A Word From Steve Jones
August 19th, 2019
On September 23, 2018, I would encourage you to make a special focus on slavery in your church.
Sunday, September 23, 2018 is “Freedom Sunday”, developed and promoted by the Fellowship’s justice partner, International Justice Mission (IJM).
What if slavery no longer existed in the world and the church was the reason?
IJM believes God has a plan to end slavery and it begins with God’s people. Join with other Canadian churches in a global movement to end slavery. Bring your influence, prayers, and resources to help rescue and free every child, woman, and man trapped in violence.
It is estimated that 40 million people are caught in slavery today. On Sunday, September 23, 2018, help your church family learn what slavery looks like in the 21st century. Help your church learn what it looks like to “seek justice and defend the oppressed” in our world.
Take a look at the poster below, visit the IJM website (click here) and watch a brief video (in English only). Join this worldwide movement as a freedom partner in the fight to end slavery!
Have a blessed week,
