Tomorrow is November! Do you know what that means?

November is Adoption Awareness Month, and tomorrow is National Orphan Sunday. Throughout the month of November, in addition to posts about missions and outreach at Grace Church, we’ll be highlighting some stories, thoughts, and challenges related to an area of ministry that is precious to God and that is precious to Grace Church: Caring for orphans! We hope you’ll bookmark the blog and check back often.

To kick off the series of blogs, we encourage you to check out this video from one organization who is helping to deal with the orphan crisis in our world. While you watch, please prayerfully consider what YOU can do to help.

The statistics can be overwhelming. This Sunday, stop by the missions table to pick up a FREE copy of Orphan Justice by Johnny Carr.  Using his own personal experience and a close look at what the Bible has to say about the Church’s role in meeting the needs of orphans, Carr shares how we can move from just a discussion of the issue to action. Check back in on the blog on Wednesdays this month as we hear from families who have been tangibly involved through foster care and adoption.
