Orphan’s Embrace

The First Baptist Church wants to invite you to their fundraiser as they launch their campaign for Orphan's Embrace Adoption/Foster Fund.

This fund will provide grants and no-interest loans to help folks with adoption expenses and to bless families that have stepped up to foster kids.

Orphans' Embrace is a ministry of First Baptist Church designed to educate, engage and equip the body of Christ to biblically respond to the plight of the fatherless in our community and around the world.

Orphans' Embrace is excited to provide education and training through their partnership with New Horizons! Their partnership team will walk with you each step of the way. From your first inquiry to your final signature, Orphans' Embrace will be there as you prayerfully consider God's plan for your family. The process of foster care and adoption can be rather overwhelming.

 Foster parenting is both rewarding and challenging! Relief and Respite Care offers foster parents the opportunity to take a "break" from fostering. Depending on specific situations, a foster family may not be able to travel with their foster children, and the state requires that foster children stay with certified providers. Volunteering to provide Relief and Respite Care is an opportunity to minister to those ministering to children. Through their partnership with New Horizons, you can receive the required certification to provide Relief Care and/or Respite Care.

Orphans' Embrace hopes to ease the financial burden of those choosing to adopt by providing financial assistance to help with the cost of adoption. They desire to serve an ever-growing number of Christian families as they pursue God's call to add to their families through the miracle of adoption.

  Bringing children home is both exciting and exhausting! Becoming a Wrap Around Family is an opportunity to rejoice with and support both foster and adopted children and their families. This is an opportunity for the church to provide tangible support to families that are bringing children home! Each foster/adoptive family would benefit from having several families walk with them, not only during the initial transition of adding a child to their family, but for years to come! Wrap Around Families are vital in equipping those who foster and/or adopt children.

Orphans' Embrace longs for each child who "ages out" of the Foster Care System to have a Transition Sponsor. As a Transition Sponsor you will guide a child as they transition from teenager to young adult.

Their fundraiser kick-off is this Sunday, August 25th.
