Careportal is live in Glynn County connecting our Hope 1312 Collective churches to actual needs of children and families. Since our launch just 6 weeks ago we collectively have supported the stories of 10 children and had an economic impact of over $2,500.
Two of our Hope 1312 Collective churches, Rhema and St Simons Community have re-decorated the DFCS visitation spaces making them more therapeutic and inviting to families and children who are required to spend supervised time together in hopes of reunification, a tangible display that they are not alone and God is with them as the next chapter of their story unfolds.
We are working to establish care communities around our local foster families and seeking to provide monthly respite at our partner churches. This past month a faithful foster family was able to have a quiet date night after welcoming a sibling set of three into their family thanks to one of our respite events. We would love for your small group or family to get plugged in by providing a weekly meal or transportation.
This quarter our pop-up Heart Gallery exhibits were created by H2O Designs and shipped to our strategic church partners across the state for adoption ministry events. Both Clement Arts in Columbus and Perimeter Church in Atlanta now have a pop up exhibit to share the stories and raise awareness of the most in need children in the regional area waiting for their forever family. Enter their stories by visiting our online gallery and selecting a child to pray for by name.
Year 2 of Royal Family Kids Camp is gearing up as we are accepting applications for staff and campers. Our community vision casting event was full of stories of what God did last year through camp and prayers for what is to come.
This weekend we will launch at our two new Hope 1312 Collective churches, Wesley UMC at Frederica and 1st Baptist Brunswick. We are overwhelmed by the work of unity that God is doing among HIs body for the greater good of those He has entrusted to our care.
We are beyond grateful that God is answering our prayer to establish the work of our hands and cannot wait to continue to tell you the story of all He has done. If you want to be a part of mission contact us or donate today!
