Event Details

Saturday, October 5th, 2013
1pm-4:30pm

Our God has an enormous heart for orphans, calling his people to serve, love, and care for those whose biological parents cannot care for them. The Psalmist writes of God: “O Lord, you hear the desire of the afflicted; you will strengthen their heart; you will incline your ear to do justice to the fatherless and the oppressed” (Psalm 10:17-18). Similarly, in the New Testament, we are told that “Religion that is pure and undefiled before God, the Father, is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world” (James 1:27). There are an overwhelming number of orphans in our city and in our world, but God has provided for us a number of opportunities to express his love for orphans, whether it be through adoption or some other form of relationship. Join us for a Saturday afternoon conference as we discuss God’s heart and are exposed to some of the opportunities to show God’s love, which are available to you regardless of your age or life-stage.
