The Love Does emphasis for January highlights the work of the local CPC. The metro area CPC (Center for Pregnancy Choices) has two locations, with the third coming by Spring of 2017 in the Fondren area. The CPC functions primarliy through donations from churches and individiuals, as well as through volunteer support. There are many needs that volunteers can fullfill for our CPC so that it can minister and serve it's community. To find out more about what CPC does, please visit cpcmetrofriends.org today!
In 2016, BHBC gave to the local CPC the highest amount a church has ever given to them. There are baby bottles placed in foyer and hall areas throughout the month to fill with change and return back to the church. While we hope to accomplish that again this year, we also want to emphasis ways to serve at/with the CPC.
You can empower women to choose life by:
Hosting a Baby Shower: This is a great local missions project anyone can do and is great for Bible studies and churches! Have a party or have a special spot to collect baby items such as bassinets, swings, strollers, bottles, bottle brushes, pacifiers, bath towels, cloth diapers, shampoo, toys, crib sheets, safety gates, packs & plays, car seats, diaper rash ointments, thermometers, Pedialyte, any items for babies up to 1 year or for pregnant moms.
Special Info for Diaper/Wipe Drive: We may give out 15-25 packs of diapers each week (10 diapers in each pack), mostly sizes 3, 4 & 5. Babies wear the smaller sizes for only a few months.
Bring Snacks for Center Hospitality:
We need snacks and drinks for patient classes, volunteers, fundraiser meetings, and other means of day-to-day hospitality. We also need groups to sponsor parties during the holidays. Call the office for more information.
Donate Office Supplies:
Items we use: copy paper, colored paper, card stock, invitation size envelopes, file folders, laser address labels, trash bags, paper towels, Kleenex tissues, toilet paper, disinfectant spray, air freshener, and cleaning supplies.
Patient Care Packages/Mommy Gifts:
We love to have "happies" to share with our patients. Care packages with lotions, nail polish, sample perfumes, and make-up (new items only please) make a wonderful group project for a small group or school club. You can also donate gift certificates for restaurants, shops, or nail salons.
Resource Room Organizer:
Items are donated on a regular basis, therefore items need to be folded and re-sorted frequently.
Our relationship with our client usually begins when she comes in for a pregnancy test. She meets with a Decision Specialist who listens to her situation, encourages her by speak the truth in love and guides the client in critical thinking skills to equip her to make a good decision. You would have opportunities to speak on parenting, adoption, abortion, sexual integrity and the Gospel, Decision Specialists must complete an extensive training program.
Life Coach/Parenting Class:
Become a Parenting Class facilitator or Life Coach. These volunteers work with the clients who continue coming throughout their pregnancies and until their child is 1 year old. Training provided.
Nurses, Sonographers, Doctors, or other medical personnel, can use their abilities to give care and information to our clients, such as pregnancy tests, obtaining health histories, giving referrals, discussing sexual & reproductive health care. The Medical Team may also help with chart audits, research, and medical follow up.
Data Entry Specialist:
This person enters all confidential patient information into the patient database. This needs to be done in an efficient and timely manner. This is a very important behind the scenes position.
Post Abortion Support:
Women who have experienced abortion and have completed one of our Post Abortion Bible Studies lead and support other women as they find hope and healing through Christ.
The first person our clients see in our office is the Receptionist. Receptionists sit at our front desk in order to greet and direct clients and do light clerical work. They have opportunities to visit with friends or family who may be accompanying a client Receptionists are responsible for making reminder calls for all appointments.
Volunteers who are trained to answer the phone and may use the computer to schedule appointments for pregnancy tests. The warm, comforting and confident demeanor of the volunteer will assure the Patient that the CPC is a safe place to come for support and peace of mind.
We need Prayer Support! Please pray for the items in our newsletter or come and pray over our patients, volunteers, and staff at the office. The CPC is in a spiritual war and all Prayer Warriors are welcome to help us in this fight,
As a Church Liaison you would help us get the word out about what's going on at the CPC When we have urgent needs or information to communicate to the church or pastor, we call our Church Liaisons. Our Liaisons are our "in" or our "lifeline" to our supporting churches.
Public Relations Volunteers help us educate the community about who we are and the services we offer. We welcome new and innovative ways to help us connect with our community. Fundraising Volunteers would help with our fundraising events such as our annual Tri4Life and Benefit Dinner.
You can do all of the following one time or on a regular basis. These do not require a regular commitment or training.
The Center for Pregnancy Choices serves as an extension of the body of Christ by meeting the needs of men and women facing unplanned pregnancies and helping them avoid the trauma of abortion.
Their Mission is to empower these men and women to choose life....
Life for their unborn baby Abundant Life for themselves by choosing to live a lifestyle of purity and holiness. Eternal Life by choosing to accept Jesus Christ as their personal Savior and Lord.
