Important Emerald Anniversary Gala Update

Dear friends of Family Life Services,

In light of recent announcements regarding the State of Michigan’s response to COVID-19/Coronavirus, we have very prayerfully decided to postpone tomorrow’s Emerald Anniversary Gala at the Ypsilanti EagleCrest Marriott.

We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience this causes, but feel this decision best reflects the life-giving focus of our ministry. We also have a great desire to be able to celebrate with all of our supporters, several of whom have already expressed that they are uncomfortable attending.

Our amazing planning committee is already in communication with Pam Tebow’s team in rescheduling a date. We will follow up with further options on applying prior giving to our rescheduled event, according to your wishes, as more information is made available.

Our ministry revolves around loving mothers, meeting their needs, and helping them care for their children. We are keeping their unique challenges in mind as we support them during this difficult time.

Please feel free to reach out to us over email at gala@flscenter.com or 734.434.3088 with any questions.

Thanks so much for your understanding, your prayers, and your support. We look forward to celebrating together the awesome work of God in the successes of this pro-life Christian ministry.

Yours in Life,

Through a series of “God stories,” Pam Tebow discovered the joy of investing herself in the lives of those in her sphere of influence. Her notoriety increased when her youngest son Tim, quarterback for the Florida Gators, became the first sophomore to win the Heisman Trophy. 

During the nationally televised Heisman broadcast, ESPN aired a portion of an interview that focused on her refusal to abort Timmy when she was advised to do so. She was given an instant national platform to encourage the pro-life message.

In 2010, Pam and Tim appeared in a Super Bowl commercial that celebrated family and life, which according to a Barna Survey, resulted in 5.5 million people “having cause to rethink their stand on abortion.”

Pam is passionate about encouraging people of all ages to trust the Lord with all their hearts for all their lives and use the incredible influence God has given them to eternally impact their world.  This is the subject of her book RIPPLE EFFECTS – Discover the miraculous motivating power of influence released on Mother’s Day 2019.
