    Sidewalk Ministry

    Every Saturday, students go to the local abortion clinic to be a peaceful and prayerful presence at the clinic. We go to the Sidewalk in front of the clinic not only for the children whose lives are at risk, but also for their mothers and fathers, who may feel like abortion is their only choice.
