We want to invite you to this month's Vulnerable Children's Ministry Community Gathering for Adoptive, Foster, and Safe Families. Wednesday, October 23, 2013
The focus of October's meeting will be on providing our families with resources in their surrounding communities. This is a great opportunity to learn more about the types of services that are available to you, your children, the children you serve, and the families that you partner with. We want to strongly encourage you to invite the families that you partner with (i.e. placing families through Safe Families, foster parents, D.C.F.S. clients, etc.) so that they can be made aware of the services that Willow offers and the services of other agencies.
The following agencies will be available on this night: Cherry Hill Counseling Center, Child and Family Connections, D.C.F.S. training, Life Books, and Metropolitan Family Services. We have a few more agencies we are hoping can join us as well. Furthermore, we will be giving tours of the Willow Creek Care Center and will be reviewing the types of services the Care Center can offer. The Willow Creek Care Center will also be a great resource to learn about for the social service agencies who are able to attend.
Here is a picture of how the evening will go:
- 5:30pm-7pm - Meet in the Atrium for sharing a meal. If you are facing the Atrium from the main lobby entrance, we will be off to the right-hand side (your right) in the little area that is close to/underneath the stairs that lead up to the lounge area by the Seeds bookstore. There will be signs and/or table cards that will have our ministry name on them, so you can also look for those.
- 7pm-7:30pm - Worship in the Lakeside Auditorium
- 7:30pm-8:30pm - Meet in Hospitality Room in the Care Center for the remainder of the evening. You can get to the Hospitality room by following the hallway that links the Atrium to the Care Center. Go up the stairs that are in that hallway and that will lead you right into the room. We will have signs and/or have someone in the Link that can direct you to the hospitality room.
Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know if you will be joining us for the program portion of the evening. Also, if you would like to sit with us during worship or meet with us before the program, please meet us in the Atrium prior to worship. We look forward to seeing you there!
