Expectant Parents Ministry: Pregnancy, Adoption and Foster Care
Welcoming a little one into a home is a wonderfully exciting time as well as exhausting and challenging. In I John, we are told “Dear children, let us not love with words or tongue but with actions and in truth.” (I John 3:18). For families who are expecting, have newborns or are fostering or adopting, this ministry seeks to provide support through our prayer ministry, meal delivery, letters, flowers and other support as needed. The ministry extends beyond these initial touch points and connects the families to the greater life of the church. To let us know how we can support you, or to sign up to volunteer through prayer, meals and flower deliveries, send us an email. We look forward to hearing from you!
