Branches are Christian Life Resources groups that function generally within one Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod (WELS) or Evangelical Lutheran Synod (ELS) congregation. They are a legal entity of the congregation, as any other congregational organization. They affiliate themselves with WELS Lutherans for Life to avail themselves of the services of Christian Life Resources, to be identified with a national Christian pro-life effort and to provide encouragement to others in this ministry. They conduct an educational program primarily within the congregation and on behalf of the congregation.
Chapters of Christian Life Resources consist of members from more than one Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod (WELS) congregation (or one in fellowship with WELS) who have bound together as one group to conduct the work of Christian Life Resources. They are directly affiliated and responsible to the national organization of Christian Life Resources. They are separately incorporated and function in relation to the national office of Christian Life Resources (CLR). They affiliate with CLR to avail themselves of the national office's services, to be identified with a national Christian pro-life effort, and to provide encouragement to others in this ministry. Many of the Chapters operate Pregnancy Counseling Centers or Life Resource Centers to offer assistance and God's Word to women in crisis pregnancies.
Pregnancy Counseling Centers offer compassionate and confidential counseling as well as being an informational resource. Counselors listen and help those in need make informed decisions. Life Resource Centers exist for the purpose of providing information for all persons on various life issues, keeping as its foundation the Scriptural principles regarding the value of human life. Life Resource Centers will provide access to informational and educational materials on many different subjects relating to life issues such as abortion, physician assisted suicide, cloning, reproductive technology, parenting issues, stem cell research, birth control, and chastity. Life Resource Centers provide crisis pregnancy counseling, post-abortion counseling, and pastoral counseling, and other life-related counseling when requested and where available. Life Resource Centers are life-affirming, educational, and God-fearing institutions.
