One Day. One Voice. One Purpose.

On Orphan Sunday, Christians stand for the orphan. We are a people called to defend the fatherless…to care for the child who has no family…to visit orphans in their distress. Each event is locally-led. Sermons and small groups, concerts and prayer gatherings, shared meals and youth activities—each rousing believers with God’s call to care for the orphan and what we can do in response.

quote

I pray that every Gospel-transformed congregation will observe Orphan Sunday, calling all Christians to our mandate to image Christ by caring for his little brothers and sisters, the fatherless of the world.

Russell Moore, President of Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission

Focus on the Family is honored to be a part of Orphan Sunday, calling believers to care for orphans in need. As someone who was orphaned as a child, I’m thrilled to see the church working together on this cause that is so close to the heart of God.

Jim Daly, President and CEO, Focus on the Family
