Foster Care Opportunities
Info Meeting Dinner: Saturday, October 1, 6 PM
Each year, hundreds of vulnerable kids enter Montgomery County’s foster care system. Some are restored to their own families after the crisis ends. But others remain in the system, traumatized by painful circumstances and broken relationships. During the month of September, a special photo display in our church’s main lobby will feature kids living in our area who want to be, and are able to be, adopted out of the foster care system. Please take a few minutes to visit the Heart Gallery and pray for these children. Pastor Dave Brewer and his wife Jen have opened their home to 10 foster care kids over the past few years. On Saturday evening, October 1, they will host a dinner at their home for anyone who would like to know more about foster care.
Saturday, October 29, 8:30 AM - 5 PM, Spurgeon Room
World events have caused growing concerns about Islam. We may think of Muslims as unapproachable or even hostile. Having spent ten years on the mission field, guest instructors James and Faith Cha will answer common questions and show how to form friendships with Muslim neighbors and co-workers. The day’s six sessions include prayer, discussion, videos, group discussion, and action assignments. $10 fee includes lunch and student manual.
