There is a mission field right here in our local Christian church communities!

The Church

is in a fierce spiritual battle for the Imago Dei—the image of God. A child is hidden for nine months in the womb—but also sanctified in the womb by the Lord Jesus Christ, who came as an embryo to identify with humanity so that each tiny child might reflect Christ’s glory to the world. Many women who are contemplating ending their pregnancy, are sitting in our church pews prior to and after their decision to have an abortion.
If abortion and the value of human life is rarely discussed within our local church bodies, the implication then is we end up with people who think the church does not have much to offer in this regard.  Silence on this theological issue makes a loud statement of indifference to church members and to the surrounding culture.
“What statement is the church making and do our actions honor God and defend human life because we are made after the very image of God Himself?”

Crucial Stats

  • 24% of women will have an abortion by age 45
  • 70% of women claim Christianity as their spiritual worldview at the time of their abortion
  • 1 in 3 women attend church at least 1x/month at the time of their first abortion
  • 61% of women who abort have at least one child
  • 95% of abortions are elective
  • 63% of all abortions are chemical (abortion pill)
  • Abortions have increased since the overturning of Roe
  • Approximately 4000 searches for the abortion pill are performed monthly within a 15-mile radius of PPS (Hiram)

How PPS Can Help

There is a mission field right here in our local church bodies and the enemy wants us to remain silent! We understand how difficult these conversations can be, that is why Paulding Pregnancy Services has put together Life Builders Ministry. We want to help encourage, empower, and equip our local church bodies to understand the truth about abortion, how to talk with someone who may be facing an unexpected pregnancy, and why partnering with local PRCs is crucial. 

Your Next Steps

The Word gave life to everything that was created, and His life brought light to everyone. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness can never extinguish it.” John 1:4-5 NLT 
We need to talk! Since word-of-mouth is so influential to young people, our goal is to meet with local church bodies to equip you with information about abortion, its effect on the church, and how to have these weighty conversations with those who are vulnerable to abortion.  We will start by meeting with your Pastor then followed by meeting with additional church groups such as women and men's ministries, life groups, youth and young adult groups, etc. If you are interested in learning more about such an important ministry, be sure to reach out today!

Together we can make abortion unthinkable!
