Life Ministry

Resources for Pastors and Congregations

Each LCMS Life Coordinator is the link between the Synod and the District congregations.

As your New England District (NED) Life Coordinator, my function is to provide information and resources for Pastors and Congregations in our district. (email: lifecoordinator@ned-lcms.org)

As Lutheran Christians, we are aware that God created all life, and the sanctity of that life. Living in this sinful world, there are many around us who don't share that awareness and it falls on us to be the voices supporting Life - from conception to natural death - in spite of the world's destructive behaviors and attitudes.

If you have questions, suggestions, success stories, or just wish to share any other type of Life story, I am happy to hear and help, if I am able.

My hope is that people from each state would take part in the Connecticut March for Life, on March 22, 2023, in Hartford Connecticut and if other New England states have such marches, that we all try to participate.

The Connecticut March for Life - being held on March 22, 2023 in Hartford, CT - will be the biggest pro-life advocacy event in our state's history! We are focusing on making a statement in support of life that will be heard loud and clear by our legislators. Our message of love for unborn children and their mothers will be heard by every member of the legislature as they come to Hartford that day during the legislative session.

  • 12:00 pm - Rally at Capitol
  • 1:00 pm - March for Life around Bushnell Park
National March for Life
  • Date: January 20, 2023
  • Time: 12:00PM
  • Location: National Mall, Washington DC

On January 20, pro-life advocates from across the country and Council for Life representatives will gather in Washington, DC, to celebrate the gift of life and march against the greatest human rights abuse of our time - abortion. The March for Life is an inspiring, peaceful, vibrant, and joy-filled rally of women, men, young people and children. Every year, tens of thousands of pro-lifers have converged on the National Mall and marched on Capitol Hill on the anniversary of the Supreme Court's 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling which legalized abortion in all 50 states.

Will your congregation be represented in DC?

Fetal Development Models and Tearpad

The two sides of the Fetal Development sheet (shown below) are perfect resources for teaching your children, grandchildren, and the Sunday school kids about how God creates their bodies while they're "in their Mommys' tummies." When children learn God's truths at young ages, they will not fall victim to those who claim that the unborn are "clumps of cells" or "not human."

Bible Marriage Family

The Bible's Teaching on Marriage and Family is an excellent resource for congregations and each family could be helped by reading and sharing this short booklet.
