What is Faith in Action?
The Church Has Left the Building...
Faith in Action is a four-week, church-wide campaign that creates an outward focus and a heart to serve in your congregation. FIA culminates in a Sunday where regular services are cancelled, and the entire congregation engages in service projects in and with the community.
Faith in Action is...
- 29 daily devotionals
- 4 weeks of small groups
- 4 sermons/services
- 1 cancelled worship service, replaced by a day of community service—all wrapped up with an evening celebration.
After three weeks of Faith in Action activities to inspire, empower and mobilize your members, do something courageous. Close the doors of your church and open your heart to your community through a day of service projects involving your entire congregation.
