October 1st, 2017 - from 2PM to 3:30PM

Join us for the 30th annual Life Chain when we will stand from 2:00 to 3:30 p.m. and silently pray for an end to abortion.

LIFE CHAIN is a peaceful and prayerful public witness of pro-life individuals standing for 90 minutes praying for our nation and for an end to abortion. It is a visual statement of solidarity by participants of all faiths, especially the Christian community, that abortion kills children and that the Church supports the sanctity of human life from the moment of conception until natural death.  

In 2016, over 1600 cities and towns held Life Chains, and each Chain is posted at LifeChain.net 

There are 7 locations where you can join us in the Diocese of Metuchen

Excerpt From 
the National Life Chain Press Release:

On October 1 National Life Chain Sunday 2017 will conduct our 30th annual prayer witness on "village" sidewalks throughout America and Canada . Our witness, Lord willing, will again change hearts, save lives, and further unveil the grievous curse of legal child killing in our two nations. The duty of ending the killing rests foremost with the church Christ founded and that is now entrusted to us. Were our resolve and courage anchored, God would redeem our limitations and grant victory for His glory.

When, then, will we of the Western democracies, the staunch advocates of human rights, discern our submission to the spiritual powers that create and nourish holocausts? When will we realize that it does "take a village," an entire village, to sustain the carnage devouring our culture? Each village segment must contribute, either actively or passively, to the "grievous peace" that holocausts require. To succeed, holocausts must first subdue their chief opponent, the church; and the Western pulpit and pew began their incremental surrender years ago, as seen during U.S. slavery and Nazi aggression.

Will we permit today's holocaust to profane God's name interminably? Will law enforcement safeguard, evermore, the killers' clinic doors and then punish lifesavers who interfere nobly and non-violently? Can no injustice shame us? Can no moral cause gain our sacrificial commitment? If abortion law were extended to two-year-olds, like unto Herod's decree, would we resist or yield? Are preborns less deserving of life than two-year-olds? As to why we fail to shield our nation's at-risk little ones, the answer has yearned to convict us in the U.S. for a half-century (1967-2017). We do not shield the defenseless children because we do not love them - the same reason why the church did not shield America 's slaves.

Participation on National Life Chain Sunday 2017 will again rely heavily on pastoral leadership in each city and town. Please pastors, preach Life and implore your congregation to stand with those "led away to slaughter." Defy the dark powers that are binding the church. Shatter the "deadly peace" in your local "village." Lead your congregation to your sidewalks on October 1 and lift up a witness for God to use as He purposes. Might the recent eclipse and current fires, hurricanes, earthquakes, and war threats be alerting us?
