Bread for the World

On Sunday, October 30th, our church will join thousands of other churches across the country in celebrating Bread for the World Sunday. In our worship, we lift up our prayers for those who struggle with hunger—and rededicate ourselves to efforts that help end hunger.

Our prayers and our actions are especially urgent at this time. Severe drought and civil strife have caused acute malnutrition in Ethiopia, South Sudan, Syria, and other parts of the world. Poverty and violence have pushed many in Latin

America to leave their homes and risk everything to escape. Through our involvement in Bread for the World, we are advocating for humanitarian

assistance and long-term solutions to hunger.

Putting our faith in God who listens to our cries for help (Luke 18:7), we renew our prayers for all those who suffer from need or injustice. We also pray that our newly elected leaders will govern with wisdom, encourage healing, and work for a future in which all have an opportunity to prosper.

Our faith is in Christ, who makes all things new, and we place our hope in God’s vision of a world without hunger.

 

Bread for the world is a collective Christian voice urging our nation’s decision makers to end world hunger at home.
