SS intro snip%2c v.2.JPG

We engage in life issues:

“For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.” (Eph. 2:10).

The mission of the Twin Oaks PCA Life Team is to equip and encourage the membership and missionaries of Twin Oaks PCA to become gospel-driven, life-affirming champions of the sanctity of human life.  We do this by:

  • Steeping ourselves in the gospel

  • Integrating life issues into the church’s ministries and outreach.

  • Serving the church by teaching, facilitating, engaging, encouraging, and equipping


Some Photos From Our Recent Foster Family Night

One person wrote of the evening,

This was a wonderful event! I know it took a lot of planning and organization! Thank you for all that you and the volunteers did to bless us!  The dinner was delicious, the kids had a ton of fun, and the parents were greatly blessed to be with like minded folks for a couple hours. So many of our foster/adopt families feel alone in the journey. They do not have other foster/adopt families in the community or church. Providing time for these parents time to be with other parents who know their struggles and can appreciate their joy in the small steps or progress is critical.
