ProLife Ministry Team
As we launch this new area of outreach, we will focus on our partner, Choices Pregnancy Centers. As we grow in volunteers, we will add to the number of ministry partners. For questions, contact the church office.
Through our ProLife Ministry, the Body of Christ comes together to value all human life, from conception to natural death.
- We speak up for Life and act on behalf of those who are vulnerable and defenseless. Our primary focus is to promote the sanctity of human life by providing education and support based on the Word of God.
“I came that they may have life and have it abundantly” John 10:10.
- We speak for human life by witnessing to our Lord’s creation of Life and His design for marriage and the family, and by advocating for the God-given value of Life.
- We promote the sanctity of Life by sharing Christ’s love and mercy and caring for people in body and soul by sponsoring pro-life efforts both before and after birth (including adoption placement and foster care), through our congregation and through other Christ-centered life-affirming partnerships.
- We educate by providing resources and events in support of the Life Ministry.

It’s easy to talk about your pro-life beliefs with your Christian friends. You’re all coming from the same source — the Bible. But what happens when you chat with friends or teachers who aren’t Christian and don’t see the Bible as anything at all? How can you stand up for life in a pro-choice world?
If the essence of our humanity consists in our freedom, in taking control, we must think of parenthood correspondingly. But that may mean the loss of the wisdom that to accept full responsibility for what our children are and become is to cut the nourishing root of unconditional parental love.
How do we contend for life in a pro-choice world? Scott Klusendorf, in his book “The Case for Life,” gives us a great three-step process.
Thousands of women suffer from the effects of abortion. what does the Church have to offer them? Satan would love us to believe that the Herod-like destruction of unborn children and the abuse of women through this destruction are political issues and do not belong in the Church. But that is precisely where they do belong! We have the Gospel, the only message that can shatter the darkness and bring hope.
The burgeoning science of assisted reproductive technology, including the freezing and thawing of human embryos, as well as embryonic stem cell research, continues to trivialize the tiniest and weakest amongst us. What should we as Christians consider when we discuss the relationship of parenting to assisted reproductive technology, especially as it results in the freezing and thawing of embryonic human beings and their ultimate death?
Eugenics is practiced when it is recommended that children with abnormalities and birth defects are aborted. But with God every child is a wanted child, and the church welcomes and holds dear every person.
