Love a LifE projects

"How do we persuade a woman not to have an abortion? 

As always, we must persuade her with LOVE."

Love a Life at Great Lakes Church is a safe and non-judging place for young women to turn to when they find out they are pregnant and we hope to be the hands and feet of Jesus by showing them God's unconditional love and grace! We are on a fierce mission to support, encourage + love on young, single expecting mamas who are facing unplanned pregnancies in our community.

  • Twice a year, Love a Life hosts a Community Baby Shower for expecting single mamas from our local community who are in-need.  During the shower, we host educational break-out sessions to learn more about what to expect when Baby arrives and we hope to arm the mothers with resources + lots of encouragement! We raffle off large door prizes for Baby and you can shop our gently-used baby clothes. Our recent Community Baby Shower was held in August of 2017, so our next one is scheduled for the Spring 2018. Please check back for details!

  • Are you single and facing an unplanned pregnancy? Please know you are not alone! You are invited to join Love a Life's Embrace Grace Support Group on Thursday evenings at 6:00PM at Great Lakes Church. Through this support group, you'll make new friends in similar circumstances + receive a baby shower with new baby items. Our vision is that you will be inspired + hope-filled through an awesome support system! 

    Our next Embrace Grace group will be starting this Fall 2017.

  • Baby Holding Outreach

    Do you love to hold + cuddle with babies? This is for you! For this outreach service opportunity, we will be going to our local hospital's NICU and volunteer to be Baby Holders for the NAS babies (Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome), or baby who are born addicted to drugs and are being weened off the drug. If you are comfortable working with an open, no stones heart with these NAS babies, don't mind loving on + holding a screaming baby, and want to join us, please let us know!

  • Diaper Drive for Right to Life Month (January)

    January is the National Right to Life month, commemorating the Roe vs. Wade ruling in 1973 that legalized abortion in America. We pray for an end to abortion and for the hearts of women facing these difficult decisions. Love a Life hosts a diaper drive to support our local pro-life pregnancy center, Cornerstone for mothers who need diapers for their little ones.

  • Baby Bottle Blessings for Respect Life Month (October)

    October is Respect Life month and Love a Live hosts a Baby Bottle Blessing at GLC. We pass out plastic baby bottles for our members to fill with loose change, dollars and any other donations they are willing to offer. Everything collected is sent directly to Cornerstone, our local pro-life pregnancy center. They estimate that it takes $41 to service each of their clients and our 2015 Baby Bottle Blessing raised $407 - enough to help nearly 10 clients!
