Compassion Sunday is an opportunity for you to share your heart for children in poverty with those who could change their lives forever — your church family. On this special day, you’ll be joining thousands of other churches in speaking up for those in need.

Here’s How To Get Started

  1. Order A Planning Guide

    In your FREE guide, you'll learn all you need to know about hosting Compassion Sunday — from planning your presentation to connecting your church family with children in need.

  2. Register your event

    Once you work with your pastor to set a date, it’s time to register your event. After you register, we’ll send you an Event Kit with table decorations, a T-shirt, child packets, helpful instructions and more!

“I love sharing with people how sponsorship is changing lives. Your sponsorship story can be what God will use to encourage someone to sponsor a Compassion child, which will lead to an eternal life-changing relationship.”
