We live in extraordinary times! God´s timetable for bringing His message of hope is accelerating, and as a result, more people are coming to know Jesus Christ than any other time in history. We have the privilege of advancing His plan by bringing His redemptive message to a lost world. We accomplish this by going into our local communities and serving others through the work of other nonprofit agencies. Below are numerous community service opportunities for you to get involved!

LPRC is committed to assisting couples facing needs due to unplanned pregnancy. All services are free and confidential.
