Parents of Hope Grief Support

Parents of Hope is a ministry by parents and for parents who have suffered the loss of a child at any age. Meeting the first and third Tuesdays of every month, this group supplies mutual understanding, support, hope, and compassion. "We're there...and we care!" is the banner this ministry holds up for parents who need the comfort and encouragement of other parents who have known the agony of losing a child.

Love Because

Foster and Adoptive Parents Support Group

Meets the 3rd Wednesday of every Month at 7:00pm, Cornerstone Parlor.

Love Because is a community of families who have embraced the biblical call to care for orphans by bringing these children into their homes to love, care for and nurture. For many, varied reasons children sometimes are in situations that take them out of their own family, perhaps for just awhile. There are special families that have answered the call to open their homes and hearts.

Our mission is to connect families who are impacted by foster care and adoption for the purpose of fellowship, encouragement, support and growth.

Has your family offered foster care and/or adoption? Do you desire a community of like-minded families where you can gain support, inspiration and fellowship?

This group has been founded by families that have adopted a child or are currently offering foster care. Experience has taught them that this is not an easy undertaking and filled with very unique challenges-birth parents, court systems, behavior issues, siblings-just to name a few.
