Do you feel a calling to help God’s children in need but you just don’t know where to start? If so, you have just found the right community.
Welcome to CHOSEN! We are a community seeking to serve foster and adoptive children along with their families. We are dedicated to bridging lasting relationships between our foster/adoptive families and those who feel a calling to be of service to these children through their time, talents or treasures.
In addition CHOSEN offers support and resources to address a very large unmet need in our community which is to provide safe, loving families for children in foster care or needing adoption. CHOSEN encourages families who are currently or are hoping to be directly involved in caring for foster children or children who have been adopted by having gatherings to discuss issues related to foster care and adoption.
If you would like more information on how to get involved with CHOSEN or to learn more about our gatherings, please contact email@example.com
CHOSEN has teamed up with Child S.H.A.R.E in their mission to offer Support, Hope, Advocacy, Resources and Encouragement. There are many valuable opportunities to be involved through meaningful acts of service. Here are just a few ways you or your LifeGroup can connect.
Give a basket to a foster family upon receiving a child in their home. Donate items such as board games, ice cream gift certificates or a night a bowling for the whole family as they welcome a child in need. Families with younger children are often need of gently used toys, baby carriers and clothing.
Join us in giving families a well deserved night off. Parents are invited to drop off their children ages 0-16 to enjoy a little time to themselves and refill their cup. You will be given the opportunity to work directly with CHOSEN children alongside the Fellowship Kids Team. We will offer a scrumptious dinner and fun activities for the children.
Gather around families and their CHOSEN children to offer with help with some of their everyday needs which may including meals, homework help, mentoring and monitored family visitations
What talent or service do have to offer a child in need? Here are just a few examples.
Are you currently fostering or adopting or wanting to learn more? We want to join you alongside your journey. We hold semiannual informational events to provide you with assistance in the foster and adopting process along with education meetings to support you in needs and challenges.
