CareNet Pregnancy Center: Savings lives today and for eternity

If you come across someone in a crisis pregnancy or someone suffering from post-abortion guilt, do you know the location of your local crisis pregnancy center so you can refer them there?  If so, you may save a life today and for eternity.  Care Net Pregnancy Center helps women in need with many things — all for free!
  • Counseling
  • Pregnancy tests
  • Ultrasounds
  • Education
    • Prenatal education
    • Parenting and baby care
    • Practical life skills
    • Spiritual growth
  • Clothing, cribs, diapers, formula, baby Food
  • Men’s ministry
  • Post-abortion trauma counseling
  • The Gospel!

I gave an overview of Care Net at our church service last Sunday and emphasized the need for people to be aware of it.  I referred to one friend in the congregation who had pointed someone to Care Net and saved an untold amount of carnage in one family.  The situation was very ugly at the start but the couple ended up getting married and have a beautiful 4 yr. old boy, and having Care Net there made a big difference.

Then there was this note from her today:

Wanted to let you know that a lady sitting next to me at church on Sunday was so happy to hear your message about CareNet.  She started crying and hugged me.  She said that she knew God sent her to church for this reason….her granddaughter is a single, pregnant women considering abortion.  As soon as she let go I went back to look for some brochures on CareNet . . . she was grateful and is going to talk to her granddaughter about CareNet.

Please pray that this woman finds the support she needs and makes the right choice.

If you volunteer at a crisis pregnancy center, donate money or pray, that is much appreciated.  But if you just know they exist and point people there that is great, too.

Make no mistake: It is a matter of when, not if you’ll meet or hear of someone who needs the forgiveness, hope and healing that only Jesus can provide.

If you point people to CareNet, God may use you to help save lives today and for eternity.

  1. To me, this is one of the neatest ministries. The “economics” of abortion has always bothered me. You have a woman who has a “resource” (pre-born child) and doesn’t want it. There are PLENTY of other women out there who crave that child. Why should the first woman throw away the resource? Why not give it to the second woman?

    I know this is only aspect of the issues around abortion, but Crisis Pregnancy Centers nationwide face this (and other issues) daily and resolve it in a non-condemning way.

    Thanks for being a part of this ministry.

    1. Hi Marty,

      Thanks for the link. They look like a terrific organization. I think I’ve met their leaders at some board training sessions that the national CareNet group puts on.
