November 30th is Giving Tuesday!
You know that we serve women and men who come in for STD testing, pregnancy tests, and ultrasounds, post-abortion and relationship help. BUT, did you know that there's more to your giving that this?
When you give to Aspire Together, you are also helping yourself. Besides the warm feeling that comes from doing something good in the world, giving helps us to be more aware of God's provision and blessings in our lives. Doesn't He tell us throughout His word that He delights in the sincere gift (1Cor. 1:12), the cheerful giver (2Cor.9:6-8), and the giver who trusts in His promises (Mark 12:41-44)?
The clients who benefit from your generosity are image-bearers of God. His love for them is the same as His love for you and me, no matter if they know Him or not! This season, please help Aspire Together reach many for Christ. God knows the role He planned for each one of us from the very beginning. Won't you join us in helping clients start reaching their God-given potential?
Thank you and God bless you!
We have so much to be grateful for: our faith, our friends, a bright and welcoming new center, a mobile clinic in the works, babies being born, and so much more. God is abundantly able to provide and we are thankful.
Deb and all the staff wish you and yours a blessed and happy Thanksgiving!
This past Saturday we hosted the first Open House here at the new center and had a great group of friends show up to see what's new! We had tours, answered questions, and had folks interested in volunteering for us. If you were unable to attend, but are curious about the new space please drop by anytime during business hours and if we are able to, we'll show you around and answer any questions you might have. Or call ahead and schedule a time!
Also, if you have been thinking of volunteering as a way to join in with this ministry, please let us know and pick up a volunteer information packet. We will need more volunteers who can work with potential clients with the Mobile Clinic once we have it as well as those who might have an interest and skill in bookkeeping, handyman, IT help, event (Baby Bottle drive, Banquet, Walk/Run, etc) help and Prayer Warrior where the Mobile Clinic is OR praying from home during specific time slots. We need it all and would greatly appreciate your service!
In just 10 short days, we'll be hosting an Open House here at the new center. How quickly time has flown by! Since our last blog post, we've had our Annual Fundraising Banquet, moved to the new center location and sent out a newsletter.
In case you aren't on the mailing list (and if you want to be, let us know!), the Open House will be held on Saturday, Nov. 13th from 10:00 - Noon. Drop in for some refreshments and take a tour of the new space. We are so pleased with what God has provided: a bright, welcoming space that has plenty of parking and is on the busline near shopping for clients! For us, having a post office right around the corner is handy as well.
Please come join us at: 5399 Williston Road, Ste. 207 (we're on the second floor)
Williston, VT 05495
Again, drop by anytime between 10am and Noon! There is parking and the entrance is in the back. You can use the stairs or the elevator. We hope to see you soon!
It's official: we are moving! With many false starts behind us, we are getting ready to move into a wonderful new space after the Banquet next month. Please consider helping us move what we need from here? We will be on the second floor, but there is an elevator right inside the door off the parking lot.
We will not be bringing a lot of what's here with us and are looking to give away some tables, chairs, bookcases, and other misc. furniture. Also, we want to give away the maternity clothes and baby furniture (which includes high chairs, changing tables, strollers, etc.) If you are interested in coming to see what we have to give away, stop by during business hours (M-Thurs, 8:30-3:30) or call us at 658-8046.
Also, we could really, REALLY use some help with the new space, as we are changing the flooring. If you or anyone you know might be able to help us within the next week or so tear up the old carpeting and/or install some new carpeting and Pergo flooring we would be so grateful! Home Depot is booking eight weeks (!) out for installations and that just won't work!
Thank you, we appreciate you!!
Happy Dog Days of Summer! As of today, the Annual Fundraising Banquet is exactly one month away. It's amazing to us just how quickly the summer is flying by as we get ready!
We just wanted to let everyone know that although we are offering the choice between two time slots on Banquet Day, the program will be the same for both. Our speaker is Mary Hahn Beerworth of VT Right to Life and with all the craziness going on in the world around the issue of the sanctity of life, the timing couldn't be better.
The center will be CLOSED on Banquet Day, as we will be at Daybreak Church getting ready for the two events. If you try to contact us on the day of the Banquet, we won't get your email, but you can show up and join us anyway.
That's it for now, we hope to see you soon!
We hope your are enjoying your summer and wanted to let you know we have a different venue, date and choice of TWO banquet times this year. We hope you can join us as we celebrate God's goodness and provision through this time!
This is the new battlefield: it's been rightfully dubbed "Death by Mail". Women will very soon be able to order the pills that induce an abortion, without even a cursory medical exam to determine if the pregnancy is actually in the womb, or if the woman is as far along as she thinks she is. The risks of reversing the safety checks currently in place are enormous and put both baby and mother at risk. If a woman has an ectopic pregnancy for example and doesn't know it, she could have fatal complications that she has been told are a normal part of the chemical abortion process. What can we do to combat this?
Please watch this docu-series. Arm yourself with the knowledge to fight back against the lies of the abortion industry. Share it as well. We don't have the money, the power or the connections to fight on their battlefield. What we DO have is the Lord and His power. Keeping our eyes firmly fixed on Him and walking forward, we ask you to join us in prayer and educate as many people as possible about this evil. We must stand firm on His promises and fight the good fight for the unborn and their families! This is brought to you by Students for Life and Heartbeat International:
