Thank you for Walking for Life!

Thank you for joining the Love Revolution!
LOVE never fails was the theme echoed at each of the Walk events just a few weeks ago.  We were all touched as clients shared their personal stories of how the love received through CPC’s ministry made a real difference in their lives and the decision of life for their pre-born babies. 
The funds raised in the Walk for LIFE provide the services and resources needed to love these women and families well.  Thank you to everyone who participated – we are so grateful so many chose to join us in the Love Revolution!  God was honored, LIFE was valued and ministry funds were raised.
To date, a total of 717 sponsored walkers joined together to raise more than $160,000 in pledges and donations.  This support enables the Lord’s work to continue as we love families in crisis and seek to impact more lives in 2012.
We are already looking forward to sharing new stories of lives forever changed thanks to God’s grace through your support!

Volunteer Spotlight: Dianne Myrick

Volunteer Spotlight

·         Volunteer since 2004
·         Serves in Norfolk, Portsmouth and Virginia Beach
·         Receptionist, Nurse and “plant lover”

Dianne Myrick has a passion and love for CPC’s ministry that is evident in her amazing commitment and willingness to go above and beyond. Although she is a nurse and runs pregnancy tests in several of the centers, Dianne really shines at the front desk – answering the phone and staying calm even when she has a difficult call. She works quietly and efficiently making labels, filing folders and anything else that is required to keep the front office running smoothly. Dianne has repeatedly stepped up when there is a need and ministers faithfully in her own quiet, humble, gentle way – armed with a quick smile and great sense of humor. Thank you, Dianne, for the joy you bring to our Lord through this ministry!

Are you ready to get involved?  Connect with our volunteer coordinator today to learn more about volunteering at CPC!

Cute Kid Alert!

"We are so thankful it ended up being a story where God gets the glory!"
Stephen and Stephanie McHenry, dedicated volunteers to CPC’s ministry, felt the Lord pressing on their hearts to do more to help save lives and spare hearts from the great tragedy of abortion. After spending time in prayer, the McHenry’s answered this call by tripling a financial gift they had planned to give CPC.

That same week, they received their copy of Family magazine. Months earlier, the McHenry’s had entered their daughter, Abigail, into the magazine’s Cute Kid Contest. Despite the odds of this national competition, Abigail was named the contest winner. But what affirmed the family even more was that the first prize winnings equaled the same amount as their gift to CPC.

Stephanie shared, “We are so thankful it ended up being a story where GOD gets the glory!”
