Orphan Sunday 2018

WHAT IS ORPHAN SUNDAY?

On Orphan Sunday, November 11, 2018,  Christians around the globe celebrate the love of the God who “defends the cause of the fatherless” and calls us to do the same. Ultimately, Orphan Sunday makes God’s true character and the Gospel itself visible as God’s people explore and respond to His heart for the orphan in adoption, foster care, and global orphan ministry.  The Orphan Sunday movement in the US  where local churches across the country have set aside Sunday, Nov 11th as a day to pray for orphans (many have a sermon on orphans, do a meal after church with the donations going to serve orphans, etc.)

This year, friends and partners of Children’s Hope are making a special effort on Orphan Sunday to help orphans by calling attention to the support of the special needs orphans being cared for in Alenah’s Home in Beijing.

You can start now to join in this nationwide effort!
