Right now, over 2,000 children and youth in Arizona foster care are waiting for adoptive families. Arizona also has more than 4,000 churches and God has given clear commands for Christians to take care of His orphan children. So if the command is clear and the need is apparent, why are these kids still waiting? Even if you're not called to adopt, we can all do something!
Join Focus on the Family and Arizona 1.27, as well as church and adoption leaders from around the area on Saturday, February 24, 2018 at Heights Church in Prescott. You'll hear more about the kids who are waiting, the process of foster care and adoption and ways you can be involved in supporting adoptive and foster families. In addition, representatives will be on site to answer questions and help you get started.
Attend this area-wide event and explore what the Lord may be asking you to do. Together the body of Christ can ensure that no children in Arizona are waiting for someone to call mom or dad.
Focus on the Family is a donor-supported Christian ministry committed to helping families thrive. We believe that every child deserves to know the love of a forever family.
Do I need to be there right at 10:00am or is this a come and go type event?
This is NOT a come and go type of event. Starting right at 10:00am, we'll have several speakers sharing their experiences with adoption from foster care and at 12:00 you'll have the opportunity to speak with adoption agencies and ministry leaders.
Is there childcare?
Yes! The church will have child care for children birth through first grade. Older dhildren are welcome at the event but please note that our speakers are intentionally honest about the difficult situations and circumstances that kids in foster care face. The content may not be suitable for kids under 13.
Is lunch provided?
Yes, lunch is provided at no cost to attendees.
