FOUNDER OF RACHEL’S VINEYARD MINISTRY COMING TO CARLISLE!!!
Saturday, March 8, 2014
10 a.m. – 2 p.m.
St. Patrick Church, Carlisle
Dr. Theresa Burke will lead a daylong discussion on her groundbreaking work helping families suffering in the aftermath of an abortion decision. Rachel’s Vineyard Ministries has helped thousands globally find the hope, help and healing they need.
Cost is $25 and includes lunch. To register, make your payment out to St. Patrick Church and send it to Patricia Dowling, 13 Morrison Way, Carlisle, PA 17015.
3 to 5:30 p.m. @ Our Center
We are looking for a few volunteers to help us put together over 700 pieces of mail in preparation for our participation in the Highmark Walk for a Healthy Community! This is our biggest spring fundraiser. If you can help, call us at 243-6544. Students needing community service hours for school or religious formation are especially encouraged to volunteer!
We have a Community Aid bin in the parking lot of Bethel Assembly of God Church on Rt. 34 in Carlisle. As you enter the church grounds, the bin is in the back left corner.
For every pound of clothing donated, we receive 4 cents, which does add up!! This bin takes clothing only.
Would your church or organization like to host a baby bottle campaign or baby shower for us? Both projects are easy to facilitate and you would be helping us continue our community outreach as well as promote awareness of your group as well. Loose change collected in baby bottles and shower items collected for our layettes help us support a new mother who has nothing for her baby. If you’d like to help us make a mom smile, call our center at 243-6544.
ATTENTION BUSINESSES, ORGANIZATIONS & CHURCHES! Would you be willing to partner with us & Community Aid by having a clothing donation bin on your property? Community Aid has offered to give us a portion of the proceeds generated from clothing donations received at these bins. This would require NO MAINTENANCE on your part! Community Aid would regularly service the bins. If you are interested, please contact Lori at 243-6544.
Thank You For Your Continued Support!
Do you like helping people? Do you like kids? If so, then let us hear from you! We need people willing to work with our clients on a one-to-one basis to assist them with their pregnancy or family issues. A counseling background is not necessary, but a willing ear and compassionate heart are. Training is provided.
We also need people to help us watch the children of parents who are taking our free parenting classes at our center twice a month. We provide this service so the parents in need of advice and support can discuss their concerns in a stress-free environment without having to worry about taking care of their children. Middle and high school students are encouraged to volunteer. Anyone age 18 and over must undergo a security clearance, which is paid by our center. Anyone interested in helping out in these areas should call 243-6544.
