Worship in Pink Weekend featuring the 11th Annual Pink Sunday Worship Service

 

In Partnership with:

NCBWIM

 

For the eighth consecutive year the National Consortium of Black Women in Ministry (NCBWIM), Nashville Chapter  and  Komen Central Tennessee have joined together to present Pink Sunday/Worship in Pink Weekend in Middle Tennessee. Primary activities will occur within congregations during the Worship in Pink Weekend, October 7-8, 2017.

What is Worship in Pink Weekend?
Worship in Pink Weekend is a grassroots initiative that provides the opportunity for congregations of all faiths to spread the life-saving message about breast health and early detection in their respective congregations. The main goal of the program is to provide breast cancer awareness and education, and increase the number of women receiving mammograms, and honor breast cancer survivors. Worship in Pink is a program held in various cities across the country.

Additionally, your congregation in is invited to join us for a special “11th Anniversary Pink Sunday” worship service to “Celebrate Life, Increase Awareness and Inspire Hope.”  Pink Sunday is the special event culminating WIP weekend. This city-wide ecumenical faith service will be held at Fairfield Missionary Baptist Church (1004 S. Dickerson Road, Goodlettsville, TN) on Sunday, October 8th at 4pm. This crowning event gathers together Middle Tennesseans to celebrate lives of people affected with breast cancer, encourage their families and caregivers, to increase breast cancer awareness to our religious community and inspire hope to those individuals stricken with the disease.

Who takes part in Worship in Pink Weekend?
Any church, synagogue, mosque or other religious organization within the Affiliate’s  service area.

To get involved:
• Identify 2 Ambassadors to represent your congregation. At least one Ambassador should be comfortable communicating via email and be able to serve as the primary contact for your congregation.

• Ambassador(s) will lead the planning of a breast health-related activity during the Worship in Pink Weekend (October 7-8th) and will encourage members to attend Pink Sunday Worship service at 4pm on Sunday, October 8th at Fairfield Missionary Baptist Church.

What does NCBWIM and Komen provide?

For each registered congregation, the Ambassadors receive FREE educational materials and guidance during orientation and training sessions. The resources include giveaways with breast health messaging, a sample bulletin announcement, other educational materials, and training on breast health education.
