Why Adoption & Foster Care?
At Sojourn Midtown, we believe that foster care and adoption is a way that God gives families to vulnerable children who need to experience the security of a loving home and ultimately the love of Christ. We are a church that is about bringing children into our homes, because we are fueled by the truth that God has accomplished this for us through the death of His Son on the cross. We foster and adopt because we ourselves have been adopted into the family of God. It is out of this truth and experience that we reach out to others and guide them towards the never changing, always and forever Father God.
There are multiple opportunities for the church to engage in child and family welfare from upstream prevention, to midstream intervention, and downstream restoration. Our members are a diverse group of individuals with unique gifts, passions, resources, experiences and perspectives. We value our differences and bring them together for the common purpose of empowering and strengthening families across this continuum.
"Learn to do right; seek justice. Defend the oppressed. Take up the cause of the fatherless; plead the case of the widow."
The Adoption & Foster Care Ministry at Sojourn Church Midtown exists to: provide awareness, education, and support for members engaged in the adoption and fostering of vulnerable children.
At Sojourn Church Midtown, some of us are going to bring children into our homes and others will find ways to serve and support those who do so.
