Together we seek to honor the Lord’s gift of life at all stages, from the preborn to the vulnerable elderly.
Human life is precious to the Lord. Every human being bears the spiritual image and likeness of the Creator of the universe. This distinction sets man above every creature. As Christians, we are called to defend the sanctity of human life.

Bethlehem for Life is the ongoing presence and prayer throughout the year of Bethlehem attendees in front of Whole Woman’s Health, the second largest abortion clinic in the state of Minnesota, located just four blocks from the doors of our Downtown Campus. Currently, one or more individuals from Bethlehem are out three days a week at the clinic (Tuesday, Friday or Saturday). New participants should contact Wayne King (612-716-1751) prior to going out to ensure they will have someone with whom to partner on date(s) chosen.
Twice a year (usually in April and October), Bethlehem has a concentrated weeklong vigil of prayer and presence outside this clinic, known as the Peaceful Presence. Individuals in our church are encouraged to find two hours in their schedules to participate in this spiritual battle to end abortion in our neighborhood. All individuals—ranging from those who have significant experience outside an abortion clinic to those who have never participated before—are encouraged to be involved.
