Coming in 2017: PCC New Lowell Center Location

Faithful Christians have saved the lives of nearly five thousand children through their 31 years of support of the Pregnancy Care Center. As we expand operations to Lowell, which is home to 110,000 residents including 26,800 college students, we have an opportunity to reach more men and women of all ages, save many more lives and lead hearts to Christ. With your help we can begin to provide the Greater Lowell community with the counseling, education, and support so desperately needed.

Help Us Save Lives

Pray
Prayer is our biggest need and we can provide specific prayer needs on a regular basis to you by email.

Missions Support
Missions programs vary by church. Some give by monthly contributions, others give quarterly or one annual financial gift. We gratefully appreciate your financial support.

Refer Potential Clients
Someone you know or hear about might be facing a crisis pregnancy or suffering from a post abortion experience. We can help. Our services are confidential and free. Our post abortion program is a bible study (Forgiven & Set Free for women and Healing A Father’s Heart for men). Our peer facilitators are women and men with special training to help others work through recovery. Placing posters and PCC brochures in your church generates awareness for the program.

Volunteer
There are many volunteer opportunities available. All skills are needed. All you need is a heart to serve. For a list of volunteer opportunities, visit our donor website www.PCCFriends.org.

Invite a Pro-Life Speaker to Your Church
We are available to speak at your church or upcoming Pro Life event. We can provide excellent speakers who offer factual, relevant information and personal testimony video presentations.

Host a Pro-Life Event
Host a baby shower or organize a group of volunteers to come to the PCC to fold baby clothes and stock the food pantry shelves. There are many ‘hands on’ ways to raise visibility for pro-life in your church.

Start a Baby Bottle Campaign
We provide special baby bottles that proclaim God's gift of children and bulletin inserts for your use. Families are asked to take the bottles home and collect change (cash or checks) for a period of about 3 weeks. Bottles are then returned to the church and we/PCC arrange pick up.
