Baby Bottle Campaigns
Care Net partners with churches across King and Pierce County each year to help women facing unplanned pregnancies in their city find support in their moment of need. If you and others in your church are looking for new ways to love and bless women in your community, what better way than to participate in a baby bottle campaign?
What is a baby bottle campaign?
One way that church communities partner with Care Net is by participating in a baby bottle campaign. Empty baby bottles are distributed in each of our participating churches for attendees to take home and fill with change, cash or a check, then brought back to church on the last Sunday of the campaign. Gifts received during baby bottle campaigns are used to connect women in your community to life-affirming resources for their pregnancy, including pregnancy testing and ultrasounds, parenting education, material assistance and abortion recovery support.
Baby bottle campaigns not only help women in crisis – they strengthen and bless churches and the body of Christ as a whole as we partner together to see life cherished and supported across Puget Sound.
When are the baby bottle campaigns?
Care Net launches three baby bottle campaigns each year: one for churches celebrating Sanctity of Human Life Sunday in January, a spring baby bottle campaign for King County churches beginning Mother’s Day and ending Father’s Day, and an autumn “Harvest of Blessings” campaign for Pierce County churches beginning in September.
How do I get my church started?
Is it possible God is calling you to lead a baby bottle campaign in your church? Becoming a Church Liaison is the first step to making it happen.
Church Liaisons are a vital part of the ministry of Care Net. They share new opportunities to help women in unplanned pregnancies with their churches, keeping them updated on volunteer trainings and baby boutique needs at their local Care Net pregnancy center. Liaisons also play an important role during baby bottle campaigns, serving as contact persons and organizers for their respective churches.
We invite you as a potential Church Liaison to come into your nearest Care Net location, where you can meet the staff and volunteers that make in-center ministry happen each day! We will take you on a tour of our center, educate you about the services that Care Net offers to women and families in your community, and give you materials explaining Care Net’s services to take back to share with your pastor and church leadership.
After church leadership has given you the green light, contact firstname.lastname@example.org to get your church listed as a participant in the next baby bottle campaign! We will keep you posted on upcoming campaigns and provide you with bulletin inserts, PowerPoint Slides and baby bottles for your church to use during the campaign.
If you have any questions, you’re welcome to contact our Administration office in Tacoma at 253-383-6033 or 425-391-1770, or email us at email@example.com.
The next Baby Bottle Campaign begins October 2nd!
