Mission 1:27 | HOPE FOR THE FATHERLESS
“Pure and undefiled religion before our God and Father is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself unstained by the world.” James 1:27
In response to God’s clear commands to care for the fatherless, Mission 1:27 provides support and encouragement to those seeking to adopt or foster a child, along with involvement in ministries that impact orphans on a local and international level.
Orphan Sunday | November 8, 2020
On any given day in South Carolina, there are more than 4,600 children in foster care, yet there are only around 2,800 foster families. That means there are around 1,800 children in our state with no place to call home.
Our call to be the light for orphans and foster children has never been more important, as it is always the vulnerable who suffer most when times are hard. Your prayers and acts of service, whether humble or grand, will bring light in a dark place.
How will you “Care for THE orphan?”
