No One Can Do Everything, but Everyone Should Do Something
In last week’s sermon, Mobilization Pastor Garry Abbott challenged us:
“If you can care about the need around you, do it.”
This leads to the question: What can you do to meet the needs you see around you?
There are vulnerable children all over the world and right here in the U.S.—children in need of someone to open their home to them, of someone to provide for them, of someone to welcome them into a family.
If you missed last week’s Sponsor / Foster / Adopt Expo, we’re doing it again this week and hope you’ll stop by! (Just head to your campus lobby after the worship service.) It’s a great opportunity to collect information about whatever God might be calling you to do to act on behalf of the most vulnerable.

Most vulnerable or orphaned children have some family who love them and want to provide for them. For these children, partnering with the family to stabilize their environment is a huge blessing. A small, monthly donation gives opportunities for the world’s poorest children, providing for their physical, educational, medical, and spiritual needs.
When children are in crisis, foster care can become a form of relief by providing temporary placement of children into surrogate families. Foster parents and families provide safe, nurturing, stable environments, in the hopes that these children will one day be reunited with their families.
As God's adopted sons and daughters, we believe we're invited to be a part of His redeeming work for the most vulnerable. We do this through domestic adoption (the permanent placement of an infant or child born in the U.S.) and international adoption (the permanent placement of an infant or child born in another country).
There is no burden to do all of these things, and you’re not committing to anything by visiting the Expo. Our hope is that you will be encouraged that we can all do something. The need for people to care for vulnerable children is huge, and when we make the decision to act on God’s call—whatever that may be—anything is possible.
