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: firstname.lastname@example.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
The congregations of each New England State can arrange for buses to pick up members and drive them to the Connecticut March for Life on March 22nd. Or, several congregations in an area can arrange to do so. The buses can make stops on the way to pick up members too.
Please visit rally.co to register online and set up the buses for your Congregation.
If you have any questions, or need any help with arranging a bus, please contact me at: email@example.com
Please prayerfully consider participating in this LIFE event. It's a great opportunity to serve with other Pro-life Christians from New England.

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."
