Welcome, everyone, to our Sanctity of Life Sunday service. Today, we come together to reflect on the sacredness and value of every human life, from conception to natural death.
We recognize that every person is made in the image of God and has inherent worth and dignity. And we affirm the sanctity of life in all its stages and conditions, including the unborn, the elderly, the disabled, and the marginalized.
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.
Sanctity of Human Life Sunday is on (DATE) and this year.
Once again, we would like to extend an invitation to you and your family to join us for this very special day.
The preciousness of life throughout the Bible is apparent, and even in the days before science and technology allowed a view to the Mother's womb, there was evidence of people believing in the value of the unborn child.
Psalm 139:13 states, “For You formed my inmost being; You knit me together in my mother's womb.”
Sanctity of Life Sunday is on (DATE), and this year we will be dedicating time during the morning service for this essential day.
On January 13, 1984, President Ronald Reagan issued a proclamation designating January 22 as the first National Sanctity of Human Life Day. (January 22, 1973, was the day the U.S. Supreme Court legalized abortion-on-demand in all 50 states.) Churches around the United States use the day to celebrate God's gift of life, commemorate the many lives lost to abortion, and commit themselves to protect human life at every stage.
Churches continue to recognize the third Sunday of January each year as National Sanctity of Human Life Sunday.
