May is National Foster Care Month

As Christ-followers, we’re called to “look after orphans their distress” (James 1:27) and to help “the least of these” (Matthew 25:40). WL's foster/adoption ministry, "Room At The Table" is inviting you to participate in any of these ways to showcase God's love to people coming alongside foster children.

  • Give to the CARE FUND to help with two projects to bless those ministering to foster children:
    1. a gift basket for WL families currently fostering
    2. a snack or lunch meal for the Kosciusko County Department of Child Services that oversees foster placements.
  • creating a list of WL families who are currently fostering (or waiting on foster placements). Go to the home page of the WL web page and click on "Share Your Story." After providing the parent's name and contact info, we're asking foster parents to list only the gender and ages of their foster children.
  • Donation to WL'S Foster Care Closet.

Donations in MAY to WL's Foster Care Closet

Even though our church is currently closed to visitors, we're continuing to assist area foster families with clothing, equipment, and other supplies needed to help the children in their care. Because of the current restrictions, we're only accepting new clothing which is seriously limiting the help we're able to give theses families. As we celebrate National Foster Care Month (May), please consider how you can bless our closet. Spring/summer clothing in all sizes is needed and may be ordered online and delivered directly to the church or, if you prefer, it can be dropped off between the double doors at the main entrance to the church on weekdays between 9:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. Several stores offer free delivery. We continue to give out lots of diapers! Any size is welcomed but especially sizes 3, 4, and 5. Body wash is needed for older kids. Thanks for your generosity and encouragement to area foster homes.
