The End of a Beginning

December 21

This Christmas season marks the end of a beginning.  A little over a year ago, North Dakota Family Alliance became Family Policy Alliance of North Dakota. While our fundamental mission never changed – protecting pro-family and pro-life values in North Dakota – it marked an exciting beginning.  Our organization launched with the vision of ensuring our state is one where God is honored, religious freedom flourishes, families thrive, and life is cherished.

What lies ahead is the exciting prospect of working together in 2018 and beyond finding ways to further unleash our biblical citizenship here in North Dakota.

With your help, we accomplished much this past year.

  • You helped us defeat a bill that would have endangered the safety of our wives and daughters by allowing men into women’s locker rooms and bathrooms.
  • We preserved our state laws defining marriage as a union exclusively between a man and woman.
  • We helped preserve the right of private schools to offer public prayers at athletic events.
  • We created our Family Leadership Team of legislators and allied organizations, and worked on further establishing Family Policy Alliance of North Dakota as the champion for families in our state.

We give thanks to God for this successful beginning, working together to protect and preserve our values.  As we enter 2018, we look forward to more wins for our families, hand in hand with you, our ministry partners.

May God bless you and your family this Christmas season as we celebrate our Lord’s birth.  Remember, this year has been just the end of the beginning.  Now we set about even more earnestly to “…work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward. You are serving the Lord Christ.”
