Salem’s Life Chain Fall 2020
Preparations are underway for National Life Chain Sunday October 4, 2020. Life Chain is a peaceful, prayerful pro-life witness held on sidewalks throughout the U.S. and Canada. Last year, over 1500 cities and towns joined the annual event. Participants hold signs with intent to save at-risk preborn children and to end abortion cruelty. Among the signs are Abortion Kills Children, Abortion Hurts Women, Adoption the Loving Option, Jesus Forgives and Heals, Lord, Forgive Us and Our Nation, Life-The First Inalienable Right, and Pregnant? Need Help? 1-800-712-HELP.
According to the Oregon Health Authority 694 pre-born babies died in Marion/Polk county in 2018.
Church-oriented and pastor-focused, Life Chain encourages clergy of all Christian faiths to lead their congregations to their local sidewalk for a time of public witness, solemn reflection, and personal prayer. Non-Christians devoted to pro-life are also welcome.
Salem’s Life Chain will again be held on Lancaster Drive, October 4th (the day before the Supreme Court goes back into session) from 2:30-3:30pm. Signs will be available at People’s Church at 1:30pm. In addition to the Lancaster site several Salem churches are holding their own Life Chain near their church site.
Stayton will be holding their first Life Chain October 4, 2:30-3:30pm on First Street in Stayton. Signs will be available at Calvary Lutheran Church at First and Fern Ridge Rd.
