Life Ministry

What is FT4Life?

FT4Life team members are blessed to be trained and certified by Lutherans for Life, a service organization of the Lutheran Church–Missouri Synod, our national church body. The life team is a group of gospel-motivated voices for the sanctity of human life from conception to God’s appointed time for death. We endeavor to bring light and understanding to tough issues of our day in a caring, nonjudgmental way, offering beauty and hope through God’s forgiveness and love.

Foster Awareness Month

The month of May is designated as Foster Awareness Month, so FT4Life’s focus for May is Fostering Hope for Foster Families. We have a wonderful program planned for Saturday, May 22 from 10:30 – Noon, including a panel of foster parents and a representative from Every Child Ministry, which supports fostering in numerous ways.

Check out the full details and register here.

Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after widows and orphans in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.

James 1:27

The CompassCare Connection

CompassCare operates professional medical offices in Buffalo and Rochester, with staff dedicated to serving women facing unplanned pregnancies by transforming their fear into confidence. 

This past Christmas, First Trinity collected a special offering for CompassCare.  How fitting it is to support an organization which helps women dealing with an unexpected pregnancy, when Mary’s pregnancy was also unexpected!  In response, CompassCare’s Regional Executive in Buffalo, Dr. Dean Condon, sent this thank you video to the people of First Trinity:  

If you know someone who is struggling with an unplanned pregnancy, please refer them to or call their office at 716-800-2306 (Buffalo) or 585-232-2350 (Rochester).

From the Lutherans for Life website: 

“In this day and age of soundbites and cliche phrases, we communicate clearly that death is not an acceptable, God-pleasing way to deal with the problems of life, and that that there is a better way…the Gospel: Lutherans For Life (LFL) applies the Good News of the Gospel of Jesus Christ to sanctity of life issues, making Jesus known as the Son of God and Savior of all, who can help and make a difference in people’s lives. 

The life issues of our time are much more than controversial political issues. They are grave spiritual issues, for they assault the Creator of Life and insult the Lord of Life.

Our work equips Lutherans to be positive, life-affirming voices that uphold the truth of the God-given value of human life, both in local congregations and in society.”
