ADOPTION & FOSTER CARE

Monthly Community Meetings

First Sunday of Each Month  |  4:00 - 5:30 PM  |  Child Care Provided

We invite GracePoint attendees who are members of the adoption triad (birth families, adoptees, and adoptive families who have started the adoption process or have already adopted) as well as any foster families to our meetings! 

An Environment for Building Faith & Sharing Experiences

Our Monthly Community Meeting is aimed to deepen our relationships with each other, continue to educate ourselves on a variety of adoption and foster care topics, seek a better understanding of adoption through the lens of our Christian faith, and petition the Lord together with our prayer requests.

We aim to do this through ice breakers and fun group activities, facilitated discussions (ex: open-ended questions, articles, books, video clips) and guest speakers (adoptees, birth families, agencies, subject matter experts, support group resources, etc.).

Discussion Topics: Trauma informed care, Talking about adoption with your bio & adoptive children, adoption & foster care related books and resources, transracial adoption, navigating birth family relationships, honoring children's adoption stories and family histories
