What is Compassion Sunday?

On Compassion Sunday, people all over the U.S. are equipped and empowered to speak up in their churches for children living in poverty.

During a Compassion Sunday event, a host will generally:

  • Give an announcement or short testimony about their Compassion sponsorship experience.
  • Share a short video highlighting the hope a sponsor can bring to a child’s life.
  • Invite members of the congregation to sponsor a child.
