Orphan Sunday Resources

Resources for Your COTN Sponsorship Event

On Orphan Sunday (November 8, 2020), you and your whole church can make God's love tangible for orphaned and destitute children in Africa and the Caribbean.

Join Children of the Nations and the Christian Alliance for Orphans on Orphan Sunday to host a child sponsorship event at your church or home.

If you'd like to host a sponsorship drive on November 8th or any other Sunday this year, please contact us today so we can connect you with a COTN representative in your area! 


If you want to host your own event, no problem! We'll provide you with all the tools you need to host a sponsorship drive, including profiles of children needing sponsors, signup forms, talking points, video links, and step-by-step instructions for the day of your event.

For more information about how you and your church can be involved in sponsoring children through COTN, please contact Fraser Ratzlaff at fraserratzlaff@cotni.org or 206-745-7932.


Church calendars can fill up quickly, so don't wait! Ask your pastor or missions director about partnering with COTN to live out what the Apostle James calls "true religion" (James 1:27)—caring for the orphaned and vulnerable.


In meeting two of our four sponsored children, I have seen firsthand how it provides the basic necessities in a loving, Christ-centered family environment where they can be healthy, attend school, and have hope for a brighter future. We often think we are blessing the children through sponsoring, and we do, but they truly bless us in return.
