Rio West Community Church has constructed, through volunteer efforts and donations, a 2100 sq. ft. facility for the Care Net Pregnancy Center of Rio Rancho. 


Rio West members and community donors have already contributed over $286,000 to this project and coutless hours of volunteer labor.  Our estimated need at this time is an additional $5,000 to see this through to completion.  We had a grand opening and pot luck celebration on April 27th, 2014, but we aren't quite ready to move in.  We are still without water; however, that work is scheduled to be done the first week in June.


Care Net provides free pregnancy tests, early health assessments, free ultrasounds, consultations w/nursing staff, pregnancy option support including: grieving support, miscarriage, stillbirth, early infant death, post abortion distress and spiritual counseling from a Biblical perspective. Plans are completed, we have our permit and have begun to build, but we need your help! Do you know someone who might have a heart for this ministry? Would they be willing to donate their time, energy and money to participate in this effort?  If so, please have them contact us!


If you have any questions, please contact RWCC at 771-0284 or contact Don Schlichte at 681-1371.


Mark 9:37 "Whoever welcomes one of these little children in my name welcomes me; and whoever welcomes me does not welcome me but the one who sent me."
