Abuse Awareness Sunday - September 27, 2015
Abuse Awareness Sunday is a time for abuse to come out of hiding and into the light. All CRC congregations are encouraged to observe this important day by distributing topical bulletin inserts, promoting available resources, leading prayers and liturgies, and educating church members on the prevalence and impacts of abuse. Abuse Awareness Sunday may be observed on September 27 or any other day of the year. This year’s featured topic is child sexual abuse. Learn more here.
