Dear Saddleback Family,
I missed you yesterday due to a bad cold... but am so excited about
Tonight's CIVIL FORUM on Orphans, Foster kids, & Vulnerable children.
Why should I care?
1. It is commanded by God as a test of your love.
“What God our Father considers to be pure and genuine religion is this: you must take care of orphans and widows in their suffering and keep yourself from being corrupted by the world.” James 1:27 (TEV)
2. The need is so great! 143,000,000 kids are growing up without parents!
What will I learn?
3. It is a signature issue of our PEACE Plan
I've lined up a world-class panel of theleading experts to interview on orphans and vulnerable children. We'll look at the biblical, social, and personal implications.
7:00 p.m. TONIGHT. Lake Forest Worship Center
As many of you know, we have made orphan care
a signature issue at our church, and tonight we want to educate the community on how urgent this issue really is. The orphan crisis impacts the lives of 143 million children every day, therefore, Saddleback Church is committed to help and enable our own community and the global community to care and act. The hope is that every person will both ask, and answer the question, “What can I do”?
