The Chapel, in Libertyville,believes that God cares deeply about children in need of families. He calls believers to help care for these children in James 1:27a: “Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress” (NIV).
Today this need is very real, just as it was in James’ day. Make plans to attend their Open Hearts, Open Homes conference and discover how God might be calling you to look after children in need!
The cost is $20 and includes a light breakfast, coffee, a catered lunch, a variety of breakout sessions, resources, networking opportunities, DCFS training hours, and a keynote presentation by Jeff Griffin, co-senior pastor of The Chapel and adoptive parent. The conference will take place on Saturday, April 17, 2010 from 8:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. at their Libertyville Campus: 1200 American Way, Libertyville, IL 60048.
