NEW PARENT SUPPORT
SPECIAL SUPPORT DURING THE CHILDBEARING YEARS
Becoming a parent for the first (or second… or fifth) time is hard! This is a period of some of the most intense feelings we may ever experience. At ALFC, we’re ready to meet young families in their real-life situations to minister to physical, social, educational, and spiritual needs. The church has a particular responsibility to families in their childbearing years: to encourage and equip families to invite Jesus into the process of becoming parents. We want to facilitate real community support around your family and help you approach birth and new parenthood with a spirit of power and of love (2 Timothy 1:7).
We achieve this through targeted education, counseling, in-home support (like meals and light housework), facilitating child dedications, and lots and lots of listening. In general, we like to customize the support we offer based on each family’s needs. We also have experience supporting families during pregnancy loss, stillbirth, and infant loss—please reach out!
