"And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free." John 8:32
If you have had an abortion and are hurting, your feelings are normal. You are not alone. We invite you to join our Post-Abortion Support Group where you will find care and understanding. Using Scripture and the workbook, Forgiven & Set Free, A Post-Abortion Bible Study, by Linda Cochran, along with fellowship and prayer, we look to Jesus Christ as our Guide, our Comfort, and our Savior.
The healing process takes time and is helped by the support and understanding of others who listen and care.

STATEMENT OF PURPOSE
The purpose of PACE Ministry, under the authority of Perimeter Church is to offer assistance to women who are experiencing difficulty as a result of a past abortion, through sensitive, compassionate, and confidential support. As lay counselors, we do not provide therapy but will make referrals to professional counseling as requested or required. Using the infallible word of God as our guide, our goal is to aid women in their own emotional and spiritual healing realizing that the choice for healing is theirs alone. As the foundation to our ministry we claim John 8:32, where our Lord states, "And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free."

Symptoms may include: guilt, depression, anxiety, anger, feelings of emptiness, difficulty with intimacy, frequent crying, intense desire to become pregnant again, anniversary reaction, feelings of hopelessness, troubled relationships, suicidal urges, drug/alcohol abuse, nightmare, flashbacks to the abortion, anorexia or other eating disorders, difficulty in bonding with children, and alienation from God.
