If you heard Sunday’s sermon and find yourself wanting to take a next step towards caring for those who find themselves in an unplanned pregnancy or you yourself are seeking care we want to make sure you are connected with these three resources that our church offers.

You can fill out this form and we will reach out to set up a time. In addition, our Austin Stone Counseling Center provides professional counseling from a gospel-centered perspective that is always available to you here.

2. Austin Life Care - This organization has been serving the Austin area for over 30 years with the goal of meeting the needs of women, men and their families, who are facing an unplanned pregnancy. All services are provided free of charge. Please consider giving here to support these services continuing to be avaialble for those in need.

3. Sanctity of Life Seminar - Learn how to start a conversation with someone who is pro-choice and keep it productive.
