Festival Of Sharing


Now in its 32nd year, Festival of Sharing is an interfaith expression of mission support and involvement that has helped improve the lives of countless individuals in Missouri and around the world. People from more than 30 denominations and church organizations help the Festival to generate approximately $1 million annually. The purposes of Festival of Sharing are:

-      to generate financial and material aid responses for hunger, poverty and crisis;

-      to meet and challenge injustice through advocacy and systemic change;

-      to promote awareness of hunger and justice issues, local and international outreach

         opportunities and stewardship responsibilities; and

-        to encourage and enable hands-on experience with mission projects.

 

Immanuel members assemble kits that will be shared with those in need in Missouri and throughout the world. Those sent throughout the world are done so through Church World Service (www.cwsglobal.org).   CWS works with partners to eradicate hunger and poverty and to promote peace and justice throughout the world.
