Join us next Wednesday, Nov 20, for Midweek Serve, where we will delve deeper into  the realities of orphans around the world and foster kids here in Charlotte, and take part in tangible expressions of love and support to those providing care.   Everyone is encouraged to participate! Click  here  for details and to sign up for childcare for kids 2 and under.

This past Sunday, we shared the great need locally for foster families to help care for the 526 children currently in Mecklenburg County foster care. 

If you have more questions about foster care or the journey families walk through, watch the full length interview from Sunday, available online only.
