October is Respect Life month

Again this year, in an effort to reduce costs, we will not be providing you with the traditional packet, but have provided you with the links below for the materials contained in the packets, including the brochures and Resource Guide which contains Preaching for Life ideas and Intercessions. If you choose to purchase a packet or parts of the packet, click here.

I have highlighted direct links to many items below. Some resources will continue to be added, so you may want to look at the main page for other resources that will be helpful to you.
