Mansion Sunday, November 3rd, will be a special day, set aside in conjunction with “National Orphan Sunday,” that specifically focuses on Tupelo Children’s Mansion.
Tupelo Children’s Mansion is “pure religion” in action, the fulfillment of James 1:27— becoming the hands of God to the most vulnerable of our society, the fatherless.
Since this is such a big deal to God, I’m asking you to consider making Mansion Sunday a big deal at your church. On November 3rd, please do three things: 1) Inspire your congregation with the “pure religion” mission of the Mansion, 2) Pray for the children and the staff, and 3) Receive a special offering to bless the work at TCM.It really is amazing how much God cares for orphans. The Lord said to His people in Jeremiah 7:6-7, “If you do not oppress the fatherless…then I will let you live in this place,
in the land I gave your forefathers.” God was letting us know that if we want to keep our “Promise Land” privileges, we need to take care of the orphans. Evidently, God took this very seriously.
God’s plan for us is to see the need, hear the call and open our arms. That’s what Mansion Sunday is all about—taking a designated time to pause in the rush of our lives to help make a difference in the life of a child, that comes from a hard place.
Please join with pastors and supporters across North America and feature Mansion Sunday on November 3rd. For more information about Mansion Sunday, go to http://mansionkids.org/ Downloadable media is available. You can also give online!
