This fall, from September 24 through November 2, our Birmingham Metro Community will join possibly hundreds of other cities around the nation for the largest grassroots, simultaneous pro-life campaigns in history - the National 40 Days for LIFE Campaign.
A KICK OFF RALLY will be held at Fullness Christian Fellowship (2572 Columbiana Road, Vestavia, 35216, 822-3070), at 7 pm, Tuesday, September 23. Please be there to share, to sing, to pray.
People are praying that this effort will mark the beginning of the end to abortion.
40 Days For Life is a focused pro-life campaign that has generated measurable lifesaving results in more than 130 cities where it has been implemented. Some locations have reported as much as a 28 percent drop in local abortion numbers. There are four components to the fall campaign:
Prayer and Fasting - inviting people of faith throughout Birmingham to join together for 40 days of fervent prayer and fasting for an end to abortion
Peaceful Vigil - standing for life through a 40-day peaceful public witness outside local abortion businesses
Community Outreach - taking a positive, upbeat pro-life message to every corner of our city through media efforts, church presentations, petition drives and public visibility
Celebration Banquet - helping support a local crisis pregnancy center by attending a fund raising banquet on November 13.
