Widow Widower Luncheon
Throughout the entire Bible God has placed a high value on the importance of caring for widows among the people of God. In fact, the Bible says that God himself takes special interest in the plight of widows.
Father of the fatherless and protector of widows is God in his holy habitation. Psalm 68:5
The Lord tears down the house of the proud but maintains the widow’s boundaries.
But the means God uses to protect and maintain widows is often his own people. That’s why we’re given these instructions throughout the Bible: Learn to do good; seek justice, correct oppression; bring justice to the fatherless, plead the widow’s cause. Isaiah 1:17
At NCA our fifth graders take a special interest in the widows and widowers at Northside Baptist Church. Each year the students plan and prepare a special Valentine’s Day Luncheon for them. The luncheon is planned with beautiful hand-written invitations, gorgeous decorations, entertainment, and a delicious meal. Our students want the widow and widowers to feel special and to know how much God loves them. In return, the students are overwhelmed by the love they receive from the widows and widowers. “Love never fails!” 1 Cor. 13:8
