Foster, Adoption & Orphan Care

"But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God" John 1:12

The mission of the Foster, Adoption & Orphan Care ministry, at Grace, is to glorify God by responding to the scriptures of caring for the orphan, fatherless, and child in need (James 1:27). This specific ministry within Grace Baptist seeks to further equip, connect, teach, model, and care for both the child in need and the church (the people) that God uses for this purpose. (Romans 8:14-16)
 

Join us for a morning of inspiration and learning how to love the orphan. 8-12:30pm at Grace Baptist Church. We will hear from our guest speaker, Jason Johnson, have opportunities to hear about various topics in our breakout sessions, and give you the opportunity to visit with over 20 agencies about their organizations. Registration is now open here.

Also....we'd love to have you bring your children along (birth-6th grade). K-6th graders will be a part of a special program where they, too, can be a part of loving on others. Childcare registration can be done here.
