Remember the persecuted this summer (Part 3)

Share the message with your local church!

Many Christians in Canada are simply unaware of the reality of persecution in the world today. Subscribe to our monthly newsletter and share it with a friend, encouraging them to sign up for their own free subscription.

Consider using these summer months to plan and organize a prayer or letter writing group that can begin meeting regularly in the fall. Use VOM’s newsletter, prayer alert, and letter writing materials to guide you.

Invite a speaker from VOM to share about persecution at your church. For our current events schedule or to request a speaker, contact our office or visit our online events calendar.

Or you can share a story from The Persecution & Prayer Alert in your church bulletin, or show a video clip from VOM during the church service. You can watch or download a wide selection of engaging videos from our multimedia site.

Put your creative skills to work! Follow our easy-to-use template to create parachutes used to drop Christian materials into guerrilla-controlled areas of Colombia. Work together as a church community to buy the fabric, assemble the materials, sew the parachutes, and cover the deployment cost of $5 per parachute. Click here for the parachute template.

We are also looking for hand-made cards that can be used at VOM conferences for attendees to write encouraging notes to prisoners of faith. Get your kids, Sunday school class, or VBS involved and organize a card-making event with your church members. We will also gladly accept hand-made bookmarks.

We would love to hear how you have shared the message of the persecuted Church with your own church community. Please contact our office or use the comment section below to share your ideas and feedback.
