Nov. 4:  Orphan Sunday:Guest Preacher: Angie Dunlevy, International Coordinator of Orphan Sunday for Honduras will preach on ways to minister to orphans, foster children and children in need.

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.  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. For information go to: https://cafo.org/orphansunday
