We want to partner with your church! Baby Bottle Blessings is an easy and fun way to engage your congregation in support of those facing unplanned pregnancies in our community. Most congregations participate from Mother’s Day to Father’s Day but some engage around Sanctity of Life Sunday and we are happy to work with you on an effort any time of year.
The steps are simple. Pick up the number of bottles needed at your church and pass them out to members.
Ask that participants fill the bottle with cash, change or checks and return them.
Bring the bottles to Assurance. We count the money and receive the blessing of critical support for our ministry’s services.
This outreach effort is great for everyone in your congregation, people of all ages and means. Kids love it because they can help too!
Here are some answers to FAQ and tips for running a easy, fun and successful campaign.
