This week the Christian Alliance for Orphans launches the nationwide Orphan Sunday campaign. What is Orphan Sunday? Simply this: a chance for Christians committed to “the cause of the fatherless” to spread that vision to their church, community and friends. Churches, groups and individuals across the country and beyond are free to create their own unique activities for November 8, 2009. These events will range from a sermon or prayer during Sunday services, to a small group study or prayer gathering, from a concert to a recruiting event for an orphan-serving ministry. The Orphan Sunday Website created by the Alliance provides an array of resources, ideas and other support to help individuals seize the opportunity.
How are you planning to answer the call on Orphan Sunday? Post your plans and share your ideas on the event page . Each local Orphan Sunday event will be a candle lit to cast light on God’s call to “defend the cause of the fatherless.” Together, they add up to a nationwide blaze.
