Caring for Children

Scripture encourages the care of widowers and orphans.  This is the area covered by the Orphan Society.  Initially dealing with those cases were a parent or parents died, the sphere of work has been widened to cover children in the churches who have lost the loving care of one or both parents for whatever reason.

To qualify the family would be associated with one of the churches and be in regular attendance and have the endorsement of that church as a deserving case.  Monthly support while paid directly to the family, is also in the form of a pastoral visit.

It is a fact of history that many of those supported have come to faith in Christ and have gone on to support or be involved in the work of the churches and Association Departments.
