“In him, the whole building is joined together and rises to become a holy temple in the Lord. And in him, you too are being built together to become a dwelling in which God lives by his Spirit.” Eph 2:21-22 NIV
At its core, Crossroads Pregnancy Center is a group of friends joining together in a common mission—to reach out to those facing unplanned pregnancies, providing life-affirming hope and help with the love of Jesus Christ. The Holy Spirit living in us enables us to do God’s work here on earth. It’s that simple.
This group of friends is accomplishing more than we could have imagined when we opened 32 years ago. When we began we offered little more than free pregnancy tests and counseling. Today we provide a licensed medical clinic offering ultrasound and STD testing, in addition to parenting and fatherhood initiatives, material support through an “Earn While You Learn” incentive program, abstinence education in the schools, post-abortion recovery and so much more.
We recently purchased a house at 424 Washington Street in Huntingdon and many volunteers have been helping make our dream a reality—to finally have adequate space and a welcoming, peaceful environment in which to serve our clients. Many building materials and hours of labor are being donated by Crossroads friends in order to create a place where God can fulfill His plans for offering help, hope, and healing to those in need. We wish to give a big THANK YOU to all of those involved! And we are looking forward to a Grand Opening date as soon as the house is ready.
The building by itself is nothing but wood, nails, paint, and parts. Yet the building is much more than the sum of its parts. We see Beyond the Building to all the lives that we can touch as we move forward in this new place. We see Beyond the Building to a place where babies are welcomed to life, where women are given everlasting hope, where clients can experience a relationship with Jesus Christ.
We are asking friends – like you – to invest a special gift in helping us reach our “Beyond the Building” vision. The total amount needed to pay off the loan is currently at $48,546.53. Perhaps God has blessed you to be able to give a large one-time donation. But whether your investment is $10,000, $1,000, $100—or any other amount—each special gift toward this goal takes us one step closer to becoming better equipped to meet the needs of those in our community facing life changing decisions.
When we are able to counsel and give support, a difference is made. Of the women who enter our doors vulnerable to abortion, approximately 75% choose life after receiving counsel and support from CPC. His name will be praised for generations to come! Would you please pray and ask the Lord if He would want you to give a special gift to CPC’s Beyond the Building vision? We know that He is able to do exceedingly above (and beyond) anything we can imagine or think!
