Below is the 40 Days for Life general information to be passed on, but I’m offering a Challenge to the members of SOHL. We have well over 10 Churches in the Treasure Coast, but 10 Churches is all we need to have prayerful witnesses at the abortion clinic from 9-5 Mon-Fri during 40 Days.
And all you need is 4 people from your church!!!
Here is how it works:
Each church needs a captain (can be but doesn’t have to be Respect Life Head).
Each church choose a time slot of only 4 hours, from either 9:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m. or 1:00 p.m.-4:00 p.m., and choose a week day Mon-Fri.
4 hour time slot can be broken down to two, 2 hour slots, i.e. 9:00-11:00 or 11:00-1:00.
2 people work each of the 2 hour slots.
Captain coordinates with participants and 40 Days coordinators.
If 10 churches do this, we’re covered (10 churches x 4 hours = 40 hours).
Actually, we only need 9 because Wed. from 1-4 p.m. is already covered (so please don’t pick that time).
Let’s make this a friendly competition (we are all friends).
I will list which Churches are involved with the challenge, as well as which Church has the most people from each Church signed up to be involved without coming to the abortion clinic (see below and flier). I’m betting on Holy Family Catholic, but I guess I’m biased.
Days and time slots we be given out on a 1st come-1st serve basis as soon as I send out this e-mail.
Afterall, isn’t this why SOHL was created, to coordinate pro-life activities because as a group working together, we are stronger than individuals working alone.
SAMPLE BULLETIN ANNOUNCEMENT
For anyone who wants to hold a 40 Days sign up day at your church, I’ve included below a sample of what I put in our bulletin, and you can tailor make it for your church, your captain’s name, etc. If you want to get it in, you should act quickly, as many churches need a couple of weeks lead time.
