Created in His Image
As Christians we know that every human life is a gift from God, created on Purpose, with Purpose for a Purpose. But when women face unplanned pregnancies, abortion often seems like the only solution, and these tiny lives – human beings without a voice – are ended before they breathe their first breath. Help women learn the truth and find hope for what they are facing by partnering with Heartbeats. Your church partnership promotes the sanctity of human life in our community, giving a voice to the voiceless and sharing the unconditional love of Christ to women in need.
5 EASY WAYS YOUR CHURCH CAN HELP
Saving a baby from abortion in our community costs the pregnancy center $1,200 on average. Ask your church to partner with Heartbeats for regular, monthly giving. At just $100 each month, your church will save a baby this year.
Hold A Baby Shower
Consider hosting a baby shower event at your church to collect new baby items to donate to Heartbeats. These tangible gifts will then be given to moms who choose life and provide the material support they need to face each day with courage.
Baby Bottle Boomerang
Introduce your church to Heartbeats by requesting to run our Baby Bottle Boomerang. Heartbeats will provide you with baby bottles to distribute to your congregation to fill with loose change, cash and checks. At the end of one month, these individuals return the bottles to the church and Heartbeats will come and collect them. Your change will change lives!
Prayerfully consider donating your time toward the Kingdom work at Heartbeats. You can commit to volunteering for as little as a few hours each week to share the love of Christ with women in need. For more information on volunteering, visit this link: Volunteer.
HOW HEARTBEATS CAN PARTNER WITH YOU
When you partner with the pregnancy center, we also partner with YOU through referrals and speaking opportunities.
Refer Women in Need
When a woman reaches out to your church for help, refer her to Heartbeats. Whether she is facing an unplanned pregnancy or seeking help for a past abortion, the pregnancy center offers her support in a Christ-centered environment. Our goal is to show her the unconditional love, forgiveness and freedom found in Christ to help her with what she’s facing.
Heartbeats has a post-abortion recovery program called Begin the Healing. Statistics tell us that 1 in 3 women have experienced the pain of abortion. Thousands of men and women in our community are walking around with a lot of hurt and self-condemnation, shackled in fear and guilt. Your church can refer post-abortive women to our Confidential Bible Study, Forgiven and Set Free. This is a small group study where women can find peace from the guilt and shame an abortion can cause, learn how to forgive themselves by finding forgiveness in Christ and break free from their chains, restoring their relationships and draw closer to God. (If you church would like to start a men’s post-abortion recovery program, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.)
Invite a Speaker
Celebrate the value of EVERY human life by inviting a Heartbeats speaker to your church. Topics include Sanctity of Human Life, Sexual Risk Avoidance, Post-Abortion recovery, and Abortion. We also have various media available to you such as bulletin inserts, pamphlets and video resources. And don’t forget National Sanctity of Life every January. National Sanctity of Life Sunday is the third Sunday of January.
