This October, in recognition of Pregnancy & Infant Loss Awareness Month
, First Baptist Church of Shelby, NC will host a community-wide event to provide support and hope to families who have lost children via miscarriage, stillbirth, and infant death. The event will feature keynote speaker, Angie Smith. Angie is the author of I Will Carry You: The Sacred Dance of Grief and Joy
, and wife of Selah
singer, Todd Smith. Angie has a popular blog, The Story of Audrey Caroline
, which inspired her to write her book. Selah
also released a track entitled “I Will Carry You (Audrey’s Song)” on their album, You Deliver Me
. This event will serve as a time of music, prayer, sharing, and inspiration for families and individuals who have been touched by the loss of a child. Scouting for Hope
aims to promote awareness of the pregnancy and infant loss that many families experience alone, and ultimately to provide an uplifting reminder that when we join together to ‘scout’ for hope, we will surely find it in Jesus.
*Nursery care will be provided at the event for families with other small children.
UPDATE: Angie’s husband, Todd of the Christian music group Selah, will also be singing at the event.
