Choices for Women executive director Sharyn Hobbs, left, and Jean Zubaty, coordinator of Prince of Peace Catholic Church's Birthline, are joining with several area churches and people across denominational lines for the upcoming 40 Days of Prayer - United Prayers for Life.

The organizations have teamed up with Prince of Peace Catholic Church, Calvary Baptist Church, Faith Alliance Church, First Baptist Church, Cornerstone Baptist Church, Milton Wesleyan Church and Madison Assembly of God for the prayer campaign, which will begin at Faith Alliance Church, 2406 Cherry Drive, in Madison, from noon to 1 p.m. Wednesday, Sept.26.

Birthline is a volunteer ministry that has been in operation since 1984 to serve pregnant women and families with newborns in Jefferson County and surrounding communities. Each call is handled confidentially and according to individual needs.

The birthline telephone number is (812) 265-4140.

The Christian based non-profit Choices for Women Resource Center, according to its website, "exists to demonstrate and share the life-changing message of Jesus Christ by providing help and support to those facing an unplanned pregnancy and compassionately empowering women to make positive lifestyle choices."
