May collections: All for babies!
This month, all sites of Cornerstone Lutheran are participating in two programs that will help God’s youngest and very precious ones—babies! We will be having a month-long “Baby Shower” to benefit the Sharing Place and Concordia Seminary families, and taking part in Life Center’s “Bottles for Babies” campaign.
LWML’S Baby Shower collection
The LWML is sponsoring a Baby Shower during May to benefit both The Sharing Place and Concordia Seminary families. There are marked collection bins outside all worship areas at Carmel and Fishers sites.
Items requested include: small and medium-sized onesies, undershirts, sleepers with feet, gowns, receiving blankets, crib sheets, mattress pads, towels, socks, disposable diapers, baby wipes, shampoo, pacifiers, and bibs. Gently used baby items and maternity clothes are also needed and much appreciated. We hope each family will be able to donate one new baby item.
What is “Bottles for Babies”?
Participating in this fundraiser is a simple way you can impact women in unplanned pregnancies and support moms who choose life for their babies. The monies received will be used to offset newborn layette expenses for new mothers in need, as well as support services of diapers and wipes given out over the course of the year. To participate:
- Take a baby bottle home from church. You can pick up yours outside any worship area.
- Fill it with change, cash, or checks. Return your bottle by Sunday, June 18 (Father’s Day!). Or, if you fill it up before then, bring your bottle in and pick up another one!
Life Centers counts and reports the church total.
Why support Life Centers? Helping thousands of women that face pregnancy decisions each year is a special way of sharing Christ’s compassion, love, and hope. Life Centers affirms the value of life in this way by providing a network of care that includes peer counseling, pregnancy tests, ultrasounds, maternity and baby supplies, post-abortion counseling, and resources that explain the truth about life.
