'Let’s Move' 1,000 Presbyterian congregations!

Let's Move! logoThe PC(USA) is excited to work with the Let’s Move Initiative because of our commitment to ending childhood poverty, hunger and obesity. We believe that “poverty in a world of abundance is an intolerable violation of God's good creation” and hunger and obesity are symptoms of such poverty.  It is our responsibility as individuals, as the church and as a nation to eliminate the root causes of hunger. Download a fact sheet and participate today!

A how-to guide is coming soon. Contact the Presbyterian Hunger Program for more information.

  • Hi Randi, Great suggestions. We would love it if everyone who signs up is able to work together and share stories. We're working out how to do that right now. We will invite everyone that signs up to join in the conversation sometime soon. If you sign up, you will definitely be included in the group discussion! by Kelly Wilkinson on 03/01/2011 at 11:42 a.m.

  • We'd sure love to know who else is participating, so we can keep in touch and share ideas. Will the information we submitted (above) be available to other participants directly? And how do we get linked with other, like-minded folks? by Rev. Randi L. Henderson on 02/28/2011 at 6:24 p.m.
