To our brothers and sisters in Christ in the Lower Mainland of BC:
We hope that this finds you well! We would like invite you to a night of worship, information, and networking this June at the Chandos Pattison Auditorium. We are planning a worship benefit concert with Brian Doerksen; “Songs for the Fatherless”, June 27th, 7PM.
This worship event has 3 main purposes:
- To come together and worship God – for His glory!
- To learn and network together, as the body of Christ and to learn more about how we can get (more) involved in orphan care in Canada and around the globe.
- To fundraise for The Father’s Heart Foundation Canada
- Fundraising for a construction project (first residential apartment building for orphan care) and general operational funds, for The Father’s Heart Village in El Salvador. Once built, this apartment building will provide family to up to 50 orphaned children, and will be a place where The Father’s Heart Foundation can offer sustainable and holistic care to both those children, and to the 600 impoverished families that live in the surrounding community. The master plan also includes 8 adoptive-style family homes, a multipurpose community outreach and education building, medical and dental clinics, sports and recreation areas, team and visitor housing, and a sustainability farm. Our goal is to become 100% sustainable and not dependant on regular outside donor-based funds, but we need help to get there! (We are not primarily looking for monthly donors but for one-time donations for construction).
There are over 120, 000 children waiting for family in El Salvador. With your help we can begin to place orphaned children into family this year.
Also, did you know, that in Canada there are over 30,000 children waiting for a family? And if only one family from every two Canadian churches adopted, there would be no more children waiting? At “Songs for the Fatherless”, we will also be letting people know how they can get involved in orphan care in Canada; featuring “Home for Every Child Adoption Agency” and “Orphan Sunday Canada”.
Are you already involved in orphan care and global missions? Come and worship and network anyways! Let us know what you are doing, and bring your contact info to share. Get some free resources to help your congregation to fulfil the Great Commission and to live out James 1:27, with things like “Orphan Sunday” (which is not church or parachurch/NGO specific and can be used by any church around the world).
Tickets to this event are $25 at the door or $20 in advance. We have a special Church Group Rate, just for you! Bring a group of 20-30 people from your Church for only $300. (Children under 10 are free! And we will have special activities for children in the lobby).
On behalf of the fatherless,
Director of Communication, Teams, and Childcare
