Mission Focus For December

New Life Family Services of Rochester

A tradition for the mission offerings for December is to use the theme “Home for the Holidays” with outreach to New Life Family Services of Rochester. New Life Family Services honors the sanctity of human life by assisting clients in life-affirming decisions with the love and compassion of Christ. Their goal is “Birth for little ones, rebirth for their mothers and fathers.” In addition to adoption services, New Life offers three other services: Fast Care pregnancy center which offers confidential pregnancy testing, ultrasound, and decision making counseling; post-abortion counseling to help those who had an abortion heal through Christ’s forgiveness; and Abstinence Resource Center sex education materials. To learn more about New Life and the services they provide visit the display in the narthex or go to:

Please support this ministry with your prayers, contributions and an in-gathering of baby products: diapers, wipes, infant size sleepers, pacifiers, etc.
