Orphan Ministry Alliance of West Michigan invites you to join us in our Orphan Sunday 2015 Initiative!
Our gift is hospitality... As Foster and Adoptive parents, we provide a safe place to heal, to rest. We love unconditionally. We give sacrificially of our time and resources. Sadly, we are not enough, the need is too great. Many more children are scared and at risk. You can make an eternal difference—Your voice and passion can bring change, awareness, new hope and new homes.
On Orphan Sunday, Christians stand for the orphan. We are a people called to defend the fatherless…to care for the child that has no family…to visit orphans in their distress. Each event is locally-led. Sermons and small groups to shared meals and youth activities—each rousing believers with God’s call to care for the orphan, and what we can do in response. Orphan Sunday is your opportunity to rouse church, community and friends to God’s call to care for the orphan.
Encourage your church to respond on Orphan Sunday. Step out in faith, and find out more. You can be the catalyst. You can fan the flame. We’ll show you how. Contact us for more information!! wendycheek1@ gmail.com (remove spaces)
Fostering Together: Whether new to fostering, or a long-time veteran, each child we care for presents new challenges to our family and new opportunities to reach out to their family. Together we strengthen our serve and our families by walking in community. Sharing with others who have been there can offer encouragement, understanding, support and advice, and desire to learn from other’s experiences in a positive environment. Join the Fostering Together group the 2nd Tuesday of each month, 6:30-8:30pm at Ridge Point Church- Door E, 304 104th Ave, Holland. RSVP required for childcare (provided free of charge).
NEW! Parenting TEENS Together: Parenting teens can be a challenge even in the best situations. Throw in various levels of disfunction, insecurity, trauma and loss related to their birth family, and it’s no wonder these years are so difficult for our kids. It’s important to sharing our stories, dreams, fears and ideas with other parents that understand how past trauma and loss affect our teens. As parents, we are stronger in community. We are stronger when we can safely express our fears and frustrations without fear of judgement. We are stronger when we can encourage, support, and hold each other accountable to our faith and calling to love these kids. Join the Parenting TEENS Together group the 2nd Tuesday of each month, 6:30-8:30pm at Ridge Point Church- Door E, 304 104th Ave, Holland. RSVP required for childcare (provided free of charge).
PLAYGROUPS: Sometimes we all need a change of scenery, and some socialization with our peers -- that’s true whether we are parents or young children! The Mosaic Play Group provides parents and children opportunities to get out of the house, play in new spaces to stimulate your child’s mind in new ways, socialize with other children, and give parents a chance for adult conversation. Locations vary by season. Watch Facebook or sign up for a reminder email for locations.
