January is Sanctity of Human Life Month

January is Sanctity of Human Life Month, a month of particular focus on the tens of millions of lives that have been lost since the Roe v. Wade decision, and the lack of support in our culture that leaves so many women and couples justifying abortion as their "solution" to an unplanned pregnancy.

Is your church connected with the pregnancy center in your area? There are lots of ways you get involved: have a guest speaker  from the center come to your church, promote a Baby Bottle Campaign to collect funds for your center, volunteer some time and more!
