There are 147 million orphans in this world.  How can anyone begin to make a dent in this heartbreaking statistic?  Especially when not all can host an orphan, and not all can adopt…

But everyone has a voice.

You could use your voice to speak up for the fatherless. 

Orphan Sunday is one way that voices unite around the world for the cause of the fatherless.  Each and every one of those 147 million has a face, a name, a story… And on this day, a difference can be made for these children in our churches.


Orphan Sunday – November 6th 2011

On Orphan Sunday, Christians stand for the orphan. We are a people called to defend the fatherless…to care for the child that 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.
From many sources, one voice. On November 6th, thousands of events echo across America and around the globe, all sharing a single goal: that God’s great love for the orphan will find echo in our lives as well.
Orphan Sunday is your opportunity to rouse church, community and friends to God’s call to care for the orphan.

Please prayerfully consider what God may have you do on this day to defend the cause of the fatherless. 


Defend the cause of the fatherless.
Isaiah 1:17
