WHAT IS DECISION DAY?
The Book of Discipline of our Church directs that every Sunday Church School shall emphasize “Decision Day” annually in the month of October. It further directs that each Sunday Church School should undertake an evangelistic quota for active membership. In the recent past, the Decision Day Observance has also been an opportunity for the local churches to share financial gifts in support of the Department of Church Growth and Development. While financial gifts are welcomed during this observance, the Department of Church Growth and Development is placing its greatest emphasis upon decisions for Christ and faithfulness in ministry.
Decision Day is rooted and grounded in the quest to see our members, children, youth and adults move beyond religion and ritual to authentic relationships with God through Jesus Christ. While still targeting our youth and children, the Decision Day Observance must broaden its scope in order to reach people of all ages who are in need of making a life-changing decision for Christ.
