(UMCom) Over the last few years, tens of thousands of troops have come home from war… bearing wounds both visible and invisible, facing unemployment, housing and other domestic issues.
Rethink Church invites you to raise awareness and support for veterans and military families as part of a national campaign called “America’s Sunday Supper,” which takes place throughout January and leads to the Martin Luther King Day of Service (Jan. 21, 2013). Raise awareness by screening a free movie and discussing the needs of troops transitioning back into society. Raise support by engaging your local community in a project serving those who’ve served. There are many ways to get involved in rebuilding the ruins left by war.
Sign up for free resources, including videos to guide your local church in understanding recent conflicts and needs, a guide to host a free movie screening and discussion, ideas for service projects, promotional graphics and more. Go tohttp://www.sundaysupperumc.org or email Rethinkchurch@umcom.org for details. Read more about America’s Sunday Supper in the November/December issue of Interpreter.
