Coming Up

Day of Remembrance A solemn prayer vigil will be held Saturday, Sept. 9 at 10 a.m. at St. Mary Magdalene Cemetery, 5226 S. 46th St. in Omaha. For whatever reason abortion is chosen, loss is experienced and finding air to breathe again after such an experience can be a painful process. Our hope is that those who have made the choice to abort can find healing and forgiveness – and solidarity – as we meet together in this solemn ceremony.

40 Days for Life international director to speak in area

OMAHA — August 18, 2017 The North American Campaign Director of 40 Days for Life will speak at four locations in the Omaha area during the 40 Days for Life prayer event this fall.

Partnering with Nebraskans United for Life, Steve Karlen will speak outside of Bellevue’s abortion mill at 1002 W. Mission Ave. at 11 a.m. on Thursday, Sept. 28. (Please do not park at the abortion center.) At 1 p.m., he will speak outside Omaha’s Planned Parenthood, 3105 N. 93rd St. (Please do not park at the abortion center. Parking is available at Hope Evangelical Free Church.)

Karlen will also partner with Lincoln Right to Life at 6:30 on Wednesday, Sept. 27 in the public right-of-way outside Lincoln’s Planned Parenthood at 5631 S. 48th St. And, on Friday, Sept. 29 at 10 a.m. he will join Gabriel’s Corner Pregnancy Care Center at 131 S. 16th St. in Council Bluffs.

“People in Omaha and Bellevue have made extraordinary sacrifices to expose the abortion industry and to protect pre-born children and their mothers from abortion,” Karlen said. “I’m honored to be able to join these folks in prayer. Their efforts illustrate why we’re seeing historic changes — more mothers choosing life, more abortion workers experiencing conversions and leaving the abortion industry, and more abortion centers closing their doors for good.”

During 40 Days for Life campaigns in the last 10 years, over 13,000 abortion-minded women have chosen life for their babies,  154 abortion employees have converted and left the industry, and 86 abortion centers have closed. For more information, visit 40daysforlife.com.

‘Silver Ring Thing’ event set for Scott Conference Center Nov. 5

Christian Youth Event
Advocates Sexual Integrity
The truth for a broken
generation

Omaha, Neb. August 10, 2017

Between 100,000 and 300,000 underage
girls are sold for sex in the U.S. every year. By the age of 14, 94 percent of children will have been exposed to pornography. Over 50 percent of teenagers have engaged in sexual intercourse by the time they’re 18-years-old. One third of teens who get pregnant seek an abortion.

There is a dire need for the truth in this broken culture. Silver Ring Thing (SRT) is an international
youth ministry that defies today’s culture of the meet-up, hook-up, break-up mindset that contributes to brokenness. The organization’s newest tour, EXPLICIT TRUTH: Leaving nothing merely implied, presents the truth about love, relationships, sexuality and identity.

“Our culture is dealing with an epidemic of sexual brokenness,” said SRT President Jason Burtt. “Our
children are victims of an ideology of misinformation and mistruth. It’s time to give real, honest answers to questions and challenge this generation to live with dignity and worth.”

The SRT team, a group of 20-somethings from across the U.S., encourages students to control their bodies and hold out for something better – sexual intimacy within the bonds of marriage. During a high-energy, action packed event, tour team members share their stories of success, failure, forgiveness and hope using skits, humor, drama, commercial parodies and personal testimonies. 

The concert-style event will be held at UNO’s Scott Conference Center on the final day of 40 Days for Life — Sunday, Nov. 5 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Tickets are $6 online/$8 at the door. An optional ring is available for $20. A one-hour parent’s session will begin at 6 p.m.

Needs are: prayer support; financial partnership; housing accommodations for 6 guys and for 6 girls, preferably each with their own beds; meals; 20+ volunteers the day of the event; and importantly—church connections for un-churched attendees to grow in their faith!

For more information or to register, visit silverringthing.com/events/omahane. Brought to you by Nebraskans United for Life. To learn more, call NUFL Executive Director Kristan Gray at 402-399-0299.
