Orphan Sunday

Let's lift our voices together

Orphan Sunday is a day for your church to focus on the plight and reality of orphans around the world.

With a focus on God’s heart for the orphan and the call to Christians to act on their behalf. Please consider standing together with the Christian Alliance for Orphans in recognizing Orphan Sunday on November 4th this year. 

Any day of the year

Perhaps your church would choose to schedule on a different Sunday in November (National Adoption Month) or on more than one day throughout the year as in May (National Foster Care Month). No matter what your schedule, consider hosting an Orphan Sunday at your church.

Let's lift our voices together.

151 million children

Are orphaned, abandoned, or vulnerable. We must help. Some are only in need of resources to be able to stay with their families. Others need a loving forever family through adoption.

"Defend the oppressed. Take up the cause of the fatherless; plead the case of the widow." - Isaiah 1:17 - NIV
