Orphan Sunday & Stand Sunday Toolkits

Take the guesswork out of planning your Orphan Sunday or Stand Sunday participation!

We’ve made planning Orphan Sunday and Stand Sunday easier than ever. Your participation can take many different expressions. We’ve put together these toolkits for churches, ministries and communities of all sizes.

ORPHAN SUNDAY

As Christians respond to God’s call to care for the orphan, lives are transformed. Orphan Sunday varies as much as the people and churches involved. You can participate through sermons and Sunday school classes, prayer gatherings, and simple meals, fundraisers and live concerts.

This resource-rich toolkit will help you:

  • Get Inspired

  • Create a Plan

  • Promote your Observance

  • Inspire Others

STAND SUNDAY

Stand Sunday, alongside Orphan Sunday, is a time for the body of Christ to stand for children that are the victims of abuse, neglect or abandonment resulting in being placed in foster care. Our prayer is that there will be more families waiting for children than children waiting for families.

This resource-rich toolkit will help you:

  • Get Inspired

  • Create a Plan

  • Promote your Observance

  • Inspire Others

ONE Child Campaign

ONE Child. That's all it takes.

You have seen a lot of big numbers about children in foster care and orphanages.
While these numbers seem large, this is a very solvable problem.
There are five times as many Christian churches in the world as waiting children!
Our dream is simple.

Will your ONE CHURCH choose just ONE CHILD, and pray for that child until they are in a safe and permanent family?

FIND A WAITING CHILD
