Compassion Sunday, May 7, 2017

Compassion Sunday is May 7, not only here at Rockford Res, but also around the world!

For those of you who may not know, Compassion International is a Christian child development organization dedicated to releasing children from poverty. They provide child development programs to deliver children from economic, physical, social and spiritual poverty. This enables these once impoverished children to become responsible and fulfilled Christian adults. Compassion also speaks out for children in poverty – informing, motivating and equipping others to become advocates for children.

Perhaps you have always wanted to sponsor a child, but just haven’t been sure how to start or have a few questions before you do. May 7 is the day you can get your questions answered and start making a difference in a child’s life. Compassion Sunday is designed for Christians across the country to speak up for children who are living in dangerous and tragic circumstances. On Compassion Sunday, we will have an event table available for your questions and to give you an opportunity to share your heart and change a child’s life forever. To find a child to sponsor you may visit or select from the packets we will have available at the event table on May 7.
