Urging our nation's leaders to end hunger

Turn Your Faith into Action: Celebrate Bread for the World Sunday

Young_man_in_liberia_reads_bibleBy Vince Mezzera

Bread for the World Sunday is just around the corner, but there is still time to join the celebration!

On or around October 20, thousands of churches across the United States will lift up their good work fighting hunger throughout the year and pray for the ministry of Bread for the World.

For those already involved in efforts to combat hunger and poverty, activism through Bread for the World Sunday is a logical next step. Congregations can choose to host a speaker, petition the president, write letters to Congress, or find other activities to engage their members.

Your Bread for the World Sunday can be as simple or as elaborate as you choose. We have FREE resources, including bulletin inserts, offering envelopes, and a NEW resource kit, to help you plan your celebration.

Additional materials, including hunger facts, PowerPoint slides, children’s activities, and more, are available for download at www.bread.org/sunday.

Turn your faith into action by encouraging your church to observe Bread for the World Sunday this year.
