Not just in October, but every 1st Sunday of the month.
The first Sunday of each month is Life Chain Sunday from 2 to 3 p.m. at the very busy intersection of Valley Mills Drive and Waco Drive. We hold “G-rated” signs to present the reality of abortion to our community. One sign reads, “Honk if you’re pro-life.” We hear a lot of honking and see many “thumbs up” from the thousands of cars passing by.
The first Sunday in October is International Life Chain Sunday with over 1,500 communities in the U.S. participating. Along with Bellevue/Redmond (WA), Waco is one of only two communities in the nation that holds a monthly Life Chain.
We have a core of a couple dozen pro-lifers who participate regularly in Life chain Sunday. A benefit of a monthly Life Chain is that new pro-lifers drop in each month. During the hot summer months, new friends driving by will often bring us cold drinks.
