Dear Friend,
At Care Net, a person may serve on the board of directors for 6 years and then he or she must take at least one year off. We have thought this principle to be a wise way to encourage many Christians in the Montachusett community to offer their time and talents to the cause over the years. My term began in 2006, the last four years as president. It has been a true privilege to serve the Lord here.We have come a long way since 2006. God has been so gracious to us and we give Him all the glory! 

 

Thus, my term as President of Care Net has recently ended. Please do not worry, I will still be around in an advisory capacity. Yet, it has become to clear to me that there are other areas of Christian ministry where I am to now serve. I am very excited.

 

My good friend and dear brother, David Haschig, has been elected President of Care Net on July 2, 2012. David attends Messiah Lutheran Church in Fitchburg. He has served on the Care Net board for the past two years and I am excited to see how the Lord will use him in this role. May God bless your ministry here David! 

 

We thank you for all your generous support, past, present and future. Like you, we cannot ignore women in the crisis of unplanned pregnancies in the Montachusett region.  Our goal is to love people back to life again. 

Together by the grace of God, we have worked a co-laborers in this local mission field for the past 36 years. You and your church are deeply appreciated. We are so grateful that you have recognized the need and answered the call. Babies have been spared and souls have been saved!

May God bless you and keep you,
David P. Bodanza, Esq.
Past President

Dedicated and Doing

515 Main Street
515 Main Street

The new Care Net Center at 515 Main Street was dedicated on Sunday, May 20, 2012 with over 100 people in attendance. The building was dedicated to the glory of God the Father, who has called us by His grace, God the Son, who loved us and gave Himself for us, and God the Holy Spirit, who illumines and strengthens us; For the worship of God through serving others, with prayer and praise, for the presentation of the good news of Jesus Christ and for the sanctity of human life;

For the comfort of those who are in crisis, for wisdom to those who will make decisions, for light to those who seek the way; For the conversion of sinners, for the promotion of righteousness, for the extension of the kingdom of God as God gives us opportunity; in the unity of the faith, in the bond of Christian fellowship, in love and goodwill to all; in gratitude for the labors of all who love and serve here, and in loving remembrance of all those who have finished their labors; As members of the body of Christ, grateful for our heritage, and sensible of our responsibility, we dedicated ourselves to the service of Almighty God in this building, whether in labor here or in prayerful and financial support of those who will labor here, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Save the Date for the Annual Banquet . . . October 25, 2012
Our Tenth Annual Fundraising Banquet is scheduled for Thursday, October 25, 2012 at 6:00 PM at the Four Points by Sheraton in LeominsterSheraton. We hope that you will plan to attend! Our banquet was a wonderful success last year and we are hoping for the same this year. It is an evening of fellowship and good food with the opportunity to hear what is happening at Care Net and how you can be a part of what our Lord is doing through His people here. It is also a time to catch up with others in the Christian community that you have not seen in awhile!

  
The Annual Banquet is made possible by very generous and helpful local people, churches and businesses we call "Table Sponsors" and "Table Hosts." A Table Sponsor donates $500 to sponsor one table. That donation underwrites the cost and expenses of the banquet for the people at the table. A Table Host, who is often the same person, business or church as the Table Sponsor, will arrange for that table to be filled with people who care about the mission and are open to donating to Care Net. Our Table Sponsors and Table Hosts are very much appreciated. If you or your business could help in this way, please let us know. Give Gail Gardner a call at the Center. If your church is not yet involved in this way, perhaps you could be the spark that kindles the fire with your pastor or missions' committee !
 
Some Words to Ponder...

 

"Fear of man will prove to be a snare, but whoever trusts in the LORD is kept safe." Proverbs 29:25
 
"I swore never to be silent whenever and wherever human beings endure suffering and humiliation. We must always take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented." ~ Elie Wiesel, Holocaust Survivor

 

"In Christian service the branches that bear the most fruit hang the lowest." Anonymous 

 "Destruction of the embryo in the mother's womb is a violation of the right to live which God has bestowed on this nascent life. To raise the question whether we are here concerned already with a human being or not is merely to confuse the issue. The simple fact is that God certainly intended to create a human being and that this nascent human being has been deliberately deprived of his life. And that is nothing but murder."~ Dietrich Bonhoeffer  
  
"I believe abortion is destined for the scrap heap of history. Abortion is being held aloft by the hot air of a small well-heeled elite. It's on the artificial life support system of foundation money, politically correct elite opinion, special interests, media bias, and widespread ignorance of the facts...Legal abortion will never rest easy on this nation's conscience. It will continue to haunt the consciences of men and women everywhere."
~ former Pennsylvania Gov. Robert Casey

 

"It is not the critic who counts: not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error or shortcoming, but who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself for a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows, in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat." ~ Theodore Roosevelt

 
 " 'Stand still' - keep the posture of an upright man, ready for action, expecting further orders, cheerfully and patiently awaiting the directing voice; and it will not be long ere God shall say to you, as distinctly as Moses said it to the people of Israel, 'Go forward.'"

~ Charles Haddon Spurgeon 


May God bless us all as we stand together for Him in this generation...
