As disciples of Christ, we have been given a
mandate to serve and support the most vulnerable in our community. When James
stated that “true religion” is to care for widows and orphans, he wasn’t giving
us an exhaustive list, but an indicative one. The people of God are to care for
those who cannot care for themselves and be a voice for the one who has no
voice. Here at Brookwood, we have several families who have answered this call
by serving as foster families for children displaced from their homes due to
maltreatment. This work is very challenging and cannot be successfully
sustained without consistent support from the church as a whole. The level of
sacrifice and disruption experienced by these families goes largely unnoticed,
but is essential to the safety and restoration of a wounded child. While not
everyone is called to foster, everyone is called to help those who do.
Mission: to facilitate the protection, empowerment, and restoration of children and families through steadfast prayer and strategic activity.
Vision: A thriving and well-supported foster care community in our church and the surrounding area.
