LAKE POINTE

ADOPTION & FOSTER CARE

Our ministry vision is twofold: building families through the adoption miracle and showing God’s love to the world’s orphans. Through our adoption focus, we desire to be a catalyst for those whom God is showing adoption as a path for them to build their families. We also seek to build up our community of adoptive families through fellowship activities. Finally, our hope is to reach out to the unchurched through the adoption message, as a parallel story to our own salvation.

WE ARE HERE TO HELP

WHAT YOU WILL FIND

^

Encouragement

All of our families have a passion to support and encourage other families through sharing their adoption and foster care stories, prayer and mentorship. As families have questions, need support or even need someone that has been there before them, we try to offer any encouragement we can along the journey.

^

Resources

There is a lot of information available on adoption, foster care and all of the different ways that families can be involved in this process. We want to help others navigate through this process and use the experiences of others to provide valuable resources. We can also provide assistance in different ways to fund an adoption.

^

Support

Having a support team through this process is invaluable. We offer support to families in the way of mentoring, support groups and other events and classes offered throughout the year. This allows adoption families to support each other as well as encourage other families that are considering or just beginning the process of adoption and/or foster care.

MINISTRY

FOCUS

Our ministry began as a volunteer ministry in 2005 with four families who had a heart to serve through adoption and orphan service. The ministry has now grown significantly as families have been called to live out James 1:27, and we have had the great privilege of working with many Lake Pointe families and other families in our community who are tied together through the common threads of adoption, foster care and serving orphans.
