Celebration Sunday

Celebration Sunday is on May 5, 2019—the day after the Global 6K for Water.

It’s a day to both CELEBRATE and INVITE: celebrate the lives changed through the 6K with your congregation and community, and an opportunity to invite all participants (even non-church members) to church the next day.

Why Child Sponsorship?

Clean water is the beginning of everything and by hosting the Global 6K your church has created the foundation for communities to grow and thrive. Ending the cycle of poverty also involves building trusting relationships, breaking harmful mindsets, and providing resources so people can change their own futures. Our caring sponsors enable us to partner with children and their communities to carry out projects that will have a lasting impact. Through child sponsorship:
