MISSION & OUTREACH

Sanctity of Human Life Sunday
Assist Pregnancy Center/Metro Women's Care
Annandale, VA

Immanuel joins many churches today in observing Sanctity of Human Life Sunday. We remember the 60 million pre-born babies who have been legally aborted since the 1973 Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision. Nationally more than 1 million babies die from abortion each year; more than 1 in 5 pregnancies (excluding miscarriages) end in abortion.

Assist Pregnancy Center seeks to promote life through Christ to those vulnerable to abortion. The Center provides clients with accurate and complete information about prenatal development and abortion. All of its services are free. Assist also operates as a medical pregnancy center (Metro Women's Care). For those choosing life for their baby, Assist offers pregnancy testing, ultrasound confirmation, medically accurate information about abortion procedures and risks, and counseling about alternatives such as parenting and adoption. For those impacted by post-abortion stress, they provide one-on-one mentoring and group support.

The annual March for Life will be held on Friday, January 24, with a rally at noon at 12th Street on the National Mall followed by a march up Constitution Avenue to the Capitol and the Supreme Court.

Prayer Requests
1. For women and their families who are helped through Assist Pregnancy Center and Metro Women's Care.
2. For clients to choose life for their unborn children.
3. For Assist to increase the number of clients they serve in 2020.
