Voice for Life Ministry

Every human being is valued simply because we are God’s image bearers (Genesis 1:26) and deeply loved by our Creator.  Because of that, the church is called to “Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves; ensure justice for those being crushed.” (Proverbs 31:8).  Below are different ways you can be a Voice for Life...

Be Informed:

    • 10,000 abortions take place every year.
    • That is 4 abortions every business hour.
    • 1/3 of all abortions in North Carolina happen in Charlotte.
  • IMPACT OF ABORTION

“Surrendering the Secret” Small Groups

"Let the redeemed of the Lord tell their story" Psalm 107:2

Christ came for all, died for all and loves all; not just those who chose life. Studies indicate that 43% of women have had an abortion. You are not alone if you have dealt with this issue!  Post- abortive women are your mothers, your sisters, your friends, neighbors and co-workers! There is hope; there is healing; there is freedom.  Surrendering the Secret is an 8-week, closed group study that will guide you on the path to the abundant life for which Jesus gave His life. Come share your heart in a safe, confidential environment and experience all that God has in store for you.  You will never be the same! Here are thoughts on the study from previous participants: 

"Before I started in the group I felt very anxious about sharing information with ladies I never knew. However, as the sessions continued, I felt relieved, more at ease, and safe to share in our environment..."

“Through this bible study I was able to stop listening to the lies of Satan separating me from God and telling me that I was unworthy of true forgiveness. I am now able to hear God's truth that I am redeemed and forgiven by the grace of Christ.”

“Surrendering the Secret is a quiet and safe place to discover I am one among several who have lived with the secret of abortion and can now find freedom as I release that burden to the Lord. I am truly thankful for my new friends who have walked this 8 week journey with me.”

The fall session of the study will begin on Thursday, September 25 at 9:30am.  The group will meet off site but close to the church. For more information, contact us at . Inquiries are completely confidential.

For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb.  I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth.  Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.”  Psalm 139: 13-16
