Pregnancy Center of the Coastal Bend
Their Mission:
The Mission of the Pregnancy Center of the Coastal Bend is to affirm the value of life by providing practical, emotional, and spiritual assistance to anyone experiencing pregnancy and abortion-related issues and compassionately proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
They provide Christ-centered care and support to children and families in need.
PCHAS’ mission is a restatement of the biblical call in James 1:27 that true religion is this: to look after orphans in their distress.
PCHAS believes that the most powerful way to help children is by strengthening their families. They accomplish this by living into their philosophy of care which is to be family centered, strength focused, and goal driven.
They are a faith-based Christian organization which strives to serve like Jesus. They meet their clients where they are and treat them with respect. They focus on their clients’ strengths rather than their problems. And they encourage their clients to focus on their future rather than their past. When done well, they help children and families find hope and know the love of God.

“In 1953, Good Samaritan Rescue Mission began as a little house church with only eight beds and a soup kitchen. That was the birth of a ministry that God intended to use to help literally hundreds of thousands of homeless men and women to find the Lord and to find themselves again. Now, as we celebrate 63 years of continual ministry and service to the homeless, we have grown to 213 beds and our little soup kitchen has served over two million meals.
“For people who are homeless, the bottom has dropped out of their world, and they are left with just memories of better days. Many suffer with depression, confusion, bitterness, and fear for their future. Good Sam exists for so much more than food and shelter. We want to help them get their life back ~ or begin a new one with a fresh start. We want to help them become independent and stable ~ and REMAIN stable, which takes far more effort than running them through on a conveyor belt of various programs.
“Will you help us today to give a fresh start to a discouraged, homeless person?”

Scouts BSA Troop 2, a ministry of First Presbyterian Church, provides an opportunity for those between the ages of 11 and 18 years to learn leadership and outdoor skills that will be important for them throughout their lives.
Troop 2 is large enough to provide a quality Scouting experience and small enough to provide personal attention to each Scout. You are more than just a number in Troop 2. In addition to experience, we also have the equipment and resources needed to make Scouting enjoyable.

It is our mission to raise up vulnerable children in a loving environment and equip each of them with the tools they need to be confident, competent, Christ-centered leaders. By providing children with safe shelter, quality education, balanced nutrition, health education, faith training and vocational opportunity, we are launching a generation of Godly leaders who will be a force for positive change throughout Africa.
