Equipping the church to defend the cause of the fatherless.
In Psalm 68, God calls himself a father to the fatherless, and in Galatians 4, God says we have been adopted as his own kids. That’s what the gospel is all about, and that's what drives us. The early church was known for taking care of women and vulnerable children, and we believe God is calling us to do that in a big way.
Indiana is facing one of the largest foster care crises in America. More children are going into foster care than ever before without enough families to care for them. Many times the families who do step up need help with some of their basic needs.
The TPCC Foster & Adoption Ministry reflects God’s heart for his people as seen in Isaiah 1:17.
Learn to do good. Seek justice. Help the oppressed. Defend the cause of orphans. Fight for the rights of widows. (Isaiah 1:17, NLT)
Here are just a few of the ways you can get involved:
Foster Care & Adoption
Someone from our team would love to talk with you about getting started in foster care or understanding the paths to adoption. Join us for a foster and adoption information night on December 11! The event is free to attend, and registration is required.
Joining a care community is a great way for you to take a stand even if you can't open your home to a child right now. Care communities come around foster families to offer emotional, spiritual, prayer, physical, and financial support that will sustain them as they care for vulnerable children. Join us at an upcoming orientation to learn more!
Care for DCS workers by donating items, cleaning toys, writing notes of encouragement and gratitude, and so much more. Our team would love to get you plugged into the right opportunity—fill out the Serve DCS form, and we'll be in touch! Better yet, check out available opportunities with Hands of Hope.
