Unified Erie Launches “Take Me to Worship” Campaign
ERIE, Pa. – Starting this week, the Unified Erie anti-violence initiative is launching a message, that taking kids to worship helps keep them out of trouble. At Frontier Park, community and leaders rolled out a six week long media campaign for television, print, and billboard messages.
The campaign is called, “Take Me to Worship.” The goal is to involve the more than 330 local faith based organizations, in Unified Erie’s push to keep kids on the right path. Studies show even one hour of worship each week, makes a significant difference in a child’s life.
Many local church leaders are on board. Among them Matthew Judd, pastor of Glenwood United Methodist Church. “What I like is the data shows what people in the church, in the faith community already know, that faith matters. It provides the protective factor to keep our children safe,” Pastor Judd said
Unified Erie has tool kids for groups that want to get involved in the initiative. You can learn more at www.takemetoworship.org.
