Each week as we study Amos we have an opportunity to put what we are learning into action in cooperation with some of our Off the Mountaintop partnerships. This week we have a chance to W.RA.P. foster and adoptive families with care as we:
Wrestle in Prayer for the parents and children,
provide Respite (babysitting for an evening),
provide Acts of Service (taking meals, mowing grass, etc.)
and surround them with the Promises of God (writing encouraging cards).
That's so much better than a Chicken Caesar Wrap!
Here’s how you can practice justice: Attend a W.R.A.P. meeting (light lunch provided) in the Atrium immediately following the second service this Sunday, October 19 to hear how you can support foster and adoptive families and help bring a flood of justice.
We will W.R.A.P. families in partnership with The Forgotten Initiative and Lifeline Children’s Services.
The Forgotten Initiative is a ministry which mobilizes people to serve, mentor, and support the foster care community. One of the ongoing ways Mountaintop partners with this ministry is by packing Journey bags which are backpacks given to foster parents when a child is placed in their home. These backpacks are filled with age-appropriate supplies for the children.
Lifeline Children’s Services offers complete adoption services to birthparents, including counseling, housing, medical care, legal services, and the assurance that the baby will be placed with a Christian family. For prospective adoptive families, they offer a complete range of professional services related to adopting a child. Lifeline seeks to make an investment in the lives of children, mothers in the wake of crisis, families wanting the blessing of a child, and orphans around the globe needing a home in which they can see and hear the Gospel.
