New support group forming!


The Vulnerable Children's Ministry at Willow Creek, and Replanted ministry at Church of the Resurrection are pleased to announce that a new support group for adoptive, foster and Safe Families host parents is being formed.

Our support groups are safe places for families to share their journeys with one another. We desire for these groups to be a place of encouragement and prayer for families as they care for children. With that as the heart of our ministry, we ask that families seek to commit to these support groups, to intentionally plan for these monthly meetings in order to create relationship and community with other families. We believe that as families and children grow in relationship, that these groups can become a place of deep trust and encouragement for all involved.

When: Beginning October 20th and then monthly - every 3rd Thursday of the month from 6:15-8:15pm. (Oct 2016-May 2017, with no meeting in Dec.)

Where: A home in South Barrington, IL

Childcare: Childcare is provided by trained volunteers who understand the special needs of kids who have experienced loss and trauma.

Dinner: Dinner will be provided for parents by volunteers.  Please have your kids fed before you come.

Curriculum: The group will follow a curriculum designed specifically for adoptive and foster parents.
Registration is limited, so register now! (The So. Barrington group is currently listed as Elgin/Bolingbrook.  Click that selection to register for So.Barrington)
