What We Are

[recent outline to help further and better define Voice for Life to the Christian Community]

Voice for Life is a charitable, non-profit volunteer organization that promotes respect and love for all human life from conception to natural death, through education. 
Voice for life, has a passion to give voice to the voiceless.  It serves the Simcoe and District area. We raise our voice for life, from the very young to the very old and those in between.

We work within the community raising awareness, on the gift of life, marriage between a man and a woman, children in a loving family environment as the gifts of the Creator. Promote through education, the protection of life from conception to natural death.  

With the Biblical mandate to protect human life and to heal hurts of our neighbours we not only reach out and call for protection of those who are endangered in the womb, but also for those with disabilities, and the frail elderly who may be vulnerable to euthanasia.  –Life is not disposable at any stage of life. 

As Scripture has taught us, all life is a creation of God, and we should be as Christians, visible witness in our environment for the culture of life.

We address life issues, encourage prayer, and reach out in public trying to educate people to do what is right, and to be active and open to life.  Asking our community to treat life with respect, and nourish and sustain it.

As a public witness, we welcome you to join us in evangelizing for Life and Truth in our public activities in Simcoe and pray that the Way Jesus taught us be followed and life be respected.

Our Walk-A-Thon for life is a visible witness for life.
As is Life Chain –an open, quiet hour of prayer at the cross roads of Highway 24 and Highway 3 in Simcoe for life, and turning to God for healing and forgiveness.  Pastors from the area are encouraged to submit prayers for life, for those participating to meditate on during the hour of prayer.  We also have Father’s Day Vigil, an hour of prayer at the hospital for babies who been aborted, and for mothers, fathers and families hurt by abortion.

During the Norfolk County Fair in Simcoe, we reach out to all who come by and visit our booth. With more volunteers, participation in other area fairs and festivals would be possible.

We also go out and sponsor credible public speakers. If there is an opportunity, we visit schools and groups, as invited on life issues.  We are very concerned about engineered death of the vulnerable, which is being promoted with increasing intensity in our culture now, as the demographic winter is arriving.  

Our Voice for Life office provides educational material for visitors who come in, and for schools. We also provide referrals for individuals seeking help.  We do what we can, with the resources that we get from donations that come from members belonging to different denominations, and with prayers of many.  

We need help to build credible volunteer speaker teams (retired doctors, nurses, social workers, etc.) to tour the community, with the message of life, and the fullness of life for: families, mothers, fathers, grandparents, youth and children.  If anyone wishes to participate and engage in such an effort, please contact us. Your walk with Jesus in reaching out to our neighbours would be much welcomed. 

Thank you.
