Embrace Grace C2C Church Seminole FL

We are so honored to be a part of Embrace Grace, and for our church to have a group available for all pregnant women to come and feel the love of Christ for them and for their unborn babies.

“Being Pro Life is a position, but being Pro Love is an action” – Amy Ford 

The Embrace Grace Group at C2C Church wants to be known more for what we are for, than what we are against. We want to be the first place a girl runs to when she finds out that she is pregnant, rather than the last because she goes because of shame and guilt. We might not be able to fix all of their problems, but we can point them to the One that does what to fix everything for them…Jesus!  

Our next 12-week session begins on April 7th. Please reach out to let us know if you will be attending. Or, for more information about how you can support Embrace Grace, you can also reach out to 727-230-9723 or email:

How Can You Have a Pro-Life Voice

C2C Church supports the efforts of our friends at Tampa Bay Pro-Life Alliance. On Thursday, November 4, 2021, they hosted a breakfast, and the following information was shared:

How Can You Have a National Voice:
If you would like to tell congress not to take innocent lives, you can click this link to go to and electronically sign the petition that will be sent to Senator Rubio and Senator Scott that shows you stand against the National Women’s Health Protection Act of 2021 H.R. 3755.

How Can You Have a State Voice:
If you click on the link below, you can sign the petition that shows you believe that all human beginnings have value. That fact does not change based on age, health, or level of ability. The Human Life Protection Amendment embeds this Truth in our state constitution. This is needed to prevent corruption of justice. With this amendment in place, we will know that human life is being protected in Florida. You can mail your form to PHLF, 14260 W Newberry Rd #420, Newberry, FL 32669 or bring them to church and we will mail it for you.
