Self-Development of People Sunday
Presbyterian Committee on the Self-Development of People (SDOP) celebrates SDOP Sunday in 2023 on March 12. Join us in celebrating how the Presbyterian Church (USA) partnerships with low-income communities nationally, locally and internationally have impacted these communities as we seek to eradicate systemic poverty.
The SDOP Sunday Resource and Yearbook shares stories of these partnerships, a sermon, reflection, how you can engage with SDOP and much more!
In lifting up these stories, we pray that they will inspire, encourage and energize you and your congregation to be unified in Christ, engaged in faith and dedicated in your support.
Please plan to observe Self-Development of People (SDOP) Sunday by doing a SDOP Minute for Mission, singing one of the SDOP hymns (in the SDOP Sunday resource), or mentioning the program during the service.

What is SDOP Sunday?
Self-Development of People Sunday is an opportunity for churches to give to the One Great Hour of Sharing, and celebrate the work that we do engaging communities in addressing the issues of poverty and oppression. Rev. Alonzo Johnson, Coordinator for Self-Development of People, shares his thoughts.
