walk for life 2018

CareNet’s Walk for Life is coming up on Saturday, August 25, 2018 at four different locations in the Albuquerque area:

  • Northeast Heights Albuquerque – Heights Cumberland Presbyterian Church
    8600 Academy Road NE, Albuquerque, NM 87111
  • Rio Rancho – Haynes Park
    2006 Grande Blvd. SE, Rio Rancho, NM 87124
    (Registration at First Baptist Church RR West Entrance – NM528 & 19th Street SE)
  • East Mountains – Good Shepherd Lutheran
    5 Entrada Del Norte, Edgewood, NM 87015
  • Valencia County – CareNet Center of Valencia County
    601 Main Street SE, Los Lunas, NM 87031

Registration for all locations will start at 8 am and walking will start at 9 am.

Desert Springs supports CareNet because CareNet loves Jesus and seeks to reach the lost. Every time a woman walks in for a pregnancy test and goes through CareNet’s pregnancy packet, they share the hope of the gospel through Jesus Christ. In a state where, horrifically, late-term abortion is allowed up until the day of birth, CareNet strongly stands for life, compassionately showing the humanity of the not-yet-born and coming alongside single women and families to provide material resources, parenting classes, and lots of prayer.

But why Walk for Life? CareNet depends upon Walk for Life as a fundraiser to reach out into the community and ask for one-time donations, which help fund their day-to-day operations. More than that, however, it is a public proclamation to the world that the Church stands for life, that we serve a God who gives abundant life, and therefore, we view all lives as important and worthy to be lived, no matter how small.

If you have any questions about CareNet or Walk for Life, please feel free to contact me at brooke.baker2015@gmail.com or Josiah at josiah@desertspringschurch.org.
