As we mourn the lives destroyed by Roe, YOU are invited to join together in solidarity on January 22, 2013, for a national day of prayer and fasting to end the violence of abortion.

Reflections on Sanctity of Human Life Week

“Sanctity of Human Life Week is like Good Friday—a sobering time to stare unflinchingly past the ho-hum of abortion as a common practice; to grieve, lament, and morn; then to take up our cross and humbly obey God’s call to “prosper” the cause of the fatherless and “defend the rights of the needy” (Jeremiah 5:28). In this context, that means becoming cross-bearers for child-bearers.”

The New York Times Highlights Pregnancy Centers

The New York Times
In the leading section of the January 5, 2013, issue of The New York Times, a feature article highlights the benefits of pregnancy centers, including a quote from a source who calls them “the darlings of the pro-life movement.”

In addition to sharing the story of a woman in Texas who chose life for her son after seeing him for the first time on a pregnancy clinic’s ultrasound, the author provides this positive description of pregnancy centers:

“With largely volunteer staffs and donations from mostly Christian sources, centers usually offer free tests and ultrasounds, services that clinics like Planned Parenthood charge for. They offer advice about baby-rearing or adoption, ask if women are being pressured to abort, and give technical descriptions of abortion and fetal development. Many offer prayer and Bible study.”

40 Years After Roe v. Wade

Sanctity of Human Life Handout:
January is Sanctity of Human Life Month - a fitting time to honor our Creator and proclaim His handiwork.

This year marks 40 years since Roe v. Wade changed the legal landscape of American abortion law. As we consider the intricacy and workmanship of God's creation, CPC is honored to join with thousands of churches across the nation to focus on the value and sanctity of all human life.

How can you join in this celebration of LIFE?

Ninety local churches have requested 19,800 life-affirming handouts for bulletins and welcome centers, but we still have thousands more to distribute!

It may sound simple, but these small handouts (see sample handout here) are packed with Biblical truth that can have a huge impact for LIFE ... including in your church.

MAKE SURE YOUR CHURCH IS INVOLVED - connect with Katelyn today!

Thank you in advance for sharing the importance of LIFE with your congregation.

Dear Friends,

Shortly before Christmas, I sent out a letter sharing CPC's burden of a $150,000 deficit in meeting 2012 ministry expenses. As of today, I praise God as I announce that $81,597 has been given to help with this challenge!! WOW!!!

We started this month being weighed down by the shortfall. However, God has brought relief from so many people. We were also greatly encouraged by the many notes that were sent and all of the people praying.  

A quick run of the math and you know that there is still a need. However, this surge of support will allow us to start the New Year without reducing ministry services and outreach. Also, we are continually working hard to gain more ministry partners to meet ministry expenses. This month we will be announcing a new campaign to multiply ministry partners in order to reduce future deficits. 

It is humbling and faith-building to watch God moving through so many people. I've witnessed His movement often in my twelve years on staff and this is certainly one of those highlights. 

Of course, this means even more to the lives of pre-born children and their mothers. Many little ones will have the opportunity to be born and their mothers will experience Christ's love because of your faithful support of CPC. 

Thank you! Thank you!! Thank you!!!
