In the midst of this pandemic, Lighthouse Pregnancy Resource Center has continued to provide ultrasounds and essential material aid to parents who are more overwhelmed and under-resourced than ever before.
In the next month, the ministry is hosting its annual Baby Bottle Boomerang, and finances raised are critical to fund the life support it offers to women, men, and teens facing unexpected pregnancies and related concerns.
Since many churches and schools are meeting online, Lighthouse Pregnancy Resource Center (LPRC) is asking friends to participate in a Virtual Boomerang.
“This is our second biggest support and awareness-raising event of our ministry year, so we are praying for great participation,” said Debbie Provencher, executive director of Lighthouse. “We have created digital resources to use during live-streamed services, on social media, and in e-mails. These resources will help particpants spread the word about Lighthouse’s free services, and let your people know how they can help hurting families.”
LRCC is encouraging participation now through June 30, and will share weekly updates during June; however, particpation is open beyond June.
Resources available include:
- A brief family-friendly 2020 Lighthouse Baby Bottle Video (also below) that introduces the Boomerang and highlights how support saves and changes lives. (video is also below)
- A digital flyer (one-page pdf) to share by e-mail or on your website, describing how to give online or by check
- Social media graphics can be found on the materials page, and a PPT announcement jpg to share with your circle of influence through Facebook, Instagram, your website, or by e-mail to encourage participation
- Large-size postcards that can be requested from Lighthouse to mail to your people – or you can provide us with address labels for one-time use, and we will handle the mailing. If you begin meeting in smaller settings, we can supply you with a quantity of these to distribute in lieu of bottles.
Resources can be downloaded from links at LighthouseBabyBottle.org or by going to our friends’ website – FriendsofLighthousePRC.org – and following event links for the Baby Bottle Boomerang. Spanish resources are also available.
We recognize this is a challenging time, and it may be impossible for you to consider anything outside of your own ministry needs,” said Provencher. “Please know we are praying for all of our partners. But for some, this may provide a tangible outlet for their desire to help hurting families and vulnerable children. May the Lord bless you and keep you.”
