Our Community Outreach:
Pregnancy Care Center of Petoskey

While joyfully serving Jesus Christ, we seek to assist, support, and encourage others in our community.  We have chosen to partner with the Pregnancy Care Center of Petoskey and support their goal of helping each woman understand her pregnancy options, make an informed choice, and provide encouragement and support through education, counseling, and aid. 

To acknowledge that every human life begins at conception and is worthy of protection. Pregnancy Care Center of Petoskey offers compassion, hope, and help to anyone considering an abortion by presenting them with realistic alternatives and Christ-centered support through education, medical care, and empowerment.

Pregnancy Care Center of Petoskey is a charitable, non-political, non-denominational, locally funded organization formed to help all persons who are experiencing an unplanned pregnancy. For over 20 years Pregnancy Care Center of Petoskey has been serving men and women with a specific dedication to those most vulnerable to an abortion due to an unplanned pregnancy.

This summer executive director Lisa Ernsberger will speak to our congregation about the good work Pregnancy Care Center does in our community, and share how the Bay Harbor Church is helping them achieve their goals.
