As we contemplate the New Testament’s teaching about orphan care, did you know that our church is part of significant funding and governance of a children’s home here in Texas?
We belong to the Southern Baptists of Texas Convention, a network of 2,500 local churches in Texas. Our 2,500 churches each contribute money from our budget giving to a shared fund called the Cooperative Program (CP). NEHBC gives 10% of our budget giving to the CP. Through the CP we fund, own, and operate significant ministries both in Texas and around the world.
One of the ministries we fund is the Texas Baptist Children’s Home. This means if you give money to NEHBC, you are funding an incredible orphan care ministry here in Texas. During the first seven months of 2016, 41 children were placed into families through adoption and many more are being cared for! Glory to God.
