Our Events

We have so many great events through the year for you and your family. We would love for you to get connected as we learn, grow, and celebrate together!

Picnic – A gathering for families–a time for fellowship and fun for all ages. Entertainment has included a bouncy castle, water balloon toss, and a potluck meal. The picnic is held in late summer in Sioux Center, Iowa.

Auction – This is a special night of fun, fellowship, and community building which includes an auction, a free meal, and specialized children’s activities. This event is the one and only annual fundraiser that the ministry hosts to provide for the grants and on-going orphanage expenses. It is held each November in Sioux Center, Iowa.

Empowered to Connect Simulcast – This is a great time to learn and connect with other adoptive families by becoming equipped with practical tools and learning about valuable resources.  This simulcast is hosted through Empowered to Connect in collaboration with other organizations.   

Orphan Sunday Events – This is a time of sweet celebration for all the Lord has done. Our day includes corporate worship, a catered luncheon for adoptive/foster care families, and a time for family fellowship. It is held each November in Sioux Center, Iowa.
