Forever Families Ministry
"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 Forever Families 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)
The meetings are a place for couples that are interested or have already Fostered/Adopted children to gather for information, support, prayer & fellowship. Upcoming meeting dates: 11/7, 12/5*, 1/9, 2/6, 3/5, 4/2, 5/7 and 6/4 at 5:30pm in room C215.
*12/5 meeting will be our annual potluck. We will be in room D223.
