We believe the Church is the answer to the orphan care crisis in our world, and that connecting people in community and equipping them biblically are essential if we want to see the people of God go all in to care for kids and strengthen families. 

This 6-Session ALL IN Orphan Care: Small Group Curriculum is designed to help your church establish a growing and sustainable culture of orphan care through the context of community and equipping. At its core, ALL IN Orphan Care is about the theology of the Gospel of our adoption into the family of God through the work of Jesus and how your church can vividly declare and demonstrate that through the care of the marginalized, abused, neglected and orphaned. 

The complete small group curriculum includes the following 6 sessions:

  • What Is An Orphan And Why Should We Care for Them?
    Exploring God's heart for the orphan and our mandate to care for them.
     
  • The Theology of Adoption
    A look at how the imagery of adoption throughout Scripture paints a vivid picture of our redemption in Jesus.
     
  • How Orphan Care Displays the Gospel
    Uncovering three unique, tangible ways our care of orphans reflects God's care of us in Jesus.
     
  • The Other Side of Orphan Care
    Pursuing the goal of permanence through both prevention and adoption efforts.
     
  • Making Orphan Care Small
    Embracing the call not to change the world for all orphans, but to change the world of at least one.

     
  • Identifying Your Role
