NMBC Announcement


UPCOMING VALLEY CARE PREGNANCY CENTRE FUNDRAISER - The Valley Care Pregnancy Centre is a local Christian Mission ministering throughout the Annapolis Valley. We partner together with this home mission to share the grace and truth of Jesus with young women and men facing life and death decisions. The Valley Care Pregnancy Centre is active in ministering to needy women and men facing crisis pregnancies, struggling with parenting, needing support through adoption and those wanting healing from deep regret after an abortion.

This Pregnancy Centre offers ongoing support, counselling, material aid, love, and the Gospel of Jesus Christ to everyone who needs help. Through this home mission, lives are being saved and hearts are turning to faith in Jesus and they are being connected to the local church.

This Baby Bottle Campaign is one way we can all work together to pray, raise awareness in the community and supply practical support for these Moms, Dads and Babies in need.

It’s really simple. On Mother's Day, baby bottles will be distributed. Just take a baby bottle home, pray for this mission and over the next few weeks put a donation of cash or cheque in the bottle and return it to church on Father's Day Sunday.

It’s a simple and effective way to make a powerful impact for the Gospel here in our own back yard.

Together, we can make a big difference. By this time next year, a baby will be born who would not have existed if it were not for your support. Thank you.
