The Gospel & Foster Care

In recent weeks, I’ve been wading in even more concerning foster care.  Our city, state, and country are in desperate need of foster families.

The video above tells a story of a foster family with the gospel as the focus.

If you would desire more information on foster care, we hope you can join us for our Homes for Hope meeting.

Homes for Hope

There are 153 million orphans worldwide.  While that number is overwhelming, there is something you can do about one of them.

Your one life can change one life.

You are invited to attend a Homes for Hope information session which will educate and equip you about how you can help the orphans of this world.

On this evening, you will learn how you can help with:

  • International adoption
  • Domestic adoption
  • Sex trafficking victims
  • Foster care
  • Respite care
  • Financial support
  • Group home support

Please plan to attend.  This night will be a great introduction for many and a tangible list of next steps for all of us.

We will meet at the Family Life Center at North Side Baptist Church on Thursday, November 13th from 6:30-8:00.

Help us provide homes for hope.

Homes for Hope (What a Year!)

Homes for Hope was started at North Side in 2010. After a message on orphan care in December 2009, we were overwhelmed with the response of families wanting to help out. The interest was so great that Jeff Lethco told me to figure out a way to organize this so we can help people regularly.  The mission behind Homes for Hope is to make orphan care simple. If you have ever attempted to get through the paperwork attached to orphan care, you understand that sounds like an absurd statement. We can’t make orphan care easy, but we can make it simple. Our goal as a ministry is to provide logical steps in the 5 major ways to get involved.

James 1:27 commands us to care for orphans: “Pure and genuine religion in the sight of God the Father means caring for orphans and widows in their distress…” There are many ways to help rescue the 143,000,000 orphans in the world. Here’s how our church is assisting people:
