“Footprints for Life”

Educating Children to Change the Culture

“Proud to be Prolife”
Prayer Card Contest

Prayer is vital to changing hearts and lives.  A simple prayer can call on God to save a life.  Jesus said, “Amen, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will not enter the kingdom of heaven.” Matt. 18:3
By encouraging our children to write a prayer for life or design meaningful respect life art, we are cultivating them to grow a culture of life and helping them to know that they do have a voice.
