COVID-19 Pandemic Impact on Family Life Services | March, 17, 2020

To help keep our community healthy, the Family Life Services lobby is closed and most of our team are working remotely. We are following best practices recommended by the CDC.

We are still serving those who think they might be pregnant, are pregnant, or are parenting young children.

Although this pandemic can be dire and frightening, let us remember that our God, who is love, does not permit any evil except that He can bring a greater good from it.  I have been reflecting on John 9:2, concerning a blind person. Jesus’s disciples ask him “Rabbi, who sinned — this man or his parents — that he was born blind?” Jesus replied that neither was the case, but that he was born blind “so that the works of God might be made visible through him.” 

Sisters and brothers in Christ, we are living here and now so that the works of God might be made visible through us. In John 8:12, Jesus says, “I am the light of the world; whoever follows me will have the light of life.” Let us follow Jesus in confidence and without fear. 

At Family Life Services we are committed to supporting women in their choice for life and for the critical years that follow. We are keeping their unique challenges and the limitations of our volunteer-based staff in mind as we support clients during this difficult time.

Please continue to lift our Christian pro-life ministry — clients, volunteers, donors, and staff — up in prayer. You are in my daily prayers.

If you are shopping online during this pandemic, please consider choosing Family Life Services of Washtenaw County as your Amazon Smile Charity.

During this pandemic we are only accepting the following donations:

  • Diapers, size 4, 5 & 6;
  • New baby thermometers
  • Baby wipes
  • Gift cards
  • Sanitary gloves
  • Respiratory masks
  • Hand sanitizer

God bless you.

Yours for life,

Teresa Kasperick-Postellon, Ph.D.

Ash Wednesday Psalm for FLS Prayer Warriors

Ash Wednesday Psalm for FLS Prayer Warriors

Today many Christians begin a time of prayer, fasting, and almsgiving in preparation for Easter. The attached .mp3 is a setting of the beginning of Psalm 1. This gift to the Family Life Services prayer team and community was created with the generous support of the music ministry of St. Joseph Parish in Dexter, Michigan, and the monks of St. Meinrad Archabbey in Indiana. May it support your prayer and encourage your walk with the Lord. As you “ponder the law of the Lord day and night,” may you “yield fruit in due season.”  

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas!  May this week’s celebration of our Savior’s birth be a time of peace and joy for you and your loved ones.
This mp3 of O Come, All Ye Faithful (Adeste Fideles in Latin) is a gift from Family Life Services of Washtenaw County and our friends at Ave Maria Radio.  For nearly 3 centuries Christians have sung this song rejoicing in Christ’s birth into our world and our hearts. This version is shared with you through the generosity of Sandra McDevitt, Mike Jones and Annelie Cherney.
This is my final “thank you” as a staff member at Family Life Services.  I have transitioned out of my responsibilities and Teresa Kasperick-Postellon is our new Executive Director.  In 2019 my family hopes to adopt a second child.  I will continue to support FLS’s life-saving ministry as a donor and prayer team member, and I plan to host a table at the 2019 FLS Gala in March.  I hope to see you there.
I greatly appreciate the faith and generosity I have witnessed from you during my 5 years at FLS.  I am inspired by your support for abortion-vulnerable women and for women who are parenting in difficult circumstances.  Your commitment to this ministry enables our FLS team to share the love of Christ with those we serve.
imageThank you for the lives you have helped save and the families you have helped strengthen through Family Life Services.  May God bless you this Christmas and always.
