Titus 2:3-5 (ESV) 
Older women likewise are to be reverent in behavior, not slanderers or slaves to much wine. They are to teach what is good, and so train the young women to love their husbands and children,  to be self-controlled, pure, working at home, kind, and submissive to their own husbands, that the word of God may not be reviled.


We embrace single women, in their teens and twenties, who are facing an unplanned pregnancy and those who are parenting. We also come alongside women who have had an abortion. We embrace each woman and extend God's love and care, while sharing the beautiful Gospel message of grace, forgiveness, healing, redemption and hope.

Facing an Unplanned Pregnancy?

If you are facing an unplanned pregnancy, we are here to help. Here are a few resources and opportunities.

  • First Care Pregnancy Center offers comprehensive services, free of charge, including pregnancy testing, ultrasounds, pregnancy counseling and information, adoption services, referrals and resources, and parenting education.
  • Join our Embrace Grace group. Whether you are planning to parent or pursue adoption, this group will provide a place for you to make new friends in similar circumstances and find hope-filled support and encouragement.
  • If you would like to connect with a woman who has experienced an unplanned pregnancy, we are glad to connect you. This could be an ongoing mentoring relationship or a one-time meeting. E-mail Kirsten at if you're interested.

Embrace Grace: A Group for Single Pregnant Women

Embrace Grace provides emotional, practical, and spiritual support for single pregnant women, in their teens and twenties, who are facing an unintended pregnancy. This 12-week program teaches young women about God’s love and grace, and at the end, we throw a baby shower or an adoption celebration to honor them for choosing life and to help provide for their babies’ needs.

We use the program and curriculum provided through Embrace Grace Ministries. For more information about this program, visit embracegrace.com.

Embrace Life: A Group for Single Moms

Embrace Life equips single, new moms, in their teens and twenties, so they can learn to flourish in their relationship with God and not only survive in life but thrive! These brave moms will learn spiritual and practical ways to help navigate their way through life so they can rediscover their capabilities, passions, and dreams. Embrace Life meets weekly and includes a fall semester (Sep-Dec) and a spring semester (Feb-May). Each semester ends with a Life Adventure Day focused on blessing each mom in a fun way. We use the program and curriculum provided through Embrace Grace Ministries. For more information about this program, visit embracegrace.com.

For moms who completed Embrace Life, we now offer Embrace Life PLUS. This group follows the same schedule as Embrace Life and focuses on spiritual growth (walking with Jesus in every day life), while addressing practical areas such as parenting, career planning, budgeting.

Embrace Hope: A Post-Abortion Support Group

This nine-week confidential group is for women who have had one or more abortions and covers forgiveness, anger, shame, and the renewing of one's mind in Christ. We embrace each woman on her journey towards hope and healing.

Pure Desire for Women

Pure Desire for Women groups are led by women from Grace Church who have struggled with a husband in the battle for purity or have been in the struggle themselves. Groups are designed to provide women a safe place to process their experiences, build a lifestyle of accountability, and then heal by finding hope, help, and encouragement in God.

WifeLine: for wives dealing with their husband's sexual betrayal

How did he get this way? How can I tell if he is getting better? Can I ever trust him again? What do I do now? The Betrayal and Beyond Series was designed to answer these questions and more. Created to be experienced in a group setting, this resource provides valuable tools, biblical wisdom, and testimonies by courageous women who found hope, help, and encouragement through their personal journey of dealing with their husband's sexual betrayal.
