Baby Bottle Boomerang

We have a sweet and simple fundraiser going on right now at North Terrace that I'm pretty excited about. It's called "Baby Bottle Boomerang."

It's a fundraiser to support the local pro-life crisis pregnancy center in Zanesville and it's really simple. At church yesterday we handed out these baby bottles. Those who choose to take them home, will over the next month (hopefully) fill them up with spare pocket change. They were distributed on Mother's Day and will be returned on Father's Day (June 19th) filled up with change as donations for the center.

The center will then collect them and use the money to help those who might be struggling with a choice of whether to keep their unborn child.

It's simple.
And hopefully will be effective.

I believe that abortion is one of those big social issues that the church should be interested in and involved in. We are told in Scripture that God created babies and knows them intimately before they are even born. And as Christians, we should care about the life of an unborn child, regardless of whether their parents do or not. This is a simple and tangible way to help unborn children.

I hope that North Terrace gets behind the effort full force in making a difference in saving the lives... even one... of unborn children. If you didn't get a chance to pick up a bottle this weekend... or wasn't sure what was going on with the bottles, you can pick one up this weekend (May 16th) and join the effort.
