“What does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God? (Micah 6:8)
Founded in 1946, Church World Service is a cooperative ministry of 37 Christian communions working together to eradicate hunger and poverty and promote peace and justice among the world’s most vulnerable people.
Within the United States, CWS assists communities in responding to local hunger and disasters, resettles refugees, promotes fair national and international policies, provides educational resources, and offers opportunities to join a people-to-people network of local and global caring through participation in CROP Hunger Walks.
Join Friendship Church on October 20, 2013 at 1:00pm on a CROP Hunger Walk .
We will be starting from the parking lot at Friendship UMC for either a one (1) mile or 5K walk to raise funds to end hunger.
Twenty five (25%) percent of the funds raised from our Bolingbrook/Romeoville event will be shared with three (3) local food pantries (Romeoville Food Pantry, F.I.S.H., and P.O.W.E.R. Connection).
This past year, caring people in some 2,000 U. S. Communities joined together in 1,532 CROP Hunger Walks and other events to benefit Church World Service. They raised some $13.9 million to help end hunger at home and around the world. A quarter of the funds raised are shared with local hunger-fighting programs.
Our goal is to have more than 15 churches and organizations participate to raise more than $10,000. We hope we can count on you and your members to help us meet and/or exceed the goal.
If you have any questions about the event, please feel free to contact Kathleen Campbell, Dena Byrd, Bill Tarbell, Efron Ramos, John McWilliams, Tom Marsh, Amania Drane or Pastor Anna Shin. For further details, call the church office at 630-972-1011.
