"Hope for Kids" Ministry Events
The Hope for Kids ministry at Moody Church in Chicago is hosting two upcoming events.
1. Outpour Prayer Night is a Chicago-area prayer night for As Our Own, a Christ-based community driven movement in India that rescues young girls from certain enslavement. The event is free and will take place on Thursday, Oct. 13th from 7 – 8:15 in room 108 at Moody Church (1635 N. LaSalle, Chicago, IL 60614). We’ll hear a ministry update from the founder, hear testimonies of children rescued, and spend time in prayer and worship for God’s work in the lives of vulnerable children in India. http://www.asourown.org/.
The ministry has 2 orphanages for mostly children whose mother’s work in red-light districts. Working with their mothers, As Our Own rescues these children out of the districts and gives them a long-term care and solid education—a life-changing gift in India. They also work with local churches to stop the cycle of enslavement in India.
2. Orphan Sunday—11/6/2011—Moody’s worship service will focus on orphan care and will be followed by an Orphan Sunday Luncheon from 1-2:15. Attendees will be served lunch and hear from Carolyn Twietmeyer of Project Hopeful, advocate for adopting children with HIV/AIDS. You'll also hear several testimonies from Moody congregation members who are caring for orphans—whether through adoption, Safe Families, or volunteering with one of 7 ministry partners.
