Call to Action

  • Defend the weak and the fatherless; uphold the cause of the poor and the oppressed." Psalm 82:3

  • "Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute. Speak up and judge fairly; defend the rights of the poor and needy." Proverbs 31:8-9

  • "But the kind of love that God created and demonstrated is a costly one because it involves sacrifice and presence. It's a love that operates more like a sign language than being spoken outright.”  Bob Goff, Love Does

  • "And whoever welcomes one such child in my name welcomes me." Matthew 18:5

  • Indiana Department of Child Services receives over 13,000 calls every month.

  • "Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth." 1 John 3:18
