A gospel singing event will be hosted to benefit the Shreveport Pregnancy Center. The pregnancy center is located in south Shreveport and serves DeSoto and other parishes in the area. They offer free pregnancy tests, options counseling, community referrals and parenting/prenatal classes. For mothers choosing to parent, their programs allow families to earn free baby materials. This ministry offers hope to women in crisis with practical resources and spiritual support through the gospel of Jesus Christ.
In 2020 Shreveport reported that over 3,500 abortions were provided, more than any other city in the state. With that number increasing in 2021, SPC stepped up to meet the needs of the many women seeking factual information and resources. They seek to not only save women from the spiritual and physical destruction abortion causes but to educate and empower them with the tools needed to encourage a better life for them and their children.
The gospel singing event will also include a silent auction, food, and fellowship. The event is free to the public and will be streamed on facebook.com/shreveportpc where you will find a link to make donations.
