Come to Journey to Bethlehem with us!

We know a little about going on a journey. We also know a little bit about young, scared, single pregnant young women. In that spirit we want to invite you to join us for Harvester Christian’s Journey to Bethleham. It’s the 20th anniversary of this free, spectacular outside experience of the birth of Christ. They’ve added an extra night this year. Let’s gather our families together for this fun event onWednesday, December 7. Dress warm and in layers and meet up by Harvesters church offices at 6 p.m. so we can get in line together and go on a Journey to Bethlehem.

Did I seriously just hear a bell ringer? Is it just me or is anyone else in denial that the holidays are upon us? Does anyone else find it just a bit disconcerting for retailers to have beach toys, Halloween candy, and Christmas decorations displayed all together at the same time in their seasonal department?

Hopefully you’ve turned the calendar page and marked down all the Sparrow events for the rest of this year but I’d also like you to start looking ahead with us. We have less than 12 months to go for the launch of The Sparrow’s Nest. We are still on track to open in July 2012 but we need you to help us stay the course.

This makes me wonder if Grandma really needs another bottle of lotion. Or does Aunt Sally really another frame or coffee cup. Doesn’t Uncle Bob have enough sweaters?

As you’re starting to think about your holiday giving consider making a considerable donation of $25, $50, or $100 in honor of your special someone. We’ll make sure they are notified of your gift with a special Christmas card.

Gifts made represent a gift to the entire mission of The Sparrow’s Nest. To help get the doors open for our Build The Nest project we use your gifts where they can do the most good by pooling them with the gifts of others to help Build The Nest. And, because you are helping The Sparrow’s Nest save unborn babies and empower young mothers, your gift is tax deductible.
