LIFE TASK FORCE
Honoring the image of God in every person
At Church at the Cross, we believe that all life is important and valued by God, from womb to tomb. The Life Task Force seeks to mobilize and equip the church to care for the vulnerable and marginalized in our culture. The focus will be on three key areas: Foster Care and Adoption, New Life Advocacy, and Senior Care and Dementia. Each of these teams will advocate, educate, and train the church to respond to the needs around us.
NEW LIFE ADVOCACY
In Genesis 1:26-27, we learn that we are made in the image of God, and therefore, are of great value to God. Through New Life Advocacy, we want to value every human life (born and pre-born). In partnering with Human Coalition, Cura Women’s Clinic, and Mercy House, our goal is to show compassion and mercy to the mother, while maintaining our deeply held belief of protecting the pre-born.

FOSTER CARE & ADOPTION ADVOCACY
James 1:27 says, “Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress . . .” The key in this passage is to care for those who are in distress. We believe the best way to care for orphans is to place them in the homes of loving families. Through adoption and foster care, Church at the Cross seeks to help children who are in distress.

SENIOR ADULT CARE ADVOCACY
Colossians 3:12 says, “Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience.” Paul was speaking of putting to death the sinful nature and becoming alive in Christ. Part of his instruction was to put on compassion and kindness. A growing problem in our culture is the need to care for the elderly, particularly those struggling with dementia. We desire to show compassion and kindness by learning how to best support families who are caring for those with dementia.
