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)
FOREVER FAMILIES MEETING TIMES

"Religion that is pure and undefiled before God, the Father, is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world."
