Life is precious! You may have read that the Gerber Company has just announced the 2018 Gerber Baby. He is one year old Lucas Warren from Dalton, GA and he’s incredibly cute. He is the first Gerber baby to have Down Syndrome! What a wonderful message Gerber is sending to society—that Lucas’ life matters. Sadly, Iceland has recently claimed to have eliminated Down Syndrome through abortion! They have decided that the lives of babies with Down Syndrome are not worth living. It’s hard to believe this is actually happening in our world today.
March 19th-25th is Down Syndrome Awareness Week. Maybe you know someone who has Down Syndrome or who has a Down Syndrome child. If you do, you are truly blessed!

What is the purpose of Anglicans for Life?
FIRST, Our AFL chapter will PRAY. We will pray specifically for our community, our nation, our legislators, for families in crisis, for those working in abortion clinics, for the unborn and for those who are infirmed and cannot speak for themselves. We will pray that God will show us how to help others develop strong convictions about all life issues.
SECONDLY, Our AFL chapter wants to EDUCATE the people in our church about what is happening in our nation and around the world regarding life issues. *Please mark your calendar and plan to attend our “Project Life” spiritual growth classes which begin April 8th, from 10:10 to 10:50 am.
*Be sure to go to our national website- www.anglicansforlife.org for interesting information and important updates on life issues.
THIRDLY, we plan to promote volunteer opportunities within our community. Several of our chapter members are already volunteering at the Pregnancy Resource Center of Walton County and the Women’s Health and Wellness Clinic of Walton in areas such as parenting classes, counseling, office work, etc.
