River Oak Church in Chesapeake hosted a mid-winter 2017 gathering of Women’s Ministry leaders from several cities in the Southeast Region. In addition to participating in a workshop about the use of technology and social media in ministry, the leaders had the blessing of learning about the ministry of the Crisis Pregnancy Center (CPC) of Tidewater.
Lexi Judy, the CPC’s community outreach coordinator, shared how the CPC’s purpose expands beyond saving the life of the baby. Parenting classes allow couples, as well as single parents, to discover ways to care for, nurture, and provide the best for their children. It is at these classes, called Great Expectations, that the parents are presented with the Gospel. As Lexi puts it, “This is where most moms and dads accept Christ and how the journey of discipleship begins.”
The Women’s Ministry leaders came prepared with baby gifts from their respective churches to shower the CPC and its participants with love. All of the donated items will go directly to parents who participate in programs through the Crisis Pregnancy Center.
It takes all of us working together to make an impact in our communities. As the CPC strives to be a resource for the local church, it would not exist without partners. The SBC of Virginia Women’s Ministry considers it a great privilege to have been able to bless the CPC of Tidewater in this way!
