Sanctity of Life Sunday, Jan. 22

Join us this Sunday, January 22, as we celebrate the value of all human life during our worship service. Plus, you will be able to explore new pro-life resources in our church library in Fellowship Hall and learn about the important work of CareNet. You can also download a free 21-day prayer guide for life from the Charles Colson Center, and you can register for the “Evangelicals for Life” live simulcast from Washington DC on January 26-28. Below is a pro-life ad spot to get you thinking!

Congregational Meeting for Camp McCullough on Jan. 29

After the worship service on January 29, join us for a special congregational meeting in the Sanctuary to vote on a letter of intent that would allow us to partner with other ECO churches to manage and extend the ministry of FPC’s Camp McCullough. You can download the revised letter of intent (which incorporates changes suggested by the congregation) to read before the meeting.

New Pro-Life Resources for Sanctity of Life Sunday

Check out our NEW pro-life resources for Sanctity of Life Sunday in the Church Library in Fellowship Hall on January 22 before and after church. They include:
  • Abortion and the Early Church: Christian, Jewish and Pagan Attitudes in the Greco-Roman World. Learn how the Christian church from its earliest days stood against abortion and the destruction of innocent human life.
  • Why Pro-Life?: Caring for the Unborn and Their Mothers by Randy Alcorn. Check out this one-book resource about how we can help the unborn and their mothers and nourish a culture of life.
  • Won by Love by Norma McCorvey. Norma McCorvey is the “Jane Roe” of the Roe v. Wade decision that created a national “right” to abortion in America. But now Norma supports life. Learn what happened.
  • Unplanned: The Dramatic True Story of a Former Planned Parenthood Leader’s Eye-Opening Journey across the Life Line. Read the riveting story of Abby Johnson, a former Planned Parenthood clinic director who changed her views on abortion.
  • Hand of God: A Journey from Death to Life by the Abortion Doctor Who Changed His Mind. Bernard Nathanson personally supervised more than 60,000 abortions. Then he discovered God.
