To all of our members who are pastors or active members of their congregations, think back on the past few years of Sundays and ask yourself, when is the last time you discussed hunger and poverty at church?
Bread for the World Sunday is a great opportunity for congregations to renew their commitment to ending hunger and poverty. This Sunday, October 16, 2011 (which also happens to be World Food Day), thousands of congregations across the country will lift up their voices on behalf of hungry people.
Through education, prayer, and worship, communities will recommit themselves to the fight against hunger and poverty in our country and around the world.
Take part in Bread for the World Sunday! Join us as we rejoice in our calling as Jesus’ disciples—equipped and emboldened to act, creating hope and opportunity for hungry people.
And if it's too late to plan for this Sunday, don't worry. Plenty of congregations hold a Bread for the World Sunday any other time of year, but most often sometime before Thanksgiving.
