Denim & Diamonds

The Pregnancy Help Center of Lufkin celebrated 33 years of ministry at this year’s Denim & Diamonds Fundraising Banquet held at Pitser Garrison Convention Center in Lufkin with 200 of our friends.  While this year’s event experienced a lower attendance and subsequently lower financial gifts than needed, we are thankful for God’s provision.

Our motto, “Every Life Has A Story Worth Being Written” was played out through the amazing testimony of our friend, and former client, Vickie.  Vickie shared of her desire to terminate her unexpected pregnancy sixteen years ago and her journey to life as a result of her experience with the Pregnancy Help Center of Lufkin.  Not only did we get to hear Vickie’s testimony of how God carried her through a difficult time, but how he also drew her closer to him and strengthened her walk.  We were honored to get to meet her precious 15 year old daughter and learn of all the incredible things she is doing with her life.  Many of us got to hug Vickie and her daughter and offer our thanks for a beautiful choice in giving life.  THIS.  This is what serving at the Pregnancy Help Center is all about.

Your consistent prayers and financial support are what make stories like Vickie’s possible.  We are incredibly thankful for each of you who choose to invest in the ministry.  We are aware that you are not investing in us….but rather in the opportunity for other families to experience the joy that is found when we lean on Christ in our most difficult circumstances.  Thank you for being obedient to God’s call to support the ministry of the Pregnancy Help Center of Lufkin.

FINANCIAL NEED

Our financial goal for this banquet was to secure $45,000 in one-time gifts and monthly pledges for 2018.  As we prepare our budget for 2018, we may need to make some adjustments in order to meet a leaner budget.  However, if you have not considered a one-time gift or a monthly pledge, please consider doing so now.   2017 experienced a 26% growth in service opportunities from 2016.  This growth in service naturally results in a need for us to grow our staff and our resources.  Would you please consider a financial gift to help us meet our needs?
