  • Sanctity of Life Resource Guide

    Ward Church General 1 week ago

    We believe that ALL PEOPLE are made in the image of God regardless of a person’s age, gender, ethnicity, economic status, or any other variables.  Advocating for life unequivocally includes advocating for the unborn.  But we must advocate for life at every stage.

    This is a divisive moment in our culture. While our culture presents us with a false dichotomy that we can either support only women or only children, we believe the Gospel compels us to love both women and children. Therefore, we are committed to supporting and encouraging mothers and women broadly while at the same time affirming the value of children at every stage of life.

    Below you will find a list of resources for education and involvement:

    Anti-trafficking Ministry

    Gateway 328 is a ministry of Ward Church that connects people to resources and organizations that stand at the forefront of the fight against human trafficking in the Metro Detroit area and around the world. There are many “gateways” into human trafficking that a vulnerable person might encounter. But the love of God is the door through which Gateway 328 hopes to lead those caught in the web of human trafficking and exploitation. Our guiding verse is Galatians 3:28: “There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.”

    Healing Hearts Ministries

    Healing Hearts is an organization that provides Biblical counsel and discipleship to individuals who suffer emotionally and spiritually from the pain, trauma, and affliction of their past. They provide post-abortion care for women and Biblically lead healing for trauma such as rape and abuse.
