Foster & Adoptive Ministry
Foster & Adoptive Ministry (FAM)Creating opportunities for individuals within our church family to support foster and adoptive families within our community.
Foster and/or Adoptive Families
If you currently are a foster and/or adoptive family, we would love to walk alongside you and support your family. Care Community Teams are a group of people who are committed to help minimize some of life's daily or weekly tasks by bringing meals, helping with lawn care, child care, homework help, providing services, etc. Of course, you will get to know the whole team but the Care Community Leader is who will work through the details with you.

Care Community Team
Our foster/adoptive families are so grateful for each of you who are willing to come around them to provide practical, emotional, and spiritual support as they provide care for children in need. Care Community Team Members can serve in ways that they are best suited. Some of the opportunities include child care, dropping of a monthly meal, yard work, tutoring, minor home repair, etc. We even need people who would like to shop on short notice for families who have been notified that a child is being assigned to them and need items. To learn more, or if you are interested in joining a care team, fill out this quick form.
Interested in becoming a foster or adoptive family?
There are over 13,000 kids in Indiana’s Foster Care System who need a safe, loving, temporary home. While foster parenting means that you are taking in a child who has experienced trauma, you are also providing a safe haven that teaches a child that they have value and are loved. Research shows that the healthiest environment for a child who has been removed from their family is another family. When you become a foster family, you are making sure that a child doesn’t have to spend the night in a government office and can stay near familiar things such as schools and friends. Fostering a child gives space and opportunity for birth families to overcome the problems that required the removal in the first place. Request more information.
