Above all else, and by God's grace, we help women find freedom in rejecting abortion and treasuring human life.
This year, at the Family Life Services Night for Life, we are excited to share how we've grown over the past year, as well as how we are preparing to make an even bigger impact moving forward!
Join us as we hear from Christina Bennett, a profound pro-life activist who will share her personal testament in the fight for life.

Her message will inspire you to protect the lives of all of God's children, especially those who are victims of injustice.
