While cancelling church on Sunday might seem like a radical move, that is exactly what the leaders of several local churches will do on April 28.
Spurred by a national community service campaign, Calvary Presbyterian is leading participation in Faith in Action, a ministry that invites Christians to mobilize and “be the church,” by practicing their faith in a way that uniquely serves their immediate community.
Churches will assemble care packages for military troops, distribute bibles to Spanish-speaking neighbors, clean homes for the elderly and complete various other service projects. Those interested can sign up for a service project at www.calvarypreschurch.org
Sponsored by three leading Christian organizations – World Vision, Outreach and Zondervan – Faith in Action culminates in a community outreach Sunday where regular services are cancelled and the entire congregation engages in service projects in, and with, the community. The program also helps Christians invite members of their community to join in serving.
