Our Third Annual NALC Life Conference will be held on Thursday, January 17th, 2019 at Trinity Lutheran Church, 276 Cleveland St. Warrenton, VA 20186 from noon until 5PM. The event is free and will begin with a free lunch and will conclude with a communion service with Bishop Bradosky presiding.

This year’s conference will be very special. Our keynote speaker will be Melissa Ohden, the survivor of a failed saline infusion abortion. Believing she was less than five months pregnant with Melissa in 1977, her birthmother attempted to abort her. Miraculously, the abortion did not succeed in ending Melissa’s life. Although the doctors initially believed that she would not live past her infancy, and if she did, she would suffer from multiple disabilities throughout her lifetime, she was adopted into a loving home as an infant and she’s not only survived, but thrived. As Melissa will be sharing with us, her life – her story, is so much more than one of survival. Melissa’s testimony speaks to the beauty of God’s grace in our lives, about the power of love, about hope and healing in the midst of grief and loss, and about the transformational power of forgiveness and in answering God’s call for your life. Melissa’s perspective as an abortion survivor who has had contact with numerous members of her biological family, as a mother, herself, highlights the intergenerational impact of abortion on families and communities.Fulfilling the purpose that she believes God set out for her when He saved her from the certain death of the abortion attempt, Melissa is truly a voice for the voiceless.

There is no registration required. But please email Pastor Dennis at dennisdimauro@yahoo.com if you will be attending the lunch so we can get a head count.

For those interested, the following day, Friday the 18th, we will be attending the National Prayer service National Prayer Service and then participating in the March for Life http://marchforlife.org/mfl-2019/

I hope that our NALC pastors and members can join our executive council for this very special event!
