Sunday, November 11

One Day. One Voice. One Purpose.

Stand with churches across America for kids in foster care.

Orphan Sunday is a day for the Church to come together, “One Day. One Voice. One Purpose” in thought and deed, to focus on those children in crisis around the world.

Stand Sunday has emerged over the last two years as an effort for the Church to focus on caring for children and families in foster care in the United States. It began after a pastor asked his people this question: “Who will stand with me to defend, care, and support abused, abandon, and neglected children in our community?”

Watch Bishop Aaron Blake and the start of Stand Sunday.

There are 8,918 children in the foster care system in Tennessee. CAFO (the Christian Alliance for Orphans) has just issued a challenge to the churches of Tennessee! There are 95 counties in Tennessee and they’d like to see ONE church in EACH county praying for the orphan or for children in foster care on November 11th! Let’s engage in this spark to add to the fire that’s created for the fatherless on this day! Engage your church and ask your friends and families in other counties! We will help you! Message us here!

Get your church involved today!

“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.”
