Candlelight Prayer Vigil Ad Graphic
In remembrance of those lost to abortion, we meet on the on the Roe v. Wade anniversary. We hear a short message, maybe a song, maybe a poem, see the baby shoes display, & pray together. Many come for this who’ve chosen abortion & regret it. Some come to honor those lost to them. Many come to stand for life. Please join us to remember them.
More information about SOHL Sunday
In 1983, President Ronald Reagan issued a proclamation establishing a National Sanctity of Human Life Sunday (SOHLS), a day set apart to focus on the intrinsic value of human life and the fundamental right to life, as recognized by the American Founding Fathers. Since then, SOHLS is held on the Sunday in January that falls closest to the day on which the Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton decisions were handed down by the U.S. Supreme Court on January 22, 1973.
During the times we live in, it is especially important to be a voice for the unborn by proclaiming God’s truth and the love of Jesus Christ to women facing unplanned pregnancies and their families. We invite you to join with us in a special day to promote the immeasurable value and importance of every life.
You can observe SOHLS on any Sunday in January. Typically, churches choose the Sunday before or after the January 22 anniversary of Roe v. Wade. Inspire a culture of life in your congregation by using whatever SOHLS materials that work best for your church.
Materials are available from many sources, but Grace House offers our quality items ~ with info about our own community (to you at no cost) as a part of our ministry to our community. Our printed materials & videos bring awareness to the reality of abortion still present in our communities and highlight the life-saving work being done at our local pregnancy centers. See above for our free materials.
Pastors, teachers, please use our Online Resources page to find sermon helps, statistics, etc.
Should churches observe Sanctity of Life Sunday? It’s an important question.

Mortgage Payoff Campaign
We purchased 307 N Orange Street, New Smyrna Beach in January 2019.
We need your help to get it paid off by January 2024! Give online or send us a check & note “building fund”. Maybe you can help us pay off our mortgage?
A member of our Ministry Family gave a $75,000 donation believing that others would MATCH their donation. They earmarked their donation to the NSB mortgage pay off but they would like those who give towards matching their gift to choose how each donation is used. As of 6/22/2021 we’ve received $39,347 towards matching this donor’s special gift & we now owe $307,760 on our NSB mortgage.
