Good Friday Observance at Warminster Planned Parenthood

Over 100 Christians braved near freezing temperatures as they gathered at Warminster Planned Parenthood. They came to prayerfully observe the death of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

There was a reading from the Gospel of John. Pastor George Xenophontos shared a message about Christ’s suffering and death on the cross. A scripture reading of each of the 14 stations of the cross was interspersed with the hymn, “Were You There”. The Good Friday observance ended with a prayer to end abortion.

Prayer to End Abortion

Lord God, I thank you today for the gift of my life,
And for the lives of all my brothers and sisters.
I know there is nothing that destroys more life than abortion,
Yet I rejoice that you have conquered death
by the Resurrection of Your Son.
I am ready to do my part in ending abortion.
Today I commit myself
Never to be silent,
Never to be passive,
Never to be forgetful of the unborn.
I commit myself to be active in the pro-life movement,
And never to stop defending life
Until all my brothers and sisters are protected,
And our nation once again becomes
A nation with liberty and justice
Not just for some, but for all,
Through Christ our Lord. Amen!

The Bucks County Pro-Life Coalition is thankful to all who who attended this Good Friday observance. The BCPLC asks for continued prayers to end abortion in our nation.

Bucks County Pro-Life Coalition Sponsors Prayer Rally for Life at Warminster PP on 48th Anniversary of Roe v Wade

The Bucks County Pro-Life Coalition sponsored their annual Rally for Life on Friday, January 22, 2021. This date is the 48th anniversary of the infamous US Supreme Court decision legalizing abortion.

The event began at the VFW Hall across the street from Warminster Planned Parenthood. Pro-Life supporters from churches in Bucks County and surrounding areas started streaming in the hall before noon.

Sandy Slater, President of Bucks County Pro-Life Coalition shared pertinent information about the abortion industry in general and Warminster PP in particular. Fr. Mike Davis, Pastor of Assumption BVM opened the program with prayer.

Anne Ruegner, Acting Director of A Baby’s Breath, shared a slide presentation about their mission to mothers in a crisis pregnancy. These include free help and resources including ultrasounds, counseling, gift cards, diapers, formula, housing for up to six moms and their babies. Refreshments were provided by the Pro-Life Coalition of Pennsylvania. The program ended and attendees took pro-life signs as they exited the VFW to Planned Parenthood in silent prayer.

As the VFW group walked to the abortion site, there was a large crowd of 100 pro-life warriors that were assembled. They were praying and singing hymns. The number of people from the VFW joined with those gathered in front of Warminster PP had swelled to over 200.

Pastor Chuck Wilson of the New Hope Community Church closed the gathering in prayer. Pastor Bill Devlin, Co-Pastor of Infinity Bible Church added last words of encouragement to continue on in the battle for the sanctity of life.

Below are some pictures from Friday’s event.  

Good Friday Prayer Service at Warminster Planned Parenthood Limited in Numbers by Gov. Wolf’s Executive Order

Good Friday Warminster PP 2020

Good Friday is one of the holiest days for on the Christian calendar. It’s the day that Jesus Christ gave His life to ransom us from sin and condemnation. When we repent of our sins and accept Him as Savior, we inherit the gift of eternal life.  “For God so loved the world that He have His one and only Son that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.” John 3:16

For over two decades, the Bucks County Pro-Life Coalition organized a Good Friday observance to reflect and pray upon the suffering, crucifixion and death of Jesus Christ at Warminster Planned Parenthood.  We gathered in front of Planned Parenthood in large numbers.  2020 is the first year that Gov. Wolf’s executive order limited our gathering to 10 participants. 

Below is a statement from Sandy Slater, President of the Bucks County Pro-Life Coalition. It concerns Gov. Wolf’s executive order restricting the number of Christians at events and worship services.

“Christians have always observed Good Friday as one of our high holy days. By no means should our religious liberty be infringed upon by government, social or secular interests.”

Each year, as we stand in solemn prayer and contemplation of Jesus’ crucifixion and death on the cross, we also remember the lives of unborn babies who were killed at the Warminster abortion site. We pray for their moms left with deep regret and suffer in silence and those involved in abortion. There’s no sin that His blood cannot cleanse and forgive. His Resurrection conquered death.  He transforms lives of those who believe in Him.

The following is a recap of Good Friday’s Prayer Service at Planned Parenthood, Warminster PA. 

It was cold and windy on Good Friday morning at Warminster Planned Parenthood.  The wind gusts were so strong, many struggled to stand upright.  A seminary student volunteered to hold the cross during our prayer service.

Twenty pro-life prayer warriors came to join in the solemn Good Friday prayer service.  Ten stood in front of Planned Parenthood and the remaining pilgrims took their places on the other side of Louis Drive.

Participants took turns in reading the stations of the cross.  Rev. George Xenophontos, Pastor of Emanuel Baptist Church read scriptures from the Gospel of John and shared a pro-life message about the passion of Jesus. 

The Good Friday service ended with a Prayer to End Abortion followed by the hymn “Were you there When They Crucified My Lord”
