Respect Life Committee

What We Do

Our committee works to promote the value of all human life, at every stage of its existence, from the moment of conception to natural death.

For the current focus of our committee, please see below for a list of planned events and activities.  We would love to expand our activities, but we need your help; therefore, please prayerfully consider joining our committee.  Many hands make light work!
