edís Steakhouse: $20 Dinner Certificate
Landmark Restaurant: $20 Dinner Certificate
The Arena: $10 Dinner Certificate
Pizza Hut: 3 Personal Pan Pizza Certificates
The winners were Cathie Russell, Betsy Swindell, Chris Kline, Jessica Steele, Joe Kehm, Vivian Fisher, and Kathy McLaughlin.
Thank you to those businesses for their donations. If your business would like to donate a prize for our Fall 2008 Baby Bottle Fund Raiser, please call Jan at 623-1314.
