Our God is a life-affirming God, and calls His people to affirm life as well — and to lovingly care for image bearers who are in life-vulnerable circumstances. God calls us to bold, risk-taking action: “If you faint in the day of adversity, your strength is small. Rescue those who are being taken away to death; hold back those who are stumbling to the slaughter.” – Proverbs 24:10-11.
After Sanctity of Life Sunday in 2016, a small group of people within Downtown Cornerstone Church felt convicted and called to respond to the alarming statistics of how this issue affects our city:
In response, the group began The LIFE Project, which targeted two connected areas of need: Pregnancy Crisis Support and Adoption/Foster Care. The Pregnancy Crisis Support team partnered with CareNet, the largest pregnancy crisis resource in the Puget Sound, to support their strategy of bringing a Mobile Medical Unit (MMU) to Seattle.
The Mobile Medical Unit is a bus that will serve women and families where there are currently no life-affirming pregnancy service available. The MMU has the flexibility to park near college campuses, churches, and community centers, reaching women right in their neighborhood for pregnancy testing, ultrasound appointments, and STI screenings. All services are provided for free. The statistics for the Mobile Medical Unit are staggering: 4 out of 5 women who board a Mobile Medical Unit choose life for their baby.
By God’s grace, working through your passion and generosity, Downtown Cornerstone Church helped support the purchase of the first Mobile Medical Unit for Seattle! The next step in our partnership with CareNet is to serve in ways that directly affect the Medical Mobile Unit.
