Saturday, September 25th
We will gather in celebration of the recent Texas Heartbeat Act, which will save countless lives, and kick off the fall 40 Days for Life.
Free and open to all.
Join us for Faith, Pro-Life Witness, Some Exercise and Joyful Noise as we peacefully circle the Planned Parenthood building 7 times. A Jericho March mimics the biblical battle of Jericho. We will have pastors lead us in prayer and then participants will march (walk) around the building while praying silently. Those who prefer to sit (portable chairs are welcome) or stand are welcome to do so. There will also be music and singing (lyrics provided), including the Joshua Fought the Battle of Jericho song.

Sunday, October 3rd
Please join us in a peaceful, prayerful, public witness for the Right to Life for All. Join others to help foster a stronger Culture of Life in our communities, our state, our country, and our world.
We will be standing with pro life signs along the south side of Hessel Park in Champaign, on the public sidewalk along West Kirby Avenue. This is a silent, prayerful witness for voiceless children who are threatened by abortion and who need us to stand up for them.
Pro-life signs will be provided and can be picked up at the southwest corner of Hessel Park at the intersection of West Kirby Avenue and Grandview Drive. Attendees are also welcome to make and bring their own signs (peaceful and encouraging messages please, no graphic images).
Please note that Grandview Drive runs all the way around Hessel Park, so look for our table at the southwest end of the park. Attendees are encouraged to spread out in both east and west directions along West Kirby Avenue. Thank you for standing with us!
We will be there rain or shine, so please dress accordingly for the weather. Lawn chairs, umbrellas (if needed) and strollers are welcome. Open to all.
This is part of an annual event that takes place all across North America. Feel free to check the web site lifechain.org for other locations as well and encourage others you know to spend an hour praying and standing up for LIFE.
Questions? Contact email@example.com or call 217-607-0811.
Address: Hessel Park, Champaign; southwest corner of the park at West Kirby Avenue and Grandview Drive Champaign, IL 61820
