Church Involvement

Church Involvement

In 1 Corinthians 12:12-27, the apostle Paul discusses God's design for the church, with Jesus being the leader above all. We were purposefully and intentionally designed by God to fulfill roles that were intended to work in unison with the gifts, skills, and abilities of others. The body works most efficiently when every part performs its intended role.

When we connect with a church, we strive to help individuals and groups within that congregation consider how God is calling them to serve in the foster care community. There is a role for everyone to fulfill. Sometimes one decision makes it possible for another person to serve. We understand that God has not called every family to foster children in their home however, your decision to support foster families within your church may encourage someone to answer God's call for their family to foster.
