Orphan Care

mo•sa•ic - NEHBC Orphan Care Ministry

Why is the ministry named "Mosaic":

Google: a picture or pattern produced by arranging together small colored pieces of hard material, such as stone, tile, or glass.
Merriam-Webster: something made up of different things that together form a pattern.

Our God is a God of adoption. Patterned after God's adoption of men and women into his family, adoption produces a beautiful picture of His nature and plan by bringing orphans into families. Thus forming a human mosaic that reflects God's plan of salvation for mankind.

The Calling to Care for the Orphan:

James 1:27 Religion that is pure and undefiled before God, the Father, is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world.
Ephesians 1:3-5 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places, even as he chose us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and blameless before him. In love he predestined us for adoption as sons through Jesus Christ, according to the purpose of his will, to the praise of his glorious grace, with which he has blessed us in the Beloved.
Psalm 68:5-6a Father of the fatherless and protector of widows is God in his holy habitation. God settles the solitary in a home...
Psalm 82:3 Give justice to the weak and the fatherless; maintain the right of the afflicted and the destitute.
Job 31:18 From childhood I have cared for orphans like a father, and all my life I have cared for widows.

NEHBC Orphan Care Ministry:

We desire to model God’s spirit of adoption as He settles children in families. Our ministry goal is to come alongside families who:

  • are considering or are in the process of adoption;
  • have completed an adoption;
  • are considering or are currently fostering a child; or
  • are open to or actively involved in ministering to orphans.
