Community Announcement
Would you be willing to pray for one hour to end abortion? 40 Days for Life is a pro-life effort that consists of 40 days of praying, fasting, and holding a peaceful vigil in front of an abortion facility. The fall campaign will take place from Sept 22 to Oct 31. This will be the 24th campaign in Grand Rapids, and it will take place in front of Heritage Clinic for Women at 320 East Fulton Street. This is the only free-standing surgical abortion facility still operating in West Michigan.  Perhaps this is something your small group could do together.  For more information, contact Kathie at 231-796-3931.
