Ask your church leaders to host Stand for Marriage Sunday: Religious Freedom at Risk
April 15, 2015 - Wednesday

Marriage is on trial.

On April 28, the Supreme Court will hear oral arguments for and against redefining marriage in America.  Though marriage between a man and a woman has existed since the beginning and is the cornerstone of ordered society, the time-honored institution is in serious trouble.  Before federal judges began to overturn marriage laws, voters in 30 states had preserved natural marriage in their Constitutions.  Now the High Court is poised to decide for us all.

The consequences this decision could have on our religious freedom, the freedom to believe and live according to those beliefs, are staggering.  Should the Court redefine marriage, our religious liberty  -- the foundation for all of our freedoms -- is at risk.  That’s why we’re asking churches across America to hold a special “Stand for Marriage Sunday: Religious Liberty at Risk” on Sunday April 26, to take time in their worship services to pray for the Supreme Court and the attorneys presenting the arguments, that truth would prevail and that natural marriage would be honored by the arguments and by the decision of the justices.

To help congregations set the stage, we’ve partnered with Echolight Studios to create a short video that explains the importance of this decision, and the impact it will have on everyday Americans who seek to live out their faith.  We’re making it available to congregations for free, so you can help by asking your church leaders to show the short video, then pray for the Court that marriage and religious liberty will be protected. 

Please ask your church to consider joining us in praying for marriage and our freedom to follow God, and to live according to our faith.
