BABY BOTTLE CAMPAIGN (Feb. 4 to Mar. 11, 2018)
Last year at Grace, we brought in $814.65 and the grand total for this fund raiser was $27, 238.91!  With our help, they can focus more of their time with their clients. This is the reason why they exist, to be the hands and feet of Jesus in a very difficult and hostile world. The PCC is a lighthouse to our community and their purpose is to companion their clients who enter the house (PCC), so they are never alone.  We are looking for a co-ordinator for this annual fundraiser.  If you are able to take this on event, please contact Lynn Giese or the church office by Jan. 21, 2018.

Did you know?

Pregnancy Care:

  • With almost 900 client visits in the year, God provided many opportunities to minister in unique and compassionate ways…. Our clients were shown the love of Jesus from the moment they walked through the doors to their experiences with their peer counselors. The peer counselors are dedicated to walking along side of whomever God chooses for them that day! Our clients are companioned with love, education, prenatal classes, and material items. We even had the blessing of walking a mom through the adoption program and taking the journey with her while she battled drug addiction, and lovingly placed her baby into the care of a loving family that she was able to choose to raise her baby.
  • A team in Barrhead has been doing the groundwork on opening up a satellite Centre. The medical community along with other agencies are extremely supportive. Praise God many of the churches are encouraging and have already started supporting financially. We are excited to be opening in April.

 The WAIT! Let’s Talk program: 

  • The Let's Talk program was presented to over 9300 students in the 2016/2017 school term, 3 youth groups, and are well on their way for the 2017/2018 school term.

 

The focus has changed a little this year: concentrating on healthy relationships for teens, and giving the students opportunities to explore and discuss the following: what is the difference between healthy and unhealthy relationships; how does pornography, media, social media, sexting, dating violence influence and potentially affect relationships.  The feedback from teachers and students has been positive.

Abortion Recovery Centre (ARC): 

  • 2017 has proven to be Abortion Recovery Centre’s busiest year to date! As well as companioning clients, they have trained two new ARC volunteers to assist with the increase in Post Abortive clients. 
  • Mission-For-One A post-abortion grief program designed for men offered as a weekend retreat. 

Volunteers:

  • None of this would be possible without volunteers including those who counsel clients, those who come in and help with office duties or keeping our donated clothing straight and those who go into the schools and youth groups with a message of health and truth regarding relationships and sexuality. We continue to covet and need new volunteers as life circumstances take some of our precious volunteers into new commitments. We can’t express enough how vital our volunteers are. We are always looking for additional volunteers with all different gifts.  Please contact the Centre for more information.
