Dear Pastor,


SVPS will host its annual Walk Run for Life on Saturday May 13thWould you please help us spread the word?


Through our partnership with local churches, the life-giving truth of Jesus Christ has impacted tens of thousands of people in the midst of their unplanned pregnancy and post-abortion experiences. This family-friendly, outdoor event raises a significant portion of our operating funds each year.


The Walk Run is an opportunity for your congregation to spend a fun morning together while joining hundreds of others across our communities to celebrate and champion the sacredness of human life.


What you can do:

·         Encourage members of your congregation to serve as Team Leaders who will rally others to sign up and raise funds. We are hosting a Team Leader Breakfast at The Junction Center on Saturday March 18th.

·         Show and share this promo video: www.youtube.com/watch?v=ytEOBW4aYv4

·         Invite a speaker to share about the ministry and the Walk Run for Life.

·         Request copies of the attached bulletin insert and display the attached poster. (Hard copies are on their way to you in the mail.)

·         Include this announcement in your bulletin or church newsletter:

"Celebrate and champion life by joining Susquehanna Valley Pregnancy Services for the Walk Run for Life on Saturday, May 13, at Calvary Church in Lancaster or South Hills Park in Lebanon. It's a great way to put your life-affirming beliefs into action and to love people locally! Team Leaders, walkers, 5K runners, sponsors, and volunteers are needed. Go to www.svps.org to register or for more information. Please contact << insert info for your church's contact person here>> for more information about the

Fwd: "Is Genesis History?"

IS GENESIS HISTORY? is an exciting film coming to theaters for a special encoreevent only on March 2. It features Dr. Del Tackett interviewing scientists and Biblical scholars about the events recorded in Genesis. Did God create everything in six days? Was there a real Adam and Eve? Was there a global flood? Was there really a tower of Babel? It's an great new film that everyone needs to go see. You can watch the trailer and buy tickets at www.isgenesishistory.com

Subject: "Is Genesis History?"

Brothers in Christ:
I just heard about this important biblical documentary today on Dr. James Dobson Family Talk. It is by Dr. Del Tackett, who also produced  "The Truth Project" DVD series.
"Is Genesis History?" Is actually a film being shown this Thursday evening, one night only, in selected theaters around the country. Haven't had a chance to look to see if it is being shown in our area. HIs approach is to look at scientific and archaeological evidence to show the book of Genesis, especially the first 11 chapters, are verifiable history to be trusted as written by God through Abraham.
I am surprised that nothing was said or announced in our church service the last couple of Sundays about this film, unless it has not been widely advertised, which would be surprising.
Anyway, I encourage those who can to get the word out about this important presentation, even at such short notice, especially for any families with youth. To help combat the lies and false information we/they are bombarded with at school, through the secular media, museums, etc.
Thanks for your time.
