40 DAYS FOR LIFE
St. Lucie County
This Wednesday, March 9, starts the upcoming spring session of 40 Days For Life. For more information, go to the local 40 Days website at www.40daysforlife.com/stluciecounty where you can sign up to pray, witness and fast in the quest to end abortion, while finding out details about our local 40 Days Program (March 9 – April 17).
In order for 40 Days to succeed, we not only need participants, but we need “captains” who can help with the following:
- Recruit participants at sign-up days at churches and organizations
- Supervise prayer site on weekly schedule
- Help with 40 Days Special Events
- Help with e-mails, phone calls and other administrative chores
Captains will receive specific help and training on how to help with these needs. All you need is the willingness to help. If able to help, please contact Jim Thoma at 772-240-6186.
DURING 40 DAYS FOR LIFE
Thursday, March 10
Protest March Against Children’s Services Council supporting Planned Parenthood Thursday March 10 in St. Lucie West
A protest against $500,000 of St. Lucie County taxpayers money going to Planned Parenthood.
We need 50 people next Thursday morning, March 10, at 7:30 a.m. – 8:30 a.m. (when the Children’s Service Council meeting starts) to bring signs and spread out in front of their office building, across from the south entrance to Mets stadium, on University Ave.
We hope to have people with signs on Peacock, University, and California, so that when the CSC members come to their meeting that morning, they will get the message.
