October Newsletter

Happy Fall - I hope everyone has enjoyed the crisp, cooler weather.  I know I have.  The past several months have been busy for the Center and Staff.  I was serving on the on a committee planning the yearly conference for Pregnancy Care Centers throughout the state, the Center numbers continue to grow.  The Volunteers have had over 570 client visits for the year.   God has blessed us with two wonderful new volunteers: Janet Gibson and Wanda Snyder.  Thank you for all your prayers and may God continue to bless you.

"The Lord is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer;  The God of my strength, in Him I will trust."  2 Samuel 22:2-3

Because of Christ,

Several new babies have been born over the past two months.  Please continue to pray for those who are expecting within the next couple of weeks.
A Brief Insight 
"Be an example to the believers in word, in conduct, in love, in spirit, in faith, in purity."  1 Timothy 4:12

Real Luv Duex begins October 27th at First Baptist Church Dade City.  Pastor David Surratt and I will be sharing over the next four weeks on the Voices (who are students listen to), Runway Walk (character), A Night to Remember (purity) and Hand in Hand (self control).  Middle School will meet at 5:45 and High School will meet at 7:00.  Send your students to be filled with God's word to help them make the right decisions when faced with temptations.

Sound the Call conference was October 7th - 9th in Lake Yale.  The conference is hosted by the Florida Baptist Children's Home and Sanctity of Human Life Director.  This years event was "For His Glory" focusing on 2 Corinthians 4:6-7.  The weekend was filled with great teachings, worship and fellowship.  We would like to thank Mary Lou Hendry and her team for providing a weekend to spend with our Father in Heaven.  We are counting down the days to next years event.

Fill the stockings of Cornerstone Center for Women and save lives in the processWhen you consider your family's Christmas giving this year, consider Cornerstone as a place where your investment - your gift - will result in saved lives.

In 2011 we look forward to furthering 3 great endeavors:
Reaching more women considering abortion than any previous year.
Building families as we grow our ministry to dads.
Offering adoption option more effectively than ever before.

Three simple-but vital- initiatives:
When we reach more abortion vulnerable women, we'll see more lives saved from abortion.
When we mentor dads, new babies will grow up with an active father who know and fulfills his role.
When we strengthen our adoption outreach, more babies grow up in two-parent, Christian homes.

Are you with us?  If so, your Year-End gift will make a difference.  You can make your donations on-line or mailing them to the Center.  Either way, your gift - of any amount - will make 2011 our best year ever.
