As a church, we support local ministries and help love and serve Athens in various ways.

Abundant Life Pregnancy Center

The Abundant Life Pregnancy Resource Center was born from the belief that every life, from the moment of conception, is precious and holds value.

They are committed to sharing the message of abundant life in Christ, in order to save the lives of unborn babies at the risk of abortion and help families develop healthy parenting skills.  Their mission is to be a lifeline, for people experiencing pregnancy decisions and parenting needs, in a safe and encouraging environment.  They are devoted to providing life-affirming choices by offering faith-based hope, support, and compassion to those in need.
