40 days for Life

Is a unique pro-life effort that consists of 40 days of prayer, fasting and peaceful vigil in front of abortion clinics.  International campaigns, since 2007, have resulted in the closing of 56 clinics, including 3 in Michigan, as well as, almost 9,000 babies lives saved and mothers spared the tragedy of abortion.  The Fall Campaign will be held September 26—November 4, at hundreds of locations across the US and Canada, including Grand Rapids.

The day that is assigned to us is Friday, October 19, from 7am to 1pm.  Please consider volunteering to pray outside the Heritage Clinic by signing up for a hour or more this weekend in the narthex.  

To get more information, please contact: Dan Hoffman @ 534-8544.  All are welcome!
