How can the church respond to a broken world?


The world seems more broken now than ever. Global pandemics, violence in the streets, and extreme hunger dominate the headlines. As churches, we know we have been called to proclaim God’s love and to bring his restoration to the world. But where to start when the challenges seem so big?


Tearfund Sunday - Jubilee 3

Your church can have a massive impact in restoring lives in the name of Jesus.


Your church might not have a big budget, you might not even be able to gather, but through Tearfund Sunday your church can proclaim Christ’s Kingdom in a powerful way. It is a Sunday morning service dedicated to helping those living in extreme poverty and transforming lives in the hardest places on Earth.

This year, your congregation will learn about the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and will hear from Birungi about how God transformed her life and how she has been released from economic, social, and spiritual poverty.

They will then have the opportunity to partner with local churches in the DRC to expand God’s Kingdom and restore the lives of the poor in the name of Jesus.

Tearfund Sunday is:

Biblical
Every Tearfund Sunday and sermon is rooted in scripture and Biblical truth.

Impactful
Tearfund Sunday helps families out of extreme poverty and creates eternal impact.

Easy
Tearfund Sunday comes will all the materials you need to run a Sunday service.



This Year’s Sermon: Jubilee


The sermon this year for Tearfund Sunday is on Jubilee. The year of Jubilee was radical and counter-cultural; a call to obedience and to trust in God’s goodness. It sought to bring about God’s justice on earth and demonstrate to God’s people a foretaste of salvation.

Although the act of a Jubilee year has faded, the intentions have not. Your congregants will learn how Biblical jubilee applies to our lives as Christians today as we seek to shine God’s light and bring justice, redemption, and restoration to the world around during this unprecedented time. This might be a good time to rediscover Jubilee!


 

Birungi’s Story: Released to Dream

Birungi now holds her head high, but this wasn’t always the case. As the oldest in her family, after her parents died suddenly she had to take care of her younger brother. But thanks to the local church, she was not only provided the ability to survive but to thrive.

But 87% of people in the Democratic Republic of Congo still live in poverty.

Your church can help change that.
