Get Involved"How can I be involved?"
TPPC would not exist without volunteers. Our volunteers are the backbone of this ministry.

Areas to volunteer are, but are not limited, to the following:
- Registered Nurse
- Clerical Assistant
- Office Organizer
- Prayer Warriors
- Fundraising for events
- Hosting a baby shower for our boutique
- Making blankets or burp cloths for the baby boutique.

Events"I can participate!"
Turning Point Pregnancy Center hosts two fundraising events a year with a third alternate, providing there is interest.
In May, a 5K/1 Mile Fun Run is held at Goose Pond Amphitheater. The three-mile run covers a scenic course throughout the Goose Pond facilities. Registration can be done on-line or forms can be picked up in our office. Early registrants are guaranteed a t-shirt and everyone receives a goodie bag. Snacks and drinks are available after the race. Door prizes and awards are also presented after both races are complete. Restroom facilities are accessible. Spread the word and bring your family for a few hours of fun in the sun!
Our annual and main fundraiser is our "Inspire Life Banquet" which is generally held in the month of October at Goose Pond Civic Center with doors opening at 5:30 p.m. and the event beginning at 6 p.m. In the past, our guest speakers have been: Siran Stacy, Kirk Walden, Bruce Wilkinson (author of "The Secrets of the Vine"and "The Prayer of Jabez"), Pam Tebow, Ken Bevel (Minister/Serviceman and actor), and Mike Williams, Comedian.
If you are interested in underwriting the event or being a table host, please contact the Center at 256-259-8772 for more information. Individual or group tickets are generally available the month before and up to 5 days before the event. It is suggested you place your order for tickets as early as possible.
