Our Mission

Mercy CCPC provides biblically based volunteer peer counselling and support services in the greater Reading area for individuals and families.

Our goal is to communicate the truth about “safe” sex and abortion and to help men and women cope with the after effects of an abortion.

Located in the heart of downtown Reading, Mercy serves people throughout Berks County.

Individuals and families facing an unplanned pregnancy are welcome to come to Mercy CCPC to learn about the options that are available. It is not necessary for anyone to face this situation alone. Making an educated decision takes place at Mercy as available information and resources are explored.

Individuals and families who have experienced an abortion are welcome to participate in our post abortion Bible Study, forgiveness and healing is offered through Christ.

Our Goal

While abortion is legal in our country, individuals and families facing an unplanned pregnancy need to make an informed decision. The decision to have an abortion will have a lifetime impact. It is Mercy’s goal to present the truth about the risks, emotional aftermath and spiritual impact of making such a decision.

Mercy is…

Pro-Life • Evangelical • Urban

We are a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization in existence to support individuals and families facing an unplanned pregnancy by ministering the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Mercy Community Crisis Pregnancy Center was founded in 1989 and opened our doors in 1990. The ministry was founded to offer individuals and families facing an unplanned pregnancy an alternative to abortion. Mercy is a place to meet Christ, to learn how to be a better parent, and a place to have one’s heart and life changed for time and eternity.

Mercy staff includes a full-time director and administrative assistant. Volunteers meet with clients, organize the resource room, assist with fundraising events, building upkeep, and special projects.
