How Churches Can Get Involved
As Christians we know that every human life is a gift from God, created on Purpose, with Purpose, for a Purpose. But when women face unplanned pregnancies, abortion often seems like the only solution. These tiny lives – created in the image of God – are ended, before they breathe their first breath.
Your church can help women and men learn the truth, and find help & hope for what they are facing when you partner with Hand ‘n Hand. Church partnerships help promote the sanctity of human life in the community, giving a voice to the voiceless, and sharing the unconditional love of Christ to women, and men in need.
We are so grateful for the various local churches who have designated Hand ‘n Hand as a local mission. We are equally thankful for the faithful monthly financial support that we receive from our local churches in support of the work. We feel honored to be able to minister to those facing an unplanned pregnancy decision, so they feel empowered to choose life. In sharing the hope of Christ, we see God’s grace pour out over the lives we touch.
As the Local Church You Can:
Consider hosting a baby shower event at your church to collect new baby items that are needed at the center. These tangible gifts will then be given to moms who have chosen life and provide them the material support they need for their babies.
Introduce Hand ‘n Hand to the body of Christ by hosting a Baby Bottle Campaign. We will provide you with the baby bottles & support needed to distribute the bottles to individuals within your congregation. They would then fill the baby bottle with loose change, cash, or a check. At the end of one month, these individuals then return the bottles to the designated area in your church and we will work with you to collect the bottles. Your change can help save lives.
Prayerfully consider donating your time toward the Kingdom work at Hand ‘n Hand. You can commit to volunteering for as little as a few hours each week to share the love and good news of Jesus Christ with women in need. For more information on volunteering, contact our Executive Director here.
Refer a woman in need. When a woman reaches out to your church for counsel, refer her to Hand ‘n Hand. Whether she is facing a crisis pregnancy or seeking counsel for a past abortion, we offer support in a Christ-Centered environment. Our goal is to show her the love, forgiveness, and freedom found in Christ to help her with whatever she’s facing. She can call or text us at (314) 313-1794.
Promote healthy relationships and Abstinence Education. Hand ‘n Hand can help promote practical information regarding healthy vs. unhealthy relationships, decision making skills, and why waiting until marriage is 100% the best practice! We will provide Biblical truth about God’s original design for sex and relationships and the consequences we see from those living outside of God’s design. Start the discussion here.
Invite us to speak. Celebrate the value of EVERY human life, anytime. We can give a broad brush overview of the ministry in about 3-5 minutes from the pulpit or be available for Sunday School or Mission Moments. To invite Hand ‘n Hand to speak at your church or simply dialogue about your options, contact us at 636 464-4505.
