We are called to share our faith and resources in conformance to our mission statement of our church:
"to serve the human needs of others; and to share our faith and resources as God's family."
HOLY SPIRIT FOSTER CARE/ADOPTIVE MINISTRY has joined churches throughout Michigan to help Foster/Adoptive families. We are called to serve the varied human needs of children in the foster-care system as we are able. We are open to foster children of all ages and realize that as Jesus said in Matt. 18:2-5 "He called a child over, placed it in their midst and said . . . Whoever receives one child such as this in my name receives me."
We encourage parishioners to participate in helping those in need from providing cakes for foster-care parties, to mentoring or if able to give heart and home for the care of a foster child, or foster to adopt if possible. We assist families to navigate the state system for this end. Our ministry is opened to being educated in understanding the lacks of foster children and helping initiate the possibilities to fill their needs.
Maureen Boyd is the Coordinator for Foster Care/Adoptive Ministry.
