At Oak Hills Church, we believe all life is sacred and made in the image of God. Our Oak Hills vision is to courageously engage culture with the hope of Jesus where we live, work, learn and plan. One way we courageously engage our culture today is by standing up for the valuing of every human life. The Gospel compels us to share truth in love and to point people to the hope of Jesus, especially when facing difficult choices or fear of the unknown. We also know that God's abundant love and grace is available to all. The resources below can help equip you if you or someone you know is facing an unplanned pregnancy or carrying the burden of an abortion in their past.
CARE & COUNSELING
You are loved unconditionally and there is nothing you can do to earn or lose God’s love or ours. Jesus invites us all into a new life of freedom from guilt and shame, and offers us forgiveness, healing, and new beginnings moment by moment of each day. Our OHC Pastoral Care team would be honored to walk with you on this journey. Classes and care communities are available through our Care Ministry. Professional Christian counseling services are also available by appointment for adults, children, individuals, and couples. Our licensed counselors work from a biblically-based, solution-focused, clinically-competent process, guided by the Holy Spirit and informed by Scripture, to bring about healing, spiritual formation and Christ-centered living.
