Our vision is for every girl with an unplanned pregnancy to have a church to go to for spiritual, emotional, and physical support. We at The Bridge Church want to be that place.
Why we exist:
Most churches advocate life and discourage women from getting abortions, but once a brave and courageous girl chooses life, a lot of times the church then steps away and has nothing to offer her for support at that point. She is then left with nine months of being scared, worried and feeling alone. This is where the Body of Christ can minister to women who are desperately searching for a Savior. If the church, the Body of Christ, will join together to support these girls who choose life, young moms will be more open to not aborting their babies. Whether they keep their baby or choose adoption, Embrace grace is a support system for them as they begin their journey of being a young mother or blessing another family with their baby. Emotionally and spiritually healthy mommies parent emotionally and spiritually healthy babies.
What we do:
They work through a 12 week book study and video series. We also have special ministry nights. They are Testimony Night, Chains Night, Princess Day, and the Baby Shower. The baby shower is the “hook” that brought them. Some girls have no parental support so this may be the only shower they have. These girls also find people that can relate to their situation and understand all of the highs and lows of emotions that they are experiencing. They also sign a contract that they will attend no less than 70% of the classes to participate in the baby shower. This is a safe, no judgment zone! These girls are loved on and encouraged.
