    September Focused Fellowship

Monday, September 15, 2014


Where:  Home of Monica, 1111 W. Burnside Dr., Peoria

No need to RSVP, come as you are.  Bring a friend if you would like or a small snack to share.

Focused Fellowship is for ladies that are anywhere in the process of fostering and/or adopting.  We meet monthly, on the third Monday at 7pm.  We have a devotion, a time of prayer for our families, and a time of sharing how the Lord is working in our families.  It is a wonderful evening to network with other like-minded ladies on the topic of orphan care.

Note: If there ever is a need to change locations we will post that ASAP on this blog and the Focused Fellowship Facebook page.

Focused Fellowship is a ministry arm of Open Hearts, Open Homes Orphan Ministry and desires to point women to the Lord as they follow Him in caring for children.  You do not have to be a member of a Bethany church to attend.

We hope to see you there!

Fall Orphan Care Bible Study Beginning Soon

Open Hearts, Open Homes Orphan Care Ministry will host again this fall the Orphan Care Bible Study. This study is for anyone interested in learning what the Bible says about caring for the disenfranchised. Foster parenting or adoption do not have to be in your future to be a part of this study, just a desire to know what God's Word says about caring for the orphan. The text for the study consists of Scripture and A Passion for the Fatherlesswritten by Daniel Bennett (Pastor of Bethany Community Church).

During the study we will look at God's heart for the orphan and some things to consider when looking at orphan care.

For those with a heart to foster and/or adopt this is the first step in partnering with the Open Hearts, Open Homes Orphan Care Ministry.
