Sally and Benjamin Thompson are a husband-and-wife ministry team from Indianapolis, IN. After hearing them sing to one other at their wedding two years ago, their guests knew ministry was being birthed that they wanted to hear more of. Sally and Benjamin love singing together, but they also have a love for Jesus Christ and His people. They especially love serving youth and single adults. Sally is a pregnancy resource center counselor and Benjamin is a teacher at a charter school in Indianapolis. Sally and Benjamin Thompson have sung for many churches and a few school events around the state of Indiana, and they look forward to God leading them to a broader audience.

What would you do if the business across the street from your church was an abortion clinic?
That’s the question Jesse Dean faces in the brand-new film Voiceless.
“I wanted to create a film to challenge the church to get involved in the public square,” says Pat Necerato, the film’s screenwriter and director. He told LifeNews, “I cannot tell you how many times I’ve heard Christians, even pastors, say: We need to be saving souls, not so much worried about confronting evil. Those words never really jived well with my theology that Christ is King, He can redeem any aspect of our world, and He has called Christians to be saved and be a part of it. That’s the big picture.”
This guide shows the results of surveys sent to candidates in state and congressional legislative races.
Candidates were asked about the following topics:
Protecting current freedom for churches and ministries
Continued protection for churches and their ministries from taxation
Protecting girls in the public schools by keeping biological boys out of girls’ restrooms and girls’ locker rooms in the public schools
Protecting women and girls by keeping biological men (including rapists and child molesters) out of women’s restrooms and women’s locker rooms in department stores, restaurants, fitness facilities, public pools, etc.
Protecting religious freedom for individuals who believe marriage is only to be between one man and one woman
Protecting continued freedom for private and home schools
Continued school choice freedom to help parents choose the best school for their child

We will fight federal overreach at every level. I want Indiana to be the pinnacle of what America is about, and I’ll work hard to protect that.” — Curtis Hill

“Sanctification is not getting rid of our temptations, but pursuing holiness in the midst of them.” — Christopher Yuan
Sunday, October 23, 2016 | 5PM | 5236 E. 72nd St., Indianapolis
What would it look like if God’s people held out clear answers to the questions that stymie our society today—questions like, “What if my son is biologically male but psychologically female?” “What if God made me this way?” and “Shouldn’t I be able to love anyone I want?”
Enter Christopher Yuan. If meaning and purpose were the apex of the homosexual lifestyle, he would have found it. For years he gave himself over to the pursuit of the perfect man to complete his dream of homosexual fulfillment. Instead, he found only one man who loved him completely and who could reach into his AIDS-ravaged life and reclaim the years the locusts had eaten. His name? Jesus.
Join us as we hear Christopher’s video testimony and discuss how the mercy of Christ reaches into our world today, especially in the realm of identity, redeemed sexuality, Godly singleness, and purpose.
We’ll be meeting at the home of Cindy, who, along with Tyler and Hannah, coleads Afikomag, our local Summit community.
Come hungry! We’ll have dinner before things get rolling! Questions? Call or text Hannah at (765) 438-1228 or email email@example.com!
For a few examples of Christopher’s refreshing perspective on thorny issues of our day, check out the following:
On November 11th, Christian leaders from business and nonprofit worlds will gather in Carmel to share wisdom and encouragement at America’s Best Hope 2016.
Phil Vischer, the creator of VeggieTales, will headline this year’s event. “I think everybody who builds things or leads things has dreams of how it should turn out,” Phil shared in an interview with America’s Best Hope. “The reality is that very seldom does it turn out the way we dream about it and we imagine it. Christian values are often more longterm. Y’know, just being kind, showing the fruit of the Spirit, doesn’t necessarily move the needle in the next quarter, but it might move the needle in the next decade.
“For business leaders, it’s really a question of, ‘Why do I do this? Why do I get up in the morning? Why do I come into work? What’s my ultimate goal? Am I focusing on outcomes, or am I focusing on my relationship with God and what He’s called me to do on a daily basis?'”
Abby will share about her experiences as the director of a Planned Parenthood abortion center, the events that changed her life, and her conversion to a prolife activist. All are welcome to come at 6PM for an hors d’oeuvre reception in the parish hall. The program will begin at 7PM in the church.
Abby Johnson has always had a fierce determination to help women in need. It was this desire that both led Abby to a career with Planned Parenthood, our nation’s largest abortion provider, and caused her to flee the organization and become an outspoken advocate for the pro-life movement. During her eight years with Planned Parenthood, Abby quickly rose in the organization’s ranks and became a clinic director. She was increasingly disturbed by what she witnessed. Abortion was a product Planned Parenthood was selling, not an unfortunate necessity that they fought to decrease. Still, Abby loved the women that entered her clinic and her fellow workers. Despite a growing unrest within her, she stayed on and strove to serve women in crisis.
All of that changed on September 26, 2009 when Abby was asked to assist with an ultrasound-guided abortion.
She watched in horror as a 13 week baby fought, and ultimately lost, its life at the hand of the abortionist.
At that moment, the full realization of what abortion was and what she had dedicated her life to washed over Abby and a dramatic transformation took place. Desperate and confused, Abby sought help from a local pro-life group. She swore that she would begin to advocate for life in the womb and expose abortion for what it truly is.
Planned Parenthood did not take Abby’s exodus sitting down. They are fully aware that the workers who leave are their greatest threat. Instantly, they took action to silence Abby with a gag order and took her to court. The lawsuit was quickly seen as the sham it was and thrown out of court.
The media was, and continues to be, intensely interested in Abby’s story as well as her continued efforts to advocate for the unborn and help clinic workers escape the abortion industry. She is a frequently requested guest on Fox News and a variety of other shows and the author of the nationally best-selling book, Unplanned, which chronicles both her experiences within Planned Parenthood and her dramatic exit.
Today, Abby travels across the globe sharing her story, educating the public on pro-life issues, advocating for the unborn, and reaching out to abortion clinic staff who still work in the industry. She is the founder of And Then There Were None, a ministry designed to assist abortion clinic workers out of the industry. To date, this ministry has helped over 150 workers leave the abortion industry. Abby lives in Texas with her husband and five precious children.
Share God’s good news! Each year the pregnancy resource center Living Alternatives and the prolife outreach group Howard County Right to Life team up to serve at the Howard County 4H Fair. This is a fun way to have great conversations! Volunteers staff a table set up with prolife information, such as pictures of fetal development and information about the resources Living Alternatives provides to families.
Two-hour time slots are open every night of the fair from 5-9PM, Monday through Saturday, July 11-16. Want to get involved? Email firstname.lastname@example.org or call (765) 438-1228!
