As the Colemans are getting settled in their new home, there are some items they would love to be able to have. These will help them adjust to their new normal and feel love from home. There will be a donation box located in the narthex and in the Family Life Center beginning Sunday, May 27th . We will be collecting for three weeks before mailing. Please consider donating to send a bit of home to Addis Ababa.

Collect Our Change
From Mother's Day to Father's Day
Refuge Pregnancy Center
is a non-profit Christian organization.
All services are free.
Beginning on Mother's Day we distribute empty baby bottles. During the next few weeks we invite you to contribute your pocket change (and bills!). On Father's Day we begin collecting your filled bottles and pass on the proceeds to the Refuge Pregnancy Center. We have the joy of supporting women who have made the challenging decision of carrying their baby to term, helping them with the costs of medical care, formula, diapers, and clothes for their newborn child. Let's do ALL we can to support them in CHOOSING LIFE!

There is no financial donation that is too small or too large. We need your help to begin rebuilding Family Promise.
