Calvary Belmar is one of the most recent Foster Adoption Friendly Churches certified by Project 1.27. By developing their foster and adoption ministry and having staff attend Trauma Informed Church Training, Calvary Belmar has created an environment where:
The process began with phone calls, email exchanges and completing the More Than Enough survey. The survey assisted Calvary Belmar’s committee in developing next steps they could take in order to achieve their ministry goals. Here’s information shared by Calvary Belmar about their ministry:
“Although the healing of the children in foster care is our greatest priority, the need for prayer is not limited to the children. There are biological and foster families, caseworkers, advocates and the many volunteers and other professionals involved in the welfare of each child. But it can be difficult to know the many needs of so many people.”
Calvary Belmar challenged the congregation to pray for those in the Foster Care system using created by the Christian Alliance For Orphans.
Calvary Belmar now has a full foster care and adoption ministry which advocates for children in foster care, provides safe and stable foster and adoptive homes for children in crisis, and provides support for the foster and adoptive families.
Join Calvary Belmar in providing support and prayer along with safe and stable foster homes for our most vulnerable children. Caring for vulnerable children can be part of every church culture. Contact Project 1.27 for more information about developing your church foster care and adoption ministry.
