Fall 2017 Newsletter Story 2
On Saturday, September 9th, Park Meadows Baptist Church was filled with those eagerly anticipating the (almost sold out) Steve Green performance. This performance was accompanied by the Lethbridge Community Choir who also sang a few solo selections, showcasing their powerful voices and beautiful harmony for all to enjoy. It was a fantastic evening filled with praise as we worshiped together, singing along to the many familiar favorites.
This was the second time that the LPCC has had the honor of hosting Steve Green, the first being nearly five years ago, when the Centre was merely a dream. However, the Centre is no longer a dream, but a reality, having seen over 600 women and men since the doors first opened. During the evening one of these clients talked about her experience, sharing firsthand the difference the support of the LPCC had made in her life.
When Jolene found herself unexpectedly expecting she was faced with a myriad of questions, and a choice she needed to make. When she came to the Centre, she was given space to work through the questions she was asking herself and support to make her decision. This part of Jolene’s story is now in her past, but she still recalls the conversation where her advocate said, “You can do this. And we will be here to help you every step of the way” showing just how much it matters to know you’re not alone.
An enthusiastic response was received when the opportunity to give was extended and together you raised almost $20,000 that will go directly to the work of the Centre. Thank you for your generosity and your support.
