LifeNetwork’s history dates back to 1983 when it was started in response to skyrocketing abortion rates following the 1973 Roe vs. Wade decision, which legalized abortion on demand for any reason, at any stage of development. Today, the ministry has grown to be far more than a crisis pregnancy center.
What does Life Network do?
Participants watch videos, attend classes and complete homework assignments to earn credits that are exchanged in the Baby Boutique – a free clothing closet. Not only does this help develop great parenting skills for clients, but it provides the opportunity for long-term relationships to develop with LifeNetwork staff, which leads to greater opportunities for sharing the gospel, and discipleship. LifeNetwork provides hope, education, encouragement, and healing to many.
How is MPC involved?
Being a congregation that has so many young families Life Network was a great ministry partner for us. Meridian Point gives 5% of all that is committed to our ministry each year to support Life Network. In 2013 MPC was the second biggest financial provider for Life Network. We also serve by gathering materials (clothes, diapers, baby furniture, etc.), volunteering at their main building, and raising awareness in the community.
