Mansion Sunday, November 2nd, 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 the “pure religion” of James 1:27—tending to the needs of the most vulnerable of our society, the fatherless.
God really does care 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 November 2nd, 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 lives of children coming from a hard places.
Please join with churches across North America and feature Mansion Sunday on November 2nd. For more information about Tupelo Children’s Mansion, go to www.mansionkids.org.
Sincere thanks on behalf of our Mansion Kids!
