Three representatives from established Pro-Life Pregnancy Help Centers will be participating in an open forum from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sept. 8 at the Fort Dodge Public Library, 424 Central Ave.
Jenny Condon of Informed Choices Medical Clinic, West Des Moines; Sherill Glassmaker of Mary's Choice, Sioux City; and Candi Twedt of Lighthouse Center of Hope, Iowa Falls, will each present their experiences, explain the function of their agencies and answer questions.
Since last February, community members from Storm Lake and Fort Dodge have been meeting to pray and discern the possibilities of creating pregnancy help centers with ultrasound units in the communities. Later meetings resulted in broadening the effort to Algona and Spencer to form a four-community, unified "umbrella" effort to share and care for the unborn baby, the mother and father in need. The vision of the group is to combine resources and publicity to assure a more efficient effort in reaching out to all in Christian love.
This forum is open to everyone. Lunch is planned by potluck sharing or freewill offering. For more information call 576-2296.
