Recent Events
Support Circle Gets an Ultrasound Machine
The ultrasound machine that our council raised funds for last Columbian year has been delivered to the Support Circle Pregnancy Clinic in Oakland.

A small group of us visited the clinic on Saturday to see the machine and have a quick tour of the clinic. It is heartwarming to know that in the short period of time since the machine has been in operation, it has already made a difference in the lives of dozens of women and their families.

THANK YOU! to our Culture of Life Director Nick Libby and PGK Wesley Arnold for leading the charge in making the acquisition and donation of this ultrasound machine possible.
Baby Gift Drive
Thanks to everyone who helped collect the baby gifts and donations at both churches this weekend. The turnout appeared to be less this year but we were still able to collect a truck load of supplies for the little ones!
