Get Involved!

Being a member of the 4th Day community holds many opportunities to get involved in the Cursillo movement. More importantly, these activities present you with the ability to serve your brothers and sisters in Christ as Christ served His apostles.  

 

Here you will find various ways and contact infomation for areas in which to consider participating. Please pray and discern about the areas in which you are being called.


"For I have given you an example, that as I have done to you, so you do also."  ~ John 13:15

Christ is counting on you!

SPONSOR SOMEONE: One of the best ways to get involved and to renew your own committment to Christ and the Cursillo movement is the sponsor someone. Make a friend, be a friend, and bring your friend to Christ. But remember to talk to God about your friend before you talk to your friend about God. For more information, visit our page on sponsoring HERE.
