Meet at the intersection of Markland & Washington
Signs available at 2PM

2013-young-man-life-chainLife Chain is a powerful way to show your support for the unborn! On the first Sunday in October, local churches and individuals stand on a designated local sidewalk and pray for an hour while holding pro-life signs such as:

  • Abortion kills children
  • Jesus forgives and heals
  • Abortion hurts women
  • Adoption: the loving option

In 2014, 1877 Life Chains were held across the U.S.. Here in Kokomo, we form a cross by standing along Markland and Washington streets. Signs will be available from 2-2:30 at the intersection of Markland and Washington.

2015 Sanctity of Human Life Sunday

Sunday, January 18th • 2PM
Sycamore Reformed Presbyterian Church
300 E. Mulberry St., Kokomo

011815-sanctity-of-human-life-sundayFrom 6-month-old infants fascinated with the new world unfolding before them to 42-year-old software engineers developing cutting edge products, abortion on demand in the United States has claimed 56 million American lives. On this Sunday, come gather with others in our community to remember those who never saw their first birthday. Prayers will be offered by leaders from several churches and Pastor Shawn Anderson will bring a short devotion.

“Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute.” (Proverbs 31:8)
