BABY HOPE CLUB…because every baby deserves the hope of tomorrow.
This outreach, sponsored by Girls’ Ministries, helps babies born to young women living in our International Pentecostal Holiness Church (IPHC) maternity home.The Baby Hope Club funds are given to the IPHC maternity home to purchase things for the babies like diapers, formula, bottles, toys, etc. We believe every baby deserves the hope of tomorrow. God’s Word confirms this: “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future,” Jeremiah 29:11, NIV. Since Baby Hope Club is sponsored by General Girls’ Ministries, we encourage GM clubs and their coordinators and sponsors to “join the club.” Whether you have chartered girls clubs or another type ministry to girls, this is a tremendous ministry project. In fact, everybody in the local church is encouraged to participate in Baby Hope Club as well.
HOW DOES BABY HOPE CLUB WORK? Baby Hope Club is promoted by Girls’ Ministries leadership on the local level. In the early stages of Baby Hope Club, baby shoe banks were purchased through the general IPHC GM office. As banks are filled, money is turned in to the GM sponsor and mailed on a quarterly basis to Royal Home! With our supply of banks depleted, you no longer can order these banks through our office. However, as you continue to read, you’ll see that Baby Hope Club is alive and well. You no longer have to join through our office. You can create your own banks and get your people collecting money for this great project.
HOW CAN I GET MY OWN BANK? If your church happens to still have some of the baby banks around, feel free to use those. If not, we implemented an alternative idea a few years ago which allows you to purchase baby bottles from your local retailer. See the picture at the right to see how the bottle can look after adding the label we have created for you. Click here to download a master page (and instructions) for printing labels that you can paste onto the bottles. This can be printed onto a page of 2″ x 4″ mailing labels (10 per page). Or, purchase permanent markers and allow the girls to decorate their own baby bottles. This ministry is worthy of our support, so please consider implementing it in your church.Contributions can be sent to: IPHC Ministries – Baby Hope Club #02116P PO Box 270420 Oklahoma City OK 73137

SANCTITY OF HUMAN LIFE (SOHL) WEEK falls in January around the landmark date of Roe vs Wade. This makes it a great time to highlight Baby Hope Club in the local church and how it benefits the unborn children of the residents at our IPHC maternity home. (For more information and resources on Sanctity of Human Life Week, we recommend visiting the website of Be A Voice for Life.)
