Get involved with our exciting events in Kalamazoo and Battle Creek!
We consider it an honor to be able to work with you as we promote the love of Christ in Southwest Michigan. Sanctity of Human Life day is observed on or before January 22nd — the anniversary date in 1973 when the Supreme Court legalized abortions in the United States.
Sanctity of Human Life Day is dedicated to provide information to those in our community about the precious value of all human life.
Contact us to request resources for your church as you dedicate a Sunday to honor God's precious gift of life to every person.
The following resources are available for your church:
