Orphan Care & Adoption Ministry:
Our mission is to come alongside King Street Church partners who are accepting God’s call to adopt and to support them through prayer, education, encouragement, and financial grants.
Religion that is pure and undefiled before God, the Father, is this: to care for orphans and widows in their distress. James 1:27
Tuesday, September 19, 6:30 pm in M27: The Orphan Care and Adoption Ministry hosts a monthly support group for adoptive and foster parents. They offer encouragement for families at various stages in the journey. Their next meeting will be Tuesday, September 19th at 6:30 pm in M27. Come and meet others who understand your questions and can share from their experience. During the school year, the group meets each month on the 3rd Tuesday.
Tuesday, October 17, 6:30-8:00 pm in the Student Ministry Center: If you are interested in caring for a child through adoption or foster care, we encourage you to attend the Adoption & Foster Care Panel Discussion on Tuesday, October 17, from 6:30-8:00 pm, downstairs in the Student Ministry Center. This informal event will provide you with the chance to ask questions and hear from families who are already on the journey.
Many ways to help:
- PRAY: We encourage the KSC community to lift up orphans and their future families in prayer.
- ENGAGE: Gather with current and future adoptive parents to support, encourage, and pray for each other; supply helpful resources and provide financial grants for adoption expenses.
- GIVE: The average cost of adopting a child is $30,000. We are in need of donations to the church Adoption Fund so that we can provide vital financial help to those here within our body seeking to invite a child into their lives. You can always mark your check or offering envelope for “ADOPTION FUND.” Also, you can give online. Choose the “Give” option of the blue banner at the top of the homepage.
