Support Foster & Adopt

As the church, we all have different roles to play in caring for vulnerable children. Many of our support programs are completely run by volunteers. Would you consider committing to serving fostering and adoptive families in one of these ways?

Serve Foster & Adopt Families at Your Campus

As our Foster & Adopt ministry grows across our campuses, we are grateful for the opportunities God has provided to care for vulnerable children. We desire to engage with Foster & Adopt families personally and regularly throughout their journey. Each campus has a Foster & Adopt Champion that connects with families and coordinates support when they need it most.

You could join them by providing meals, shopping for new additions, praying for a  Foster & Adopt family, or offering babysitting. Some members use their specialized skills or hobbies to provide free haircuts, birthday cakes, legal advice, freezer meals, photography, and much more.  If you are interested in serving on this team, let us know through the link below!

Advocating as a

Guardian ad litem

In advocating for an abused or neglected child, a guardian ad litem gives a child a voice and a chance for a better life. Serving as a Guardian ad litem can have a tremendous impact on a child’s life, but it also requires an investment of time and energy. We want to come alongside our members who are interested in or currently serving as a Guardian ad litem to offer support, encouragement, and community.  To find out more, scroll down and let us know of your interest.

Volunteer with Families Count

Families Count

Families Count is a seven-week, biblically based parent education program that is designed to meet the standards for state-approved parent education programs. Through Families Count, members at Grace Church are positioned to meet, mentor, and care for biological parents who are working to fulfill a court-mandated plan for reunification or parents whom the court deems at-risk for a court-ordered disruption. Our goal is to prayerfully provide support and guidance and to show mercy to parents who either are at risk of being separated or have already been separated from their children. Grace members serve Families Count participants as mentors for the full seven weeks by providing transportation if necessary and by providing meals for each class.

Foster & Adopt

Resource Center

We provide various necessary items to adoptive, foster care, and kinship care families. The Resource Center is staffed entirely by volunteers and we would love to have you join our team!

We are in need of dedicated people to help receive, sort, and organize donations (during and outside of operating hours) and to help distribute items to families who come to shop.

What is Families Count?

Families Count is a seven-week, biblically based parenting class for parents who are working to fulfill a court-mandated plan for reunification or parents whoM the court deems at-risk for a court-ordered disruption.

What does the commitment look like for mentors?

We ask mentors to attend the first and last weeks of the class. We also ask mentors to meet with their mentee at least once a week face-to-face to encourage them and discuss the class material. Our goal is that, ultimately, this short-term mentorship will develop into a long-term friendship of learning and growing in community together.

Who can be a mentor?

Mentors must be covenant members of Grace Church and have the capacity to meet with their mentee at least once a week, face-to-face, for seven consecutive weeks.

Are there any other ways to serve with Families Count?

Yes! Your community group can provide a meal for the class, or if you speak Spanish, we may need your help translating during class every week. Click “Let Us Know” below and tell us which of these opportunities you’re interested in.

Am I financially responsible for my mentee?

No, we ask that you do not provide any financial support to your mentee whatsoever.

Is there any training required for mentors?

Yes, mentors must attend one night of training for two hours, which will be announced before the class. Mentors are also required to pass a background check.
