When you hear orphan, what do you envision? If it includes America’s 400,000 foster care children, you would be accurate.
This includes children at the nearby elementary school, displaced teens whose parents lost their jobs and are now homeless, and pre-adolescents growing up without Mom or Dad due to substance abuse or incarceration. They live in our communities and God has called us to them.
Let us give “voice” to these children.
What can we do to help?
This Sunday, November 4, is Orphan Sunday for much of the Christian world. Come to service this Sunday at Lakes Church to learn more about how you can help the thousands of children in foster care.
We will also be gathering a team of people who have a heart for this issue and for children to start some ministry in our own community. If you’re interested in participating please contact Pastor Josh at firstname.lastname@example.org
