Forgiven & Set Free - Abortion Recovery Support Group

Forgiven & Set Free - Abortion Recovery Support Group

  • Lakes Area Pregnancy Support Center (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

You made an informed choice, but you had no idea how that choice would affect you.

Maybe you suffer from depression, eating disorders or an increase in drug and alcohol use. Do you ever have thoughts of suicide, difficulty sleeping, flashbacks, or just feel bad about yourself? Do you avoid conversations or television programs that deal with abortion or feel uncomfortable around pregnant women? Are your relationships suffering?

All these can be common after-effects of an abortion experience.

Forgiven and Set Free is an abortion recovery book study that is Bible based. The small group meets once weekly for 10 weeks and is confidential and free of charge.

5:30-7pm

Let us help with a safe place to begin to heal.

If you would like more information please call us at 218-825-0793 or email us at laps@lakesareapregnancy.org

Matching Fund Ends September 15th!

Water Damage

This past month we have seen a influx of new clients. In the past two weeks alone, we have had 8 new clients and 47 total client appointments - and this is just at the Brainerd center! We are thankful that those who need our services are finding us, but an increase in client load means an increase in expenses.

At the same time, we are remodeling the front exterior of the building. Last week, workers uncovered a considerable amount of water damage, which will increase the costs significantly. We need your support this summer to offset these unforeseen costs.

We have a special matching donor opportunity available to you now through September 15th. All donations received or postmarked by that date will be matched up to $20,000. You can choose to give to client care costs or building renovation costs - either way, your gift will be DOUBLED during this time allowing you to make twice the impact.

Please consider giving while this matching offer is in effect.
