This Saturday is an Opportunity for Pro-Life Outreach

February 11th, 2011 by sjl+

Saturday, February 12, our youth are participating in a “Work and Play” day at the Arlington Branch of Emergency Pregnancy Services.  We will gather at Brian and Amy Sewell’s at 8:45 or just meet at the Merrill Road location at 9:00 am.

While we were unable to attend the March for Life in Washington, D.C., this year, we can still stand up and put our support behind the pre-born!  While protesting and marching are one way, getting out and assisting those who are one the front lines of the abortion battle is another.  Emergency Pregnancy Services provides assistance to hundreds of women every year and their facility needs to be a warm and welcoming place.

Tomorrow we will spread a few bags of mulch, weed their flowerbeds and trim their roses.  While this may not be “life-saving” work, it allows them to save money on landscaping and direct that money to helping women in need.

While this is a youth event, everyone is welcome.  We will finish up by noon and have pizza together afterwards.

    The day was awesome! We had eight kids show up and, in three hours, they took care everything the folks at EPS had wanted and more! EPS has “let go” of two different landscaping services and were looking for another when our Youth Group decided to take on their landscaping needs as an outreach of our church.

    Keep in mind that the Arlington branch of EPS sees an average of five to seven girls a day, THREE TIMES MORE than the original Riverside location. They assist over 2,000 clients a year and have a “save” rate of 82%.
