Mission: To inspire and equip the church to show God’s love to single and pregnant young women and their families. To support and encourage women to raise their children and/or place their child in a loving adoptive home. To offer counseling, healing and grace for those who come to us who have chosen the abortive path and are struggling with their choice.
Vision: For every young woman with an unplanned pregnancy to have a place for support and love. We want the church to be the first place a mom runs,
to,instead of the last because of shame and guilt.
Curriculum: We will offer a12-week program for single and pregnant moms, which focuses on identity, value, worth, freedom and healing. All of the moms attending will hear the gospel and will be discipled in the ways of Christ. Each semester ends with a church hosted baby shower, where church members get to express love to the young moms and be the hands and feet of Jesus to strangers!
Embrace Grace Reach:
We partner with Pregnancy Centers through our Love in a Box Initiative: an invitational gift given to single and pregnant young women who just received a positive pregnancy test during their appointment at the pregnancy center. The gift encourages life-based decisions, offers hope, and personally invites them to join Embrace Grace group at The Light. We also have an outreach opportunity for those in the church to host a Share the Love Party where unassembled Love Boxes are provided to assemble together and then distribute to the local pregnancy centers, high school counseling/nursing offices or any other organization that serves single and pregnant young women.
We are Pro-Love at The Light!
