Chosen (Foster & Adoption)

chosen

Ephesians 1:4-6

“Just as He has chosen us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love, having predestined us to adoption as children by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will, to the praise of the glory of His grace, by which He made us accepted in the Beloved.”

 

Vision and Mission

Loving God by reaching the orphan.
Growing Together through discipleship and training.
Serving Others by repairing the hearts of children.

The ministry’s heart is that every child and family that we com in contact with would know and understand the heart of God for them.  We pray they will understand the heart of God for them.  We pray they will understand that from the beginning of time they were chosen, loved, and accepted by God as well as theLighthouse Family.

 

How to get involved

Foster Care – A temporary, loving, and supportive home in which a child’s emotional, physical, and spiritual needs can be met until they are reunited with their biological family or placed into an adoptive home.
Adoption – A family that embraces children through Christ’s love by accepting and providing each child with a permanent and forever family.
Respite Care – Providing temporary care for foster children so that foster families can have some personal time alone.  Respite care enables foster families to take vacations, a day off, or handle unforeseen emergency situations.
