Twenty-one people took part in this year’s Life Chain event on Sunday, Oct. 27, in downtown Mineral Wells.
Participants came from Mineral Wells Church of God, Immanuel Baptist Church, Rock Creek Baptist Church and Oran Baptist Church.
Life Chain is a peaceful prayerful stand against abortion held across the United States and Canada the first Sunday in October each year. The Mineral Wells Life Chain was held the alternate date, which is the last Sunday in October.
"It was an awesome experience for those attending," said one of the organizers, Sharon Walls. "The weather was perfect and it is such a privilege and blessing to be able to unite in prayer to lift up those who are unable to save themselves. Hopefully more will be a part of next year’s Life Chain which will be held the first Sunday in October in Downtown Mineral Wells."
Jana Wise and Walls are co-coordinators of Mineral Wells Life Chain.
