FAMILIES OF HOPE
Believing that the solution to the orphan crisis is the local church, a group of LBC members began working to form a ministry dedicated to encouraging and praying for and offering training events and resources to families who are adopting or fostering children.
Since Families of Hope began in 2015, they have helped over 250 children and the families taking care of them. Through the Resource Closet located on the campus of LBC, Families of Hope offers clothes, diapers and other items depending on what has been donated. Each family that comes to the Resource Closet is also given an age appropriate Bible or devotional book.
Volunteers are needed to work at the Resource Closet to receive donations, sort and organize donations and assist families who are coming to pick up items they need. The ministry is also in need of those who could offer tutoring to children, especially in high school math.
If you are currently adopting or fostering children, please let us know by contacting the Missions Office at 803.996.8836 or firstname.lastname@example.org. We would like to partner with you and serve your family.
