We are a pro-life family-
We are a pro-life church-
We love children, both born and unborn.
For you created my inmost being;
you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
We believe that life begins at conception,
and that each life is a special and unique
creation of God Himself.
We are created in His image.
With that belief in our life, we do whatever we can to promote and provide for
children and to protect the unborn.
One of the things that we do as a united church, is attend
the annual March for Life, held every year in January,
on the anniversary of the Roe vs Wade
Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion in the US.
A bus is chartered to Washington, DC, and as many as are willing and able,
fill the bus to capacity to march in protest.
We are protesting this decision, and want it overturned.
Many of the people in our church take the day off work to attend the March.
The Sunday after the March for Life, all of those from our church
that attended the march, (26 total) sang a special song for the rest of church.
The children are always included!
Children are the future of the church of Christ, and the future of our country.
Another thing that we do to support life,
is to donate to the local Life Choices Center.
Life Choices is dedicated to meeting the physical, emotional and spiritual needs
of young men, women and families that are facing unplanned pregnancies.
One of the ways of support is through the baby bottle drive.
Anyone who is interested, takes a baby bottle home, fills it up with $$, and returns it to church.
The bottles are then taken by a volunteer to the Life Choices Center.
The mission of Life Choices is to empower choices for life, sexual integrity and healthy families.
Free medical services are available, including
pregnancy testing, ultrasounds, STD testing, abortion education, community referrals, prenatal and pregnancy education,
material resources, post abortion support, sexual health, relationship education, and male/fatherhood consultations.
They have a 24 hour help-line,

While the baby bottles were waiting to be filled up,
one of the ladies in our church, Martha Taylor, was very busy
making beautiful crib afghans to donate.
(Martha, on the right.)
They were so beautiful, it makes me wish I had a baby!
One of the points of the pro-choice group is that the pro-lifers are only interested in unborn children-
what is done to help unwanted children?
Their point is not true-there are many willing to help children.
There are 4 families in our church that are actively involved in foster care of unwanted and at risk children,
one of them eventually adopting 4 special needs children.
This past Sunday, in looking over my little Sunday School class of 6 Jr. kids,
I realized that ALL of them were adopted.
Children, wanted or not, are a great ministry work.
Although the stars do not speak,
even in being silent they cry out.
Every aborted child, though they cannot speak and are silent,
would cry out, “Let me live!”
The LORD Himself goes before you and will be with you;
He will never leave you or forsake you.
