For the ninth consecutive year, the National Consortium of Black Women in Ministry (NCBWIM), Nashville Chapter and Susan G. Komen Central Tennessee have joined together to present Worship in Pink Weekend! If you are located in our Chattanooga or Upper Cumberland Regions, please click here.
Primary activities will occur within congregations during the Worship in Pink weekend, October 12-14th, 2018.
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. The main goal of the program is to increase breast cancer awareness, encourage early detection by increasing the number of women receiving mammograms and to honor breast cancer survivors.
Additionally, your congregation is invited to join us for the 12th Annual Pink Sunday worship service. The city-wide ecumenical faith service will be held at Fairfield Missionary Baptist Church on Sunday, October 14th at 4:00pm (1004 S. Dickerson Rd Goodlettsville, TN). This event gathers together Middle Tennesseans to celebrate the lives of people who are affected with breast cancer, their families and loved ones, to increase breast cancer awareness to our religious community and inspire hope for those impacted by the disease.
Who takes part in Worship in Pink Weekend?
Any church, synagogue, mosque or other religious organization within the Central Tennessee service area.
