Compassion International is a Christian child development organization dedicated to releasing children from poverty. Their ministry is two-fold: to provide developmental programs through the local churches to deliver children from economic, physical, social and spiritual poverty enabling them to become responsible, fulfilled Christian adults. And Compassion speaks out for children in poverty – informing, motivating and equipping others to become advocates for children. This is our opportunity, as a church family, to respond to God’s command to care for the orphans and to fulfill the Great Commission by “spiritually adopting” children through sponsorship. Join us for Compassion Sunday so we can tell a child “I’m here for you”.
