Our Common Prayer

  God save us from being self-centered in our prayers, and teach us to remember to pray for others. May we be so bound up in love with those for whom we pray that we may feel their needs as acutely as our own, and intercede for them with sensitiveness, with understanding and with imagination. This we ask in Christ’s name. Amen                                                                                                                                                                      

I have set the Lord always before me; because he is at my right hand, I shall not be shaken

They uphold the sanctity of human life in every aspect. They provide pregnancy testing, ultra-sound exams, abortion risks, parenting programs and pregnancy loss recovery programs. They also sponsor a Get Real Healthy Relationship program for schools in an effort to prevent pregnancy and disease among our youth. They have a Baby Boutique where baby items are supplied through caring individuals and groups to help new mothers. All of their services are free and confidential. They hold two fundraisers a year.
