Four Ways To Answer The Call
Call on God in Prayer
Be part of an organized prayer group meeting regularly to pray for foster and adoptive families and the Call to Care ministry. There will be designated times of prayer as families bring children into their home and attend important meetings and court dates. This team will also work on special projects to show love and support to Autauga County Department of Human Resources and partnering organziations. Team Leader: Kim Kervin
Acts of Service
Join a care community that supports and serves foster, adoptive and kinship placement families. Each care community is linked to a specific family. This community will serve families in a variety of ways such as weekly meals, help with transporting a child to medical appointments or activities, or by providing clothing and means of encouragement. Team Leader: Pam Hunter
Become a licensed foster, adoptive or respite home through a designated agency that First Baptist Prattville helps organize and facilitate. The first training will begin in August 2021 and will be held on our campus. A small group will also launch in the summer to help families prepare for training. Team Leader: Ashli Gordon
Extend Help Through Mentoring
Be a mentor to foster and adoptive families by providing needed wisdom, encouragement and support. Even if you have never foster or adopted a child, you may have the encouragement a family needs. Team Leader: Ann Smith
