I Was Afraid to Keep Praying for Pregnancy

“Why can’t you just be happy for me and let it go?” I remarked to a friend, who insisted we keep praying for pregnancy. After being diagnosed with lupus at age 27, I was prescribed a plethora of toxic meds and told any potential pregnancy would be high risk. The fear of all the “what ifs” almost kept my husband and me from trying altogether. My sister also has an autoimmune disease, and she gave birth to a healthy baby boy, so we remained hopeful. But as time passed, thoughts of hope and joy were replaced with doubt. The faith that once compelled me to pray and seek God was gradually displaced by the thought: It’s never going to happen.

Service begins at 10:00AM

Mark your calendars and set reminders in your phones, we will have just one single service this Sunday, June 4th beginning at 10:00 am.

We encourage all of you to stay afterwards for a church-wide social outside in the parking lot. We will have food trucks on-site serving lunch. It is also a wonderful opportunity to meet new faces and create new friendships.

We hope to see you there!
