One hour each week.
At Take Me to Worship we believe that our efforts can make a huge difference. Join us in order to make an impact and bring about transformation in our world. Our goal is to be a catalyst for more dreams to be realized and more lives to be improved. We help people work together towards a more empowered and satisfying life.
If we want to improve Erie, that number needs to change.
Take Me To Worship is not a religion-driven project. It is a social-science and data driven project.
And the data says that religion matters in the lives of our kids.
Take Me to Worship is part of UnifiedErie, an effort to reduce violence through prevention. The movement is grounded in research from the PA Youth Survey that shows children who attend worship one hour per week do better in many areas of life including grades, family communication, reduced violence tendencies, lower risk of suicide and enhanced self-worth.
Take Me To Worship is a public awareness initiative to make Erie County residents aware of the impact that religion has on the young people of our community.
This campaign is not about a specific type of religion or a specific type of activity. It is just about informing people what science knows...that the research says positive effects are found if a child participates in organized religion for just one hour every week.
Everyone in Erie County is invited to take action.
And, most importantly, take them to worship!
Why Take Me To Worship?
Because the data says it matters.
Just one hour a week makes a difference in the life of a kid.
The key is weekly participation for one hour or more.
