Orphan Sunday

Sunday, November 12, 2023

Orphan Sunday began in one small church in Africa 20 years ago and grew into a worldwide movement of Christians standing up for vulnerable children. Will your church join us on the first Sunday during National Adoption Month to spread the urgent message to your congregation?

Here’s how you can help on Orphan Sunday:

  • Incorporate an adoption message into your sermon
  • Host a foster care and adoption information meeting at your church
  • Show a video about adoption
  • Start a foster care and adoption ministry at your church, providing wraparound care for families on the front lines of this ministry
  • Support, volunteer and promote foster care and adoption ministries


As Christians, the Bible calls us to protect orphans and care for those who cannot care for themselves. Maybe you can’t foster or adopt a child in need, but everyone can do something and every church can support the families walking alongside vulnerable children.
