Adoption, Foster, & kinship Care

Whether you’ve been around Fellowship Church for a while as an adoptive, foster, or kinship family, or if you’re new to our community, we would love to get to know you. Below are links to people ready and waiting to support you, facebook groups, care groups, and even the first steps towards becoming an adoptive, foster, or kinship parent.

Take Your First Step

You can help us get to know you and your family's unique needs by filling out the Introduction Form, surround yourself with other adoptive, foster, and kinship families by selecting a Care Group, or take your first step towards adopting or fostering through KAFCAM—a  partner ministry who specializes in helping direct and equip families who feel ready to answer God's call to become adoptive or foster parents.

Adoption & FosteRING 101

November 13, 2022, 9:15am, Resource Center
Sponsored by our Chosen Children ministry, this introduction to adoption and fostering is designed for families who are interested in exploring these options or for those who want to support families through the process. Topics will include domestic and international adoption, foster care, the expense, fundraising and grants, the paper trail, and how to support others beyond giving money. 

Adoption Care

Financial Support

Fellowship partners with Lifesong Grants to financially aid families in the final steps of private adoptions.

Foster Care

How you can support our families

Foster, adoptive and kinship families are so important to us, and we have tangible ways for anyone to get involved. God does not call all of us to foster or adopt, but we are all called to care about the vulnerable. Helping  families in our area through some of the ways listed below gives all of us an opportunity to show the love of Jesus to those in need.

W.R.A.P. Ministry

WRAP is a tool that helps mobilize the people of Fellowship Church to reflect Jesus to children who are adopted, fostered, or in kinship care and the families who care for them.

It consists of four primary ways the body of Christ can serve these children and the families who have welcomed them into their home:
W | Words of Encouragement – Text, call & write letters of encouragement.
R | Relief Care – Give  families respite through acts of babysitting, taking children out for playdates, and more.
A | Acts of Service – Provide meals, help with housework, lawn care, and more.
P | Prayer – Spend time in intentional prayer for the family you are assigned.

Respite Care

Sometimes our parents just need a break. We have opportunities to help with babysitting, serve at a Parent's Night Out event, etc.

First Responders

First Responders are people who serve families at the moment they receive news of a child placement by providing groceries, meals, clothing, and light chores.

Safe Families

Safe Families for Children hosts vulnerable children and creates extended family–like support for desperate families through a community of devoted volunteers who are motivated by compassion to keep children safe and families intact.
