LOVE IN ACTION Event (New Location)

May is National Foster Care month and time for our annual Love In Action foster care focused event!

With over 20,000 kids in the system, NY has some of the biggest numbers in the country!  We at JFO are on a mission to change that by awakening the Church here in NY to the  biblical mandate in James 1:27 to care for orphans.  Kids in foster care are a type of orphan – they are in need of a family temporarily, or sometimes permanently.

We want to see the Church engaged, equipped, and mobilized towards foster care and adoption.  This isn’t a ministry for a few, it’s the Gospel in action.  We cannot read the Scriptures and not see God’s heart for the oppressed, the poor, the helpless, – the orphan.  After all, God adopted us.  He’s given us the spirit of adoption and He calls us sons and daughters.  This is adoption theology.

It’s time the Church establishes a culture of orphan care where everyone has a part to play.

To learn more, join us on Friday, May 22, 2015 from 9am to 1pm for our Love In Action event at Victory Christian Church 1312 Central Ave., Albany, NY 12205.  Our keynote speaker will be Jason Johnson, husband, adoptive/foster dad, pastor to pastors, blogger, and Director of Church Engagement for Arrow Foundation of Houston, TX.  This is a free event which includes brunch but attendees must register by either emailing sandraflachjfo@gmail.com, calling 518-779-2279 or clicking on “Events” on this site and then clicking on “Love In Action”.
