Orphan & Vulnerable Children (OVC) Care
“Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress…” – James 1:27a
We are so grateful for how our people are responding to God’s invitation to care for the millions of unwanted, unclaimed and uncared for children in our world. It is humbling to be part of a church that is already so eager and committed to taking up the cause of hurting kids everywhere. We hear of the beautiful ways you are shifting their stories and shaping their futures…from joining the Foster Care movement…to sponsoring children internationally…to bringing kids permanently into your home….to supporting adoptive families. We want to do a better job supporting and encouraging you as you engage the vulnerable and defenseless. For those of you who long to be a part of God’s passion for the orphan, but are not sure how….we would love to connect you to opportunities and resources to get you started.
Again, there are many ways to partner with God in caring for The Orphan, but the one thing we know is that we will be most effective as we do it together. Here are some ways we can collaborate together!
One Such Child Adoption Group – OSC is a group that meets to provide encouragement and resources to households who find themselves on the orphan care journey. Whether you are considering or actively involved in foster care or adoption, you are invited to attend! The group meets next on Sunday, September 24th from 4:30-6:30pm at the Warsaw Performing Arts Center (1 Tiger Lane, Warsaw). Childcare is provided. For more information, please contact Amy Smith: firstname.lastname@example.org
Laundry Ministry – Are you a laundry guru? Do you enjoy a sense of accomplishment from completing clean loads of laundry? Did you know you could use your skills to encourage foster and adoptive families? We have a team of folks who volunteer to do laundry for families who are adjusting to the addition of foster or adoptive children. If you would like to learn more about how you can participate in this ministry, please contact our Mission Coordinator, Jamie Koser at: email@example.com
