Our Mission

Lois’ Lodge seeks to follow the example of Jesus Christ and provide shelter, practical love, care and support to women facing the challenges of an unexpected pregnancy in an environment that encourages them toward responsible choices and a stable future.

 Guiding Principles:

We seek to follow the example of Jesus Christ by demonstrating unconditional love for the women that we serve.

We seek to provide shelter within a home-like residential environment where each woman knows that she is a valued part of God’s family and the Lois’ Lodge family.

We seek to exhibit practical love through holistic ministries that assist in the development of life skills, career skills, and wise decision making.

We seek to provide care for both the mother and her unborn child through sound medical care, a healthy environment, pre-natal coaching, and wise counsel about parenting options.

We seek to offer support by encouraging faith, spiritual growth, emotional support, family counseling, mentoring and a sense of confidence which comes through the knowledge that God has a plan for each one of us.

We seek to provide a comprehensive program of care during and after each woman’s pregnancy.

We seek to create an environment of encouragement by surrounding the women in our care with trained staff and volunteers who respect them as individuals, and exhibit God’s love through both their actions and their words.

With gratitude to God for all He has provided, we seek to honor Christ in the pursuit of excellence in every aspect of the ministry of Lois’ Lodge and welcome women in need of our services without regard to race, religion or resources.

Statement of Faith:

Lois Lodge was founded in response to the Biblical call to care for the helpless, including children yet unborn. We believe in the Triune God – Father, Son and Holy Spirit – and in the absolute truth and complete authority of the Holy Scripture. We believe that all have sinned and that apart from the work of Jesus Christ we are condemned. We believe that all who confess their sins and accept the gift of salvation are forgiven, adopted into the family of faith as new creatures and assured of eternal life. We believe that prayer is essential in the life of believers and the highest priority for their ministries.

 Our Guiding Scripture
Psalm 139

“O LORD, you have searched me and you know me. You know when I sit and when I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar. You discern my going out and my lying down; you are familiar with all my ways. Before a word is on my tongue you know it completely, O LORD. 

You hem me in-behind and before; you have laid your hand upon me. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me, too lofty for me to attain. Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence?

If I go up to the heavens, you are there; if I make my bed in the depths, you are there. If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast. If I say, “Surely the darkness will hide me and the light become night around me,” even the darkness will not be dark to you; the night will shine like the day, for darkness is as light to you.

For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.

How precious to me are your thoughts, O God! How vast is the sum of them! Were I to count them, they would outnumber the grains of sand. When I awake, I am still with you . . . Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.”
