Board of Director's Update

At Care Net Peninsula, we are beyond grateful for the selfless men and women who make up our Board of Directors. They represent various groups and professions in our community and bring a variety of knowledge and talent to the leadership of this ministry. As we enter this next season, we have had to say goodbye to two long-serving members, Mark Lee (President) and Rob Johnson, Esq. (Treasurer). Both men faithfully served on our board for multiple years and terms, and helped grow Care Net Peninsula to what you see today. We are sad their time on our Board has come to an end, but we are thankful for the years they labored alongside us to help bring practical help and hope in Jesus to women on the Peninsula.

We look forward to the new Board of Directors members God will bring our way and we are pleased to introduce you to one of them, Garrett Maroon. Garrett is the leader of a local real estate team, The Maroon Group, and the CEO of LaunchPad Business Coaching. He graduated from Christopher Newport University and has been a long-time partner with the ministry. He is married to his better half, Rachel, and they have two young children. He and his family are active members of Reformation Christian Fellowship in Newport News. Garrett joined the board because he believes there has never been a more important time to stand up and fight for life!

January Prayer and Praises

anuary is a month of memory in the prolife community. It can feel monumentally heavy as we remember how many years abortion has now been legalized in America. However, it is a month dedicated to the Sanctity of Human Life; the sacredness of God’s creation. It points to His holiness and kindness in making something so precious. It encourages hope and praise.
