Religion that is pure and undefiled before God the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world. (ESV)
How FFC is Involved:
Love for neighbor isn't the gospel - but those who the gospel of Christ changes - certainly love their neighbor. And in the United States - there is an often overlooked neighbor - children who are in the foster care system. And at FFC, we are happy to play any role we can in supporting children in need. And we do this primarily in two ways -
1. Promoting Foster Care in those families who are able to take it on.
2. Supporting those families that do foster with the help of the church family.
We know that not everyone can foster - but no family should have to foster alone. The church can help. And so FFC has a point person in charge of assisting families who do foster. This is an administration role in which the point person organizes members in the church by helping them with all kinds of things - not limited to setting up babysitting, prayer support, and meals. Fostering is hard - no doubt about it. But it is worth it - and it doesn't have to be done alone.
If you'd like to be put on a list of families willing to help with foster parents, please contact our current point person.
