Community Life is our Church Partnership Program. It exists to equip members at local churches to become safe, educated, and responsible encouragers for
those facing an unplanned pregnancy, those considering abortion and those having experienced abortion. Our desire is to connect our clients to the church –
a healthy body equipped to provide support and life discipleship long after they leave our care.
70% of women who choose abortion self-identify as Christian.
1 in 3 women was attending a Christian church regularly at the time of their first abortion.
Less than half of post-abortive women believe the church is prepared to help discuss their options in making an unplanned pregnancy decision.
More than half of churchgoers who have had an abortion report that no one at church knows they have had a terminated pregnancy. LifeWay Research (2015)
As we consider these statistics, we are compelled to respond by offering the Church the equipping tools needed to change this narrative.
Making Life Disciples is a small group training course that equips members of every church community to champion compassion, extend hope, and offer help to the hurting and unconfessed in their midst, specifically, men and women facing an unplanned pregnancy decision and those who have experienced an abortion. It is our desire to see the Church made whole. Making Life Disciples will help church leaders and members effectively address present and past pregnancy decisions, as well as other vulnerable and hidden struggles within our church communities. Those who take this interactive training will lead the way in building the church as a safer place to heal.
Today’s teenager is navigating a nearly constant flow of conflicting messages about sexual expression, and parents are often left trying to time in random messages of Biblical sexuality. The Whole Sex Talk is a Biblically-based, six-session multimedia program that empowers parents to have healthy, ongoing conversations with their kids about love, sex, and relationships. This program is based on years of teaching similar content in schools and churches throughout West Michigan, and can be used individually, as a couple, with your kids, or in a small group setting. The program includes six sessions on three DVDs that utilize short films, brutally honest parent and teen testimonials, expert panel interviews, and more.

“The safest place should be my church, but they didn’t know how to help me.
There wasn’t an area to say, ‘I have this hurt, fear, regret, shame, and
I don’t know what to do with it.’ I needed an invitation to speak.”
-Tam (Post-abortive, pastor's wife)
BABY BOTTLE CAMPAIGN
YOUR SPARE CHANGE CAN HELP SAVE LIVES!
Lakeshore Pregnancy Center provides church leadership with special baby bottles all year round. The church leadership distributes the bottles to the congregation which then has the opportunity to prayerfully fill the bottles with checks, cash, and change. Filled bottles are returned on a Sunday 3-4 weeks later. Arrangements are made with LPC for the return of bottles. For more information visit: lpcenters.com/baby-bottle-campaign
