In 2002 the teen pregnancy rate in Fayette County was 19.7%. Previously Fayette County was second per capita to Cook County in teen pregnancies. Many residents felt a need to seek a solution to this problem. God laid this need on the hearts of several people in various churches. The birth of the pregnancy center was an answer to the prayers of many residents in our community. Fast forward to 2016 and you will see the Lighthouse Pregnancy and Health Services offers free ultrasounds and STD testing to aid in our life saving mission. We are proud to be a part of a growing mission committed to living out the principles that we were taught through the life and instructions of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
Our staff is passionate about sharing the love of Christ, seeing lives changed and saving babies from abortion.
