Thank you

The Southern Illinois District Advocates for Life Team gives thanks to the Lord for the congregations, individuals and groups that prayed during the 40 Days for Life campaign last fall. SID Lutherans prayed at Planned Parenthood in Fairview Heights and the Hope Clinic for Women in Granite City. In addition, thank you to those who prayed from their churches and their homes.

A special thank you to:

▶ Good Shepherd, Collinsville

▶ Zion, Belleville

▶ Bethany, Fairview Heights

▶ Christ our Savior, Freeburg

▶ St. Paul, Hamel, youth group

▶ SID Advocates for Life Team

▶ Campus ministry of LCMS-U at SIUE

▶ STL Pro-Life Future

▶ Attendees of the SID Prayer Vigil, led by Rev. Dr. Kirk Clayton, pastor of Zion, Mascoutah

Please make plans to join your district brothers and sisters in Christ for the 40 Days for Life campaign this spring. The event begins on Ash Wednesday, Feb. 17, and runs through March 28.

Another opportunity to advocate for life is the March on the Arch in downtown St. Louis, to be held on Saturday March 6. Last year’s march was co-sponsored by the LCMS, and 22 SID churches were represented — a great turnout from our district congregations!
