We are excited to partner with Alabama Baptist Children’s Home as we introduce our Orphan Care Ministry. We believe that the Bible is the true and living Word of God and that it teaches us about God's love for orphans. We believe that all Christians are called to love and care for orphans. While that may not mean adopting a child or fostering one for your family, there are multiple ways in which we aim to love orphans and widows within our church body.
Wednesdays @ 6pm-9pm

Our goal as a church is to have Growth Groups that would WRAP around adoptive and foster care families.

Promises of God
Orphan care is hard. Families who are faithfully loving children who've undergone trauma need reminders from the Word of God to exhort them to continued faithfulness.
