Walk for Life
This year on Saturday, June 11th, the Family Life Center will host the 2nd Annual Walk for Life! The Walk for Life is a simple way for people of all ages to get involved by actively demonstrating support for the value of human life – and a desire to make a difference in the lives of women, men, and families in our community. By raising funds and walking yourself or sponsoring another walker for the Walk for Life, you are directly helping the ministry of the Family Life Center advance its mission to cultivate a community that values life through the love of Christ.
When you put your feet to your convictions and Walk for Life you are directly helping the ministry of the Family Life Center advance its mission to cultivate a community that values life through the love of Christ.
