1. Hold a service
Congregations can devote an entire service to raising the issues of extreme poverty using prayers, scripture readings, and the sermon to focus attention on the needs and issue a call to action. ONE offers service guides to help get your started!
2. Share mission testimony
Do you have a mission or international service program at your congregation? Consider having someone from this committee or ministry speak during or after your service to share their stories and get others involved. Share compelling stories as well with ONE by sending them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
3. Small groups
The small group setting is perfect for having a discussion about the issues and what people can do to get involved. Use an adult faith group or social concerns meeting to host an Advocacy in Action briefing, sharing more information about what U.S. foreign assistance does. Briefing information can be found through contacting Faith@ONE, or your local ONE leader.
4. Host a table
Set up a table in your church foyer to distribute information and invite people to sign up for ONE.
ONE has more resources here, including bulletin announcements, stories to share, and a full how-to sheet. Leave a comment below to tell us about how your church is responding.
