For the last eleven years, Immanuel Lutheran in Alexandria, VA has hosted a Divine Service before the March for Life. We expect that will continue in 2014. However, this year the Divine Service is part of the larger LCMS Life Conference being held at the Hyatt Regency in Crystal City (Arlington, VA). You do not need to be registered for the conference to attend the Divine Service. The service begins at 9:00 a.m., with LCMS President Matthew Harrison preaching. After the service, we will take the Metro into the District for the March.

If you are planning on attending the March for Life but cannot attend the Divine Service, plan on meeting your fellow Lutherans at 7th and Independence at 12:00 noon. Look for the large blue Lutherans for Life banner, and three LCMS Life Ministries teardrop banners. If you get separated from the group, try to meet up with us at the Supreme Court for a group photo.
