Celebrate Multicultural Church
Sunday - June 2nd
On Sunday June 2nd millions of Presbyterians of all ethnicities and cultures will gather together to celebrate Multicultural Church Sunday. Now is the time to prepare for this Multicultural Church Sunday celebration.
We have included on this website an example of worship bulletin for your use and also a communion service for those who are accustom to having communion during the first week of the month. We encourage you to explore the Biblical and theological foundation of diversity and multicultural ministry and discuss new ways of doing worship by utilizing diverse gifts in the congregation to reflect the racial, cultural, gender, theological and socio-economic makeup of the community in and around your church.
To help you celebrating this event, we suggest that you order Living the Vision: Becoming a Multicultural Church, both the booklet and the DVD. For English, please, order PDS 72-341-04-001; for Spanish, PDS 23-314-07-001; and for Korean, PDS 23-314-08-003. For the DVD in English with subtitles in both Spanish and Korean, order PDS 72-341-04-003 from the Presbyterian Distribution Agency, (PDA)
You may also consider exchanging choirs, or/and pulpit with another colleague or church of a different racial/cultural background. Set Sunday afternoon for a cultural celebration with international potluck and invite an international guest speaker to address your gathering.
