We are excited to announce that First Church will launch a new outreach ministry in September. Saving Grace Ministries has been created to minister to those who have been affected directly or indirectly by an abortion decision. Our desire is to come alongside those who have previously had an abortion as well as the family and/or friends who have been affected by the decision. We know that abortion is a sensitive subject and a traumatic experience for anyone involved. We believe that God desires that His people have a voice in speaking truth and love into the hearts of hurting people. Please be in prayer for this ministry. More information will be coming soon. For specific questions, please feel free contact us at sgministriesfw@gmail.com.
