Churches serve in place of services on 10-10-10

Churches across the nation are closing their doors on Sunday, Oct. 10. In place of normal services, they’ll head out to local service projects, some with the Fuller Center for Housing.

You can still take part!–> Click here to learn about the Fuller Center’s involvement with Faith in Action.

Faith in Action is a movement designed as a four-week campaign to encourage a focus on outreach through service, with sermon guides and devotionals for the entire month that lead up to a Sunday where normal services are canceled. In their place, members of the church head out into the community to help someone in need.

The Fuller Center for Housing is a partnering ministry with Faith in Action, so churches are invited to serve their Sunday on a Fuller Center project.  Click here to learn more about registering for the projects that will be taking place in Americus, Georgia.

Pastor Derek Vreeland led his congregation, Cornerstone Church, in being part of the movement for the first time last year. It was received so well by those involved that he plans to do it again this year.

"This is the greatest-illustrated sermon I have ever preached," Vreeland said last year as he painted the home of a Fuller Center repair project recipient.

This year the Americus-Sumter Fuller Center for Housing set a goal of assisting 10 congregations to get involved throughout the 10-10-10 weekend.
