Sanctity of Life Sunday

Sanctity of Life Sunday

Dear Pastor,

January 20th is Sanctity of Life Sunday, and you may be looking for a fresh message outline or sermon idea as we reach the 35th anniversary of the Supreme Court's Roe. v Wade decision (Jan. 22, 1973) legalizing abortion and launching America's Holocaust - the murder of nearly 50 million unborn children.

The Church Ministries team at the Family Research Council exists to equip pastors as you challenge your people to be all that Jesus called us to be as the stinging salt and the shining light (Matt. 5:13-16). Speaking on behalf of those who cannot speak for themselves - the unborn - is part of our prophetic call, and we have several free sample messages on the critical moral issue of the Sanctity of Life posted on the Pastors Portal that you might find helpful:

In Him Was Life: In this message, FRC's Rev. Dale Lee reminds Christians that Jesus is the Source and Sustainer of life and, therefore, life must be valued and protected.

In Search of a Father: This insightful and intriguing message was preached last January at our monthly chapel service by Father James Massa, Ph.D, Executive Director, Secretariat for Ecumenical and Interreligious Affairs, United States Conference of Catholic Bishops.

A Day That Will Live In Infamy: In this message, I use Scripture to prove the humanity of life in the womb, refute the arguments of the pro-abortion crowd, and challenge hearers to Stand for Life.

Thank you for checking out these free sermon resources (for more see our new website:, click on the "Pastors Portal" tab, and click on sermon starters). Click here for some seasoned and practical advice on how to use these messages.

FRC's mission is to defend faith, family, and freedom, and we feel called by God to help Christian ministers become His Watchmen for America (Isa. 62:6). We want to stand with you in providing an arsenal of biblically-based resources, up-to-date news reports, prayer targets, action steps, and encouragement as you lead out in the struggle for the soul of our nation.

Let us know how we can serve you,

Dr. Kenyn M. Cureton
Vice President for Church Ministries
