The Life Team of Fair Oaks Church is piloting a "first-of-its-kind resource" to equip the church minister to women and men considering abortion. Last fall the Team participated in a DVD training, Making Life Disciples, from Care Net, a national organization of pregnancy centers.
"This curriculum is just outstanding! It covers listening skills, 'care-frontation', pregnancy and abortion education, and life-affirming alternatives," said Amy Scherschligt, leader of the team.
She affirmed the team is now equipped to offer compassion, hope, help and discipleship to anyone in the church or community in an unsupported pregnancy. "We are taking a missionary mindset; we are not counselors. We just don't want anyone to be alone in a difficult pregnancy decision," Amy said.
