During a recent Sunday message, Rusty Hutson asked us to do something. He asked us to pray and he asked us to learn about foster care in Lee County. He asked us to do this during the summer as we move toward our next step as a church in the fall. One of the great needs of our community is for foster parents to care for children in need of a home. And we can not and will not sit idly by while children need these homes to care and provide for their deepest needs in difficult times, whether that is for a short time or for a lifetime. We need to ask what our role can be in impacting the foster care needs of Lee County. Part of understanding that role is to know more about the problem.
To learn more alongside other members of our Cornerstone family, we have three lunches scheduled during the summer. These lunches are designed to answer some of the more common questions around foster care.
- Sunday, May 20 at 12:30-2:30 pm (Hamilton Road site)
- Sunday, June 24 at 12:30-2:30 pm (Lee-Scott site)
- Sunday, July 29 at 12:30-2:30 pm (Hamilton Road site)
Plan to attend at least one of these lunches. Being one church at two locations, you can attend any of the three lunches regardless of the location. Each lunch will include childcare, a light lunch and some great conversation about foster care.
Caring for children in need of a home is something we are called to do as Christians (James 1:27). You will gain an understanding of foster care- what it is and how it works, as well as how you can play a part in the ministry. Choose the date you would like to come and register below. Don’t forget to check out the Foster Care resources in the bookstore in the lobby of both sites on Sunday mornings.
