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.

Mission

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.
