Igniting a passion for Jesus in New England

Church in Action Week

“Then Jesus told His disciples, “If anyone would come after Me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow Me.” Matthew 16:24

Our 2017 Church in Action Week is going to be an incredible time filled with opportunities for you to learn more about the work of our Church in Action partners. Throughout the week, you’ll hear stories from our remarkable Church in Action family, serving in ministries here in the U.S. and around the world, who are heeding the words of Matthew 16:24 and following Jesus no matter the cost.

Be a part of these stories.

Our Church in Action family members are only able to do what they do because of the support raised through Church in Action Pledges each year. Please consider giving to the separate Church in Action Fund. You can give online here, marking “Church in Action 17-18” as the fund or make a Church in Action Pledge by filling out this form.

You can read about all of our Church in Action Partners here.
