The Louisiana Baptist Foster & Adoption Network is partnering with churches and families across the state to equip them in establishing and providing support ministries.
The Gathering Place, a Southern Baptist church in Tioga, La., recently hosted a special service and church-wide luncheon to learn about the many ways churches and families can reach out to children in need.
Through this event, numerous families expressed interest in serving as foster and adoptive parents and several families will begin the certification process for foster care and adoption in the coming weeks.
Another church in the Central Louisiana area plans to establish a support group for foster and adoptive parents and is also providing a meeting room for foster parent training.
A church in the Monroe area is beginning a prayer support ministry to pray specifically for children available for adoption who need an adoptive family. A church in New Orleans has developed plans to build its first foster home and establish a multifaceted foster care and adoption ministry.
There are many ways Louisiana churches can bridge the gap between the heart of God and the children who need to experience His love and care.
