  • LIFE CHAIN SUNDAY is OCT. 7. 2:00 -3:00PM – West side of Court House
    What Is Life Chain? It’s a “prayer chain” and public (sidewalk) witness against abortion.

    Let Us Pray:

    • For our personal repentance and for spiritual awakening
    • For the unborn’s protection and for legalized abortion to end in U.S.
    • For God to convict and save abortionists and all who defend them
    • For all who witness our Life Chain, that their hearts will be touched
    • For our Christian leaders to extol Godliness, whatever the cost
    • For our public officials, that they will uphold justice and righteousness
