Neelsville Presbyterian Church Marks Orphan Sunday & Our Adoption into God’s Family PDF Print E-mail

Ellie Yao-Hua Clark baptismFrom the opening strains of the Schumacher / Ward hymn, "Though I was Born an Orphan," the November 3, 2013 service at Neelsville Presbyterian Church brought awareness of the plight of the orphan in tandem with the amazing truth that God redeems us through Jesus so that we may be adopted into his family as sons and daughters!

The Sacrament of Communion was celebrated and the Baptism of Ellie Yao-Hua Clark, daughter of Jon and Nina Clark was part of the worship (pictured at left).

Two years ago, PPL shared the story of the Clark's adoption of older sister Abby (left front) in our February, 2011 newsletter. Rev. Andrew Nagel conducted the baptism and preached from Galatians 3:26-4:7, proclaiming that we are "Orphans No More". His sermon audio is available on the church website.
