That is what we participated in this past Sunday. What does that mean? It means as a church family, we are willing to "stand up" for vulnerable children in our community and state. In South Carolina, there are almost 4,000 children in foster care. In the Lowcountry region, there are over 700 children in foster care. In South Carolina, 1400 are legally free or in the process of being legally free for adoption.
As a church, what can we do?
We can pray for the children in our state and how we can love and care for them.
We can ask questions about what it means to be a foster parent.
We can find out more about what it means to adopt a child or a sibling group.
The first step, on December 13 at 5:00 PM, there will be a meeting in the Clarke Room that will answer all these questions and more. If you can not attend the meeting, no worries, just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I love that SBC is committed to being champions of children.
