A call was sounded and an amazing loving response overwhelmed major thoroughfare in Jacksonville, which is only one among the hundreds of cities nationwide who participated in the 21st Annual Life Chain held on October 5, 2008. Our heartfelt gratitude goes to all who showed their support and visibly made a difference in advancing the Gospel of Life. Thank you CFC, SFC, HOLD, CFC-Youth and KFC for taking the courage to stand up for our Faith and for truly witnessing God’s love to those who absolutely needed to see hope especially during that critical hour. Through the grace of God, everyone who took part enjoyed a wonderful cloudy weather and a numerous thumbs up from tons of onlookers.

It’s disturbing to be living in this world where people don’t respect the gift of life more so the Giver Himself. Our prayerful and loving witness is needed now more than ever. We ask you to continue to join us in the 40 days for Life campaign. There is a round-the-clock prayer vigil outside All Women’s Health Center on University Blvd to send a powerful message to the community about the tragic reality of abortion. This 40-day constant vigil started on September 24 and will end on November 2. After SFC’s initial 3-hour involvement last September 27, more members are committing to be more visible testimonies of love. SFC’s next schedule is on October 11 from 6-7pm. May we ask our brothers and sisters from CFC, HOLD, CFC-Youth to do the same? At least 2 people during an hour are all it takes. Sign up as family or a household anytime between now and November 2.

To learn more, sign up for specific vigil hours, or let us know you feel called to serve God in this effort, please contact:

    PRAISE THE LORD!! You are all beautiful instruments in spreading the message of TRUTH and defenders for those unborn children! I SOOOO WISH I was there with my JAX family rallying with you all. My prayers are with you all there, as we continue to rally for LIFE! pray for us here in CANADA! It’s so much more stricter and not as easy to pray in front of an abortion clinic here (Canada) like I did with you guys there. LOVE YOU ALL!!
