Scripture is full of passages that speak about our adoption into the kingdom of God. We were chosen before the foundation of the world to be adopted into His kingdom (Eph 1:5), rescued from the domain of darkness and transferred into His marvelous light (1 Pet 2:9), and through Christ Jesus are called children of God (John 1:12). As those who have been adopted into God’s family, we are called to show His favor to those who are orphans. James 1:27 says “pure and undefiled religion is to care for widows and orphans…”
There are more than 143 MILLION orphans worldwide. Orphans are less likely to get an education and are more vulnerable to abuse, violence, and trafficking.
On November 18th from 8 to 11 p.m., Southeastern will be hosting it’s first annual Orphan Care Coffee House. It will cost $5 to attend, and there will be items for sale to raise support for orphan care worldwide. All funds will go to either the Canaan Orphanage in Haiti and Ryan and Sarah Clopton, a seminary couple who are adopting a child from Ghana.
Please come out to show your support for God’s mission to the orphans of the world.
