For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother's womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. –Psalm 139:13-14

We believe that all human life is made in God’s image and is valuable to God. In particular, we believe that advocating on behalf of the most vulnerable in our society, the preborn, is a vital and worthwhile task. We also recognize that abortion has affected many in our communities and that healing is found in Jesus alone.

Here are some ways to get involved:


Sanctity of Human Life (SOHL) Task Force: The Sanctity of Human Life Task Force is a group of people at College Church committed to praying for men and women in our community who are considering or have experienced abortion, praying for those directly involved in advocating for the unborn (individuals, pro-life organizations, authors, legislators), and educating and mobilizing our church to join in efforts to uphold and defend the value of human life. The SOHL Task Force meets at church the third Thursday of each month at 7 p.m. to pray, exchange updates and information related to the sanctity of human life, and plan different ways to involve our church community in these efforts. 

To join the SOHL meetings, or for more general information, contact sohl@college-church.org

Learn: No matter what stage of life we're in, one thing we can always do is continue to learn. Below are a few recommended resources.

 

Pray: We believe that prayer is an indispensible act of advocacy, and we invite you to commit to praying regularly for an end to abortion in the United States. Pray regularly with others in your neighborhood, small group or Adult Community for an end to abortion. If you'd like to pray with others who are specifically passionate about abortion, contact sohl@college-church.org
