I wanted to take a moment to send this e-mail to encourage you to take a few moments on this day to remember and pray for those who became victims of the terrorist attack on our Nation on September 11th, 2001.
While that day seems so long ago, in a way, it seems like it was only yesterday as most people know exactly where they were, and what they were doing when they first heard the word of the attacks in New York, Pennsylvania, and Washington, D.C.
Editor's Note: This letter has been prepared with the current crisis (as of 6/3/2020) in mind. We realize it hardly “covers all the bases”, but hopefully will be a letter you can use to reach out and encourage your church family during this difficult time. We are praying for the peace of God to prevail, and unity, within the Body of Christ so we can lead the way.

Sanctity of Human Life Sunday is on (DATE), and this year we will be receiving a special offering for our local crisis pregnancy center by the name of (NAME OF CENTER).
Most of you who are part of this community know the tremendous work they do as they serve young ladies who are pregnant. Some of the ways they bless our community is by providing much-needed counseling and encouragement. Also, the ladies receive supplies for their children, such as diapers, baby bottles, strollers, and car seats.
