Members of the Liberty Church 29-11 Youth Group recently raised more than $1,000 to benefit the Real Life Crisis Pregnancy Centers.  The group raised the money by participating in Real Life's Baby Bottle Boomerang fundraising event.  Liberty Church pastor Keith Hodges said the group members decided to carry the baby bottle with them as they went about their daily activities.  Hodges said people would be curious about the bottles and would eventually ask why they were carrying a baby bottle.  The answer was always, "Give me a quarter and I will tell you."  The 29-11 name comes from Jeremiah 29-11 ..."for I know the plans I have for you..."  For more information about Liberty Church call 256.931.4673 or visit

Baby Bottle Boomerang is a fundraising effort of Real Life CPC that distributes baby bottles to area churches where members who wish to participate take a bottle and fill it with spare change, bills or checks.  Several local churches participated in the fundraising effort.

Real Life Ministries operates crisis pregnancy centers at 116 Cullman Road in Arab and 104 West Al Ave., Ste. F in Albertville.  Several local churches participated in the fundraising effort.  For crisis pregnancy help of more information call the Albertville Center at 1.800.557.6633, Arab Center at 931-2000 or visit
