Don’t Just Go to Church. Be the Church.

During these hard economic times, many people are in need of help. As a church or small group, you can help your community by serving them in Christ's name. Faith in Action is a campaign that will help your group become outwardly focused and aware of the needs around you. You can make a difference in your community!

Start with a Small Group Kit and let the enthusiasm grow into a church-wide campaign. The energy generated from a Faith in Action service day is contagious, and it will change your group or congregation from the inside out.

When many people gather to serve, it makes a powerful impact in the community; but when many churches or groups gather to serve together, it can change a community. We encourage groups and churches to organize their Faith in Action Sunday to take place on October 11, 2009. You can make a difference by “being the Church” in your community—by serving them.
