First Image has been working for over 30 years to live out God’s heart to renew his image in the lives of those that have been impacted by sexual brokenness and abortion. We believe God has called us to serve the women in our city facing unplanned pregnancies, the children they carry, students who are in desperate need of transformation in their relationships and sexuality, and men and women burdened by the pain of past abortion. We encourage our whole faith family to serve and to participate in the annual bottle fundraising drive.
