Are You Ready to Stand?

In 2004, one woman in Brownwood, Texas accepted the call to stand for abused, neglected, and abandoned children in her community. Her stand ignited a fire in many churches across the state of Texas and the entire nation. That fire is one that cannot be extinguished until every child has a home and the opportunity to experience the love of Jesus. 

As of March 2021, there are 15, 874 children in Texas foster care system, but still, there are more Churches. What would happen if every church proclaimed the call to care for widows and orphans and each church took in even just one child a year? This dream is why we will continue to observe Stand Sunday in 2021. 

Stand Sunday is traditionally observed the second Sunday of November, but it certainly can take place on any given Sunday. Once your church invites its people to stand, our team at Stand Sunday and Harvest Family Life Ministries is ready to further equip your church to defend and care for the children for whom the Lord may entrust into your care. Everyone has a role to play from being an advocate to an ally, and we are here to Stand with you.
