Mission Sundays and Festivals

The GMI encourages congregations to celebrate God's Mission around the world by holding a Mission Sunday or a Mission Month. These are ways to bring Global awareness, to inform and invite individuals to become partners in Global Mission. There are many ways churches could celebrate the day:

  • Global Mission Sunday - special international worship service.
  • Global Mission Sunday and Festival - worship and various activities for children and adults. This festival could be organized for the whole week-end (more educationally based), for all day Sunday, or part of the day.
  • Global Mission in Sunday School - educational emphasis.
  • Global Mission Forum speaker on a particular Sunday, or for several Sundays in a series.

The ELCA can provide many resources as well. You can find Tool kits for Sunday worship services and education packets on the ELCA Global Mission website.
