On PWS&D Sunday, we celebrate the work our church is doing to serve vulnerable communities around the world through programs in development and emergency relief. Inspired by God’s promise of abundant life, we are building a more sustainable, compassionate and just world!
Make February 4 a day to reflect on those enduring poverty, hunger and injustice and inspire action here in Canada to make change happen around the world.
Here are some ideas to make a difference on PWS&D Sunday:
- Encourage your missions committee to have a PWS&D-themed service.
- Request a PWS&D speaker: Contact Anna Muir at 1-800-619-7301 ext. 293 to inquire about speaker availability.
- Make a donation: Encourage your congregation to have a special offering in support of PWS&D. Your gifts truly make a difference in the lives of others.

- Download the 2018 PWS&D Sunday sermon, including hymn and scripture suggestions. Find more worship resources.
