LIFE SUNDAY 2023: “Blessed For Life”

“Blessed For Life” is Lutherans For Life’s theme for Sanctity of Human Life Sunday, which is set for January 22, 2023. Your congregation can observe Sanctity of Human Life Sunday on that date or at any time during the year.

Our Life Sunday 2023 theme is based on Psalm 41 (with an emphasis on verse 2).

  • Blessed with the gift of life.
  • Blessed by God for one’s entire life.
  • Blessed to be a blessing to others.

Use our Life Sunday resources to help unpack this theme and what it means for the For Life movement, both nationally and in your congregation and community. Our prayer is that these materials will provide valuable information and encouragement to you, your community, and the life-affirming work you are engaged in.

Life Sunday 2023: SPECIAL OFFERING NEWSLETTER/BULLETIN ARTICLE

This Life Sunday, Consider an Offering for LFL

On January 22, 2023, many Lutheran churches across the country will observe Sanctity of Life Sunday. As part of this, dozens of congregations will collect an offering for Lutherans For Life (LFL). If yours is one, we thank you and praise the Lord! This support is also vital since 95% of our funding comes from individuals and churches. We receive no subsidies, tuition, insurance, or government reimbursement, etc.

Of course, if January 22 is not a workable Sunday, churches are free to select any one they wish this winter or any time during the year. Also, if your congregation does not collect door offerings, gifts that are budgeted or directed by a mission committee, endowment board, LWML, etc., are most welcome.

Send gifts and offerings to:

Lutherans For Life
1101 5th Street
Nevada, IA 50201-1816

Questions regarding LFL or its programs can be directed to the national office at 888.364.LIFE (5433) or info@lutheransforlife.org.

Life Sunday 2023: WAYS TO SHARE THE FOR LIFE MESSAGE ALL YEAR LONG

  • Order our How You Can Speak Booklet. Many people say, “Yes, we are For Life. But what can we do?” This booklet offers over 200 practical ways for you and your local congregation to speak up For Life.
  • Include Life Quotes and Life Thoughts in the Church Year in your bulletin or newsletter and on your website.
  • Provide copies of LifeDate for members of your congregation. Contact LFL at 888.364.LIFE (5433) to order.
  • Place a white flower in/on chancel/altar when a person is baptized (representing the new life found in Christ).
  • During worship services, display crib quilts which can later be donated to a pregnancy center.
  • Have a “Celebrate Life” service on March 25 (The Annunciation of our Lord).
  • Make a “For Life” banner for use in church in conjunction with Life Sunday or another event.
  • On Life Sunday, celebrate the baptism of all children baptized since the previous year’s Life Sunday. Each family gets a letter of invitation prior to the Life Sunday “celebration.”

Life Week 2023

Life Week 2023 is coming soon! You are personally invited to join in celebrating that you are … “Blessed For Life!”

“Blessed For Life” is the theme gathering Lutherans from across the country from Sunday, January 15, through Saturday, January 21, for Life Week 2023.
