This Life Sunday, Consider an Offering for LFL

On January 19, 2020, many Lutheran churches across the country will observe Sanctity of Life Sunday. As part of this, dozens of congregations will collect an offering for Lutherans For Life (LFL). If yours is one, we thank you and praise the Lord! The number of churches and church auxiliaries participating continues to go up. In 2018, 8.5% of churches helped LFL. This support is also vital since 95% of our funding comes from individuals and churches. We have no subsidies, tuition, camping fees, insurance, or government reimbursement, etc.

Of course, if January 19 is not a workable Sunday, churches are free to select any one they wish this winter or any time during the year. Also, if your congregation does not collect door offerings, gifts that are budgeted or directed by a mission committee, endowment board, LWML, etc., are most welcome. Send gifts and offerings to:

Lutherans For Life
1101 5th Street
Nevada, IA 50201-1816

Questions regarding LFL or its programs can be directed to the national office at 888.364.LIFE (5433) or  


Life Sunday Video from the Skit Guys

Here is a video that could be used at your congregation for Life Sunday:

“All Life: Sanctity of Life Sunday – ‘We know that every person is created in God's image and is worthy of being loved and cared for. This video calls us to extend care and love to every person at every stage of life, because each of them is a precious child of God. Use this video as an introduction to your Sanctity of Life Sunday service.’”

LFL designed our Life Sunday materials to complement one another. We encourage using as many of these resources as possible.
