orphan care

caring for orphans

GracePoint Church partners with Every Orphan’s Hope, located in DFW and Zambia! The mission of Every Orphan's Hope is to rescue and raise up Zambian orphans to new life in Christ by providing them with a new family and home rather than just an orphanage.

Every Orphan’s Hope builds brand new families instead of orphanages, imitating how God the Father rescues us from death and adopts us into His family through the sacrifice of Jesus Christ. One widow and eight orphans make up a new family. Through prayer and close relationships with the local church in Zambia, they identify godly widows who desire to follow God’s specific calling on their lives to raise orphaned children as part of a new family.  EOH not only provides these children with families and homes, but also seeks to disciple and prepare them for fruitful lives in society as adult disciples.

 Our goal as a church is to raise 150 bikes and $5,000 to ship the bikes to Zambia. The bikes raised will be repaired and sold in Zambian run bike shops at low rates to those who need this transformative mode of transportation. 100% of the proceeds from the bike sales directly support Every Orphans Hope in raising orphans in widow headed families in Zambia.

SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 8

9:30 AM "Explore Orphan Care" Hour
10:45 AM Orphan Sunday Service
We will be joining churches all over the world in what is called Orphan Sunday. This is a day set aside where the church universal comes together to share God's heart for orphans, to raise awareness about the orphan crisis locally and internationally, and to take intentional steps as a church to care for orphans.

That Sunday, every age group will participate in learning about God's heart for orphans and you will hear from families in our own church about how their lives have been impacted by foster care, adoption, and international orphan care.
