Warning and Welcome
Abby's Baptism

Rev. Andy Nagel & the Clark family at Abby's baptism

by Andy Nagel

Words of warning:

"Some parents may choose to terminate the pregnancy."

A pastor talks about the words of warning that too often lead parents to abortion and the story (see My Adoption Testmony below) of a courageous family that chose instead to live out the gospel words of welcome by opening their own home to an orphan with Down Syndrome. Read the article here.

My Adoption Testimony

Emma & Abby

by Nina Clark

I could never have imagined how much joy Emma and Abby would bring to our family. To say that a special needs child is a lot of work is an understatement, but it is worth all the work when I see their beautiful faces light up with joy. I see them dancing happily to music. I hear Abby babble and squeal with delight as she chases after Emma across the kitchen floor. I hear Abby laugh when Emma tickles her...I see my sons playing with them, picking them up, and saying they love them....I can't help but thank God that He chose our family for a child with Down's syndrome!

...There is no peace between truth and a lie.
Lies always lead to more evil. Take Planned Parenthood...In the last few weeks two new videos have recorded Planned Parenthood staff telling those involved in the sex trafficking of minor girls as young as age 13 how to cover up their unlawful abuse...If you don't believe it, watch these two videos for yourself.

The church maintains a display of PPL materials in Narthex. Those materials were instrumental in attracting at least one new member couple to their church. The pastor is up front with the pro-life stance of the congregation when talking with new member classes.
