Focused Fellowship

  "And let us consider how we can spur one another on towards love and good deeds."  Hebrews 10:24      

Focused Fellowship exists to encourage ladies that are anywhere in the process of fostering and/or adopting.  Whether you are in the 'considering' stage or in the midst of parenting a foster or adoptive child you are welcome to join us as we take time to consider how to serve the Lord as we walk through our days, have a devotion, take time to pray for each other and share practical ideas to reach out to our children.  

We meet the third Monday of each month so please join us!

Monday, March 18, 2013  at 7:00pm.

We meet at the home of Monica at 1111 W Burnside Dr., Peoria. 

If you have any questions please contact Amy at 251-7250.  

Feel free to bring a friend.  If you are inclined you may bring a snack to share.  There is no need to RSVP, we don't want you to ever feel that you can't decide at the last moment to join us.

Parenting Kids from Hard Places classes rescheduled

Every child has their moments of frustration. For some of our kids who have been through trauma, there may be times of unconsolable anger or disconnect that you just know are not the norm. We have been at our wit's end not knowing how to help and secretly (or not so secretly) wondering if we are making things worse for our kids. We would love for you to join us on our journey as we learn and grow and begin to see healing and connectedness. 

We have reschedule the next PKHP class for March 19-June 4. We will meet every Tuesday 7-9pm at 2261 Hollands Grove Rd, Washington IL 61571. 

DIRECTIONS: Rt. 24 just west of the 24/buisness 24 split in Washington. Turn NORTH on Hollands Grove or Grange Road, (Faith Church is between these two roads, Hollands Grove runs around behind the church. If you turn on Grange take a RIGHT onto Holland Grove). 2261 is on the LEFT (north) side. There are 3 mail boxes together. You cannot see their house from the road. Go past the first house and you'll drive through a few trees then you can drive straight into their driveway.
