Resources for International Witness Sunday 2022

Celebrate International Witness this October with our nationwide community of faith

Join congregations across our nationwide community of faith as we celebrate International Witness Sunday on October 16, 2022.

This year we consider the question, “What is in your hands?” What has God given you and your congregation to use to bless your community and strengthen the global Body of Christ?
