Church raises funds to help teen moms


Ponte Vedra Church, located at 76 S. Roscoe Blvd., held a fundraiser on Saturday, Feb. 10, to raise money for Young Lives, a nonprofit organization with an office in Jacksonville Beach. It helps teen moms who choose to keep and raise their babies. Young Lives develops teams of caring adults to build relationships with teen moms and their children.

More than $1,700 were raised during this fundraiser.

Gatherings for the girls, their babies and children provide fun, practical help, life-skills training and a safe place to hear about hope and God’s unfailing love. Young Lives fosters emotional, social and spiritual needs of young mothers as they raise the next generation.

Ponte Vedra Church is a Bible-based, mission-driven congregation with an emphasis on supporting local communities. Worship services are held at 11 a.m. Sundays. Small Bible study groups meet throughout the week.
