Foster Care & Adoption
Minister for Foster Care and Adoption
In scripture we are called to look after the fatherless. For some of us that is through adoption, for some of us maybe it’s by becoming foster parents, and for some of us that could be through supporting those who have answered the call to adopt or foster. All of us can do something to serve children in our community, state, nation and world who are not with their birth parents. It is the desire of the Foster Care and Adoption Ministry to serve children and families and make the name of Jesus known.
