"Striving to know Christ more deeply ourselves and working to make Him known to others."
729 Main Street, Polk PA
ABC Life Center
Each year, our Congregation participates in the Baby-Bottle-Boomerang Program. Baby bottles are distributed on Mother's Day. People take them home and fill them with monetary donations. On Father's Day, these bottles are collected. On the Sunday that is timed with Labor Day, our Church submits these donations to the ABC Life Center in Franklin. These dates are significant; each one represents a crucial part of a family.
As Christians, many of us hold Pro-Life positions and advocate for these positions. We stress the importance of a life in the womb. Many times, as Christians we advocate for the position of life. But, after the mother chooses life, we feel like we are done--mission accomplished. Opponents of the Pro-Life position seize on this hypocrisy--and it is criticism that we should hear. If we advocate for the importance of life, that life matters in the womb but just as much after birth.
Crisis pregnancy centers and organizations like ABC Life Center in Franklin, stand in the gap and stress not only the importance of life in the womb, but life after delivery and the importance of family. As Christians, we can take a stance for not only the defense of life but the defense of the family when we contribute to these amazing programs and ensure they can continue to support the families who so desperately need their help.
Colossians 3:16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God.
2 Timothy 4:2 Preach the word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage--with great patience and careful instruction.
Hebrews 6:10 "God is not unjust; he will not forget your work and the love you have shown him as you have helped his people and continue to help them."
