This ministry focuses on protecting the sanctity of life from conception through natural death. There are various ways to do this. A couple of examples would be:
Supporting Crossroads, a crisis pregnancy center for both women and men in need when faced with unexpectant pregnancies. A nice way to do this is to come out and participate in the 5K walk/run.
Participating in the March for Life, a prayerful protest against the Roe v Wade and the legalization of abortion. This is an annual event in which we take a bus to our nation’s capital and then attend the rally and join in the march to peacefully protest for the rights of the unborn.
