Happy Orphan Sunday!!! November 8th is part of the worldwide movement where churches recognize the indescribable love our FATHER had for us to seek us out and adopt us as His own children. This moves us to compassion to do the same for the orphans of this world.
Our church has not yet celebrated an Orphan Sunday. I am dying for them to in 2010!!!! How incredible would it be to see the adoptive families of our church give testimony to what God has done, and to hear sermons on our own adoption… how incredible to see people moved to faith in God by realizing His Fatherly love for us, & to see Christians moved to adopt sweet orphans from around the globe!!!
The Orphan Sunday website is an incredible resource. They have everything needed to bring awareness to your church – both to the doctrine of adoption, and the practical loving act of physical adoption. They have sermon outlines, Sunday school lessons, promotional posters, etc. Start praying today about next year… Orphan Sunday 2010! Let’s bring it to our churches!!
