Volunteer Training

Tuesday, November 19, 2019, 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Are you interested in serving within our Every Child foster care/adoption ministry and are at least 18 years old? Being a volunteer provides tangible ways of coming alongside foster and adoptive families who benefit from strong support systems. Wrap around support may include, but is not limited to, meal preparation, prayer support, childcare, and light housework/odd jobs. This is a good way for individual, families, or small groups to get involved. Join us for our next volunteer training on Tuesday, November 19 from 6-9pm in the Fireside Room. This training is required for those interested in providing wrap around support for foster families. Light snacks and refreshments will be provided.
