Real Religion

Oct 24th 2009

With 143 million orphans in the world, the church has got to do something… so we thought we’d start with prayer.  Prayer to discover God’s heart for orphans, to intercede on their behalf, and to ask what we can/should do.

Calvary is hosting an orphan prayer event the weekend of National Orphan Sunday (Nov. 8). The event will be set up similar to our Easter Way of the Cross experience – experiential prayer stations designed to seek God’s heart and pray for orphans.  Spread the word.  This will be a great opportunity for groups to meet up, experience together, and perhaps discuss afterwards.  Also, there are plenty of opportunities to serve (set up and tear down).    If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me or Kendra Gettig at

Real Religion will take place on Friday November 6th from 4-9pm and on Saturday November 7th from 9-3pm.  It is self-guided, interactive, and family friendly. Take time to discover and reflect on what God has to say about orphans and to pray on their behalf.
