40 for Life

This year, Anglicans For Life is celebrating our 40th anniversary. In celebration, we are dedicating 2023 to showing the world what the church can do for life through a variety of activities, events, and resources specifically designed to engage both lay and ordained individuals and their churches. Below, you will find an outline of the scheduled 40 for Life activities.

June/July: Engaging Youth for Life


Throughout the months of June and July, Anglicans For Life, in partnership with Abundant Life, will engage youth for life through a variety of activities including our second annual Christmas Card Design Contest and the "Uprooting Lies and Planting the Truth" programming.

Over the course of two months, Anglicans For Life's Youth and Outreach Coordinator, Sammie Gallo, will focus on uprooting lies and planting truths in the hearts of young people through engaging videos, resources, and graphics.

Anglicans For Life believes it is important to engage people (both students and adults) in educational opportunities that equip them to speak the truth about the Sanctity of Life in a culture that uses misinformation to mislead people about abortion.

Sample Promotional Text

Anglicans For Life invites students, youth leaders, and parents to join us June 5 thru July 31 for an educational opportunity that equips students to speak the truth about the Sanctity of Life in a culture that uses misinformation to mislead people about life topics such as abortion, legislation, motherhood, and contraception. Learn more at YouWereMadeForMore.org/UprootingLies.

How to Participate

Every Monday, we will uproot a new lie via a video shared on YouTube, social media (Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter), and the official program webpage: YouWereMadeForMore.org/UprootingLies. During these short videos, Sammie Gallo, AFL's Youth and Ministry Outreach Coordinator, and Georgette Forney, AFL's President, will identify the lies and explain the truth backed by scientific facts, the Bible, and proven statistics.

Every Wednesday, we will share a graphic promoting the truth on social media, and on Fridays we hope to engage YOU and your students by sharing thought-provoking topics to discuss with one another, posting further reading articles and resources on our website and social media, or hosting a live stream where your students can ask Georgette and Sammie questions!
