Did You Miss Mansion Sunday?

November 14th, 2012

If you are reading this and missed Mansion Sunday on November 4th, it is not too late to have your own special Mansion Sunday on the Sunday of your choosing. Mansion Sunday is a day that is set aside to specifically focus 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.

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.

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 your Mansion Sunday, 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.

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 across North America and feature a Mansion Sunday at your church. To download a printable flyer and video, go to www.mansionkids.org.
