Orphan Sunday started in a small, hard-pressed church in Zambia. the church members had little. But the pastor believed that all Christians are called to express God’s deep love for the fatherless in action. The church responded in astounding ways.
Today, God’s heart for orphans echoes around the globe as churches unite on Orphan Sunday, calling God’s people to be His hands extended to care for and love children who are without a loving family.
Our Orphan Sunday will help you connect with the biblical mandate to care for the fatherless in everyday life. Meet foster and adoptive families, hear how God turned a poor slave child destined for death into one of history’s greatest leaders, and learn how you can answer the call to defend the fatherless.
“Learn to do right; seek justice.
Defend the oppressed.
Take up the cause of the fatherless;
plead the case of the widow.”
