“On Orphan Sunday, Christians stand for the orphan. We are a people called to defend the fatherless…to care for the child that 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. From many sources, one voice. Each November, thousands of events will echo across America and around the globe, all sharing a single goal: that God’s great love for the orphan will find echo in our lives as well. Orphan Sunday is your opportunity to rouse church, community and friends to God’s call to care for the orphan.”

Does your church offer practical ways to care for orphans?  We would love to partner with you in reaching orphaned children in Ethiopia – stabilizing families to prevent orphans, promoting family sustainability and linking arms with the Ethiopian church to promote adoption in strong Christian Ethiopian families.  For more information, contact us at:


The Christian Alliance for Orphans provides lots of helpful resources to help you bring Orphan Sunday to your church or small group.  Visit orphansunday.org for more information.
