Abstract: Widowhood is a nerve-wracking life situation that not only affects the widowed person but also the orphaned children in their direct care who in most cases have to cope with the loss of one of their parents. The plight of widows who care for orphaned children is not fully addressed by the church since more efforts are directed towards the care of orphaned children. This leaves aside in-care-child widows and their link with the orphans they directly take care of. The study addressed the role of the church in the support of widows for the care of orphaned children in the selected seventh day Adventist church stations (Riana, Suneka, Nyanchwa, Itumbe, Riondong’a, Masaba and Masimba), South Kenya conference.

Simple random sampling was used in the selection of widows and census for committee members and pastors. data collection tools was questionnaire, interviews and focused group discussions (FGDS).
