JULY MISSION FOCUS
Aspire Together Baby Bottle Campaign
JULY 3 – 31
On July 3rd we will kick off Aspire Together’s Baby Bottle Campaign.  This is our 5th year participating in this campaign which helps fund Aspire Together’s locally supported work in offering compassion, hope and practical support and services to those facing unplanned pregnancy, as well as, relationship and parenting journeys. Services include STD testing, pregnancy, pregnancy testing, Ultrasound, relationship support, on-going support, parenting mentors, parenting education, as well as, baby essential items, post-abortion support, and referrals.  All while providing these services free of charge!  And, in light of the continuing focus on unrestricted, unlimited abortions in this state, it’s more vital than ever to help make this faith based pregnancy support available for women.  Aspire Together’s vision is to “provide a culture where women and men faced with pregnancy and relationship decisions are transformed by the gospel of Jesus Christ and empowered to choose abundant life for their unborn children, themselves and their families.”  Baby bottles will be available Sunday, July 3rd through July 31st.  Please feel free to take one or more baby bottles home and fill with your loose change (and/or bills, if you so desire), and return the bottle to church by July 31stIf you write a check, please make it out to Aspire.
Please know that in donating to this ministry you are helping to save the lives of unborn children.
Thank you,  The Mission Team

The following is a list of the bible points for each day: Jesus is King. / Jesus showed God’s love. /Jesus loves us. / Jesus died for us./ Jesus lives. We’re looking for volunteers to plan and help the week of VBC.
