Freedom Sunday

In three weeks churches across the globe will cry out in agreement on Freedom Sunday. The event unites voices worldwide by celebrating those who God has already set free, and contending for those still in need of deliverance. Interested? Here’s the rundown:

WHAT

Simply, it’s a global event for prayer.

WHEN

The official Freedom Sunday is to be kicked off on September 24th, but churches can celebrate anytime.

WHO

You, your congregation, or however your community decides to come together. You don’t have to be a pastor to lead a Freedom Sunday initiative, volunteers are encouraged to jump in and facilitate!

HOW

You decide! Your church can recognize Freedom Sunday in your own style. The options are endless; you could host a prayer service, dedicate the entire sermon to the topic of Freedom, and even provide follow-up sessions for service opportunities or further education.

The Freedom Sunday initiative makes it easy for churches to participate because congregations are free to recognize the day in their own way. Engage Together has provided a host of resources, and we’ve included a cheat-sheet of what’s provided behind each link. Enjoy!
