Freedom Sunday – February 14 and 21, 2016


There are more slaves in our world today than at any other time in history. Real slaves – held by violence, unable to walk away, doing things they don’t want to do.

On Freedom Sunday, we address the tragedy of human trafficking, but we respond with worship, hope, joy and action. We unite with others celebrating on this day: Free Methodists, Nazarenes, Church of God friends and others. We pray, sing, give, and preach in the direction of freedom. Because worship is the catalyst of action, Freedom Sunday informs and forms in us a way to engage.

Freedom Sunday is more than a day. It’s more than a worship service. Freedom Sunday is a movement of hope. Modern slavery is a symptom of the underlying problem of broken relationships, communities, and systems. The world is broken, but God is the healer. In partnership with God, we are agents of hope and healing.

On Freedom Sunday, consider taking an offering to help in three areas:

  • ICCM Ethiopia is beginning to partner with a Free Methodist church in Addis Ababa that reaches out to 50 of the most destitute orphans, vulnerable children, and their families who are at-risk of child labor and sex work. ICCM sponsorship will support these children through access to education, food and health care, creating a ripple effect that benefits the children’s welfare, their families, and their communities. Freedom Sunday funds will also provide trafficking awareness education for all involved in the project.
  • St. John’s Home for Roma Girls in Bulgaria is led by Free Methodist missionaries Chance & Dee Dee Galloway, who seek to create a safe and secure family environment for Roma girls who are highly at-risk to exploitation and trafficking.
  • Mission Plants in Portland, Wichita, and Atlanta are led by Set Free Movement leaders, who are working towards creating holistic freedom, addressing racial reconciliation, relieving poverty, and intervening in human trafficking in these broken urban areas.

A portion of offerings will also go to the Set Free Movement general fund for oversight.
