Then Jesus said to them, “Whoever welcomes this little child of mine welcomes me; and whoever welcomes me welcomes the one who sent me.  For it is the one who is least among you all who is the greatest. 
Luke 9:48  

What is Embrace? 
Embrace is a ministry within Spring Creek Church that promotes and encourages the support of families that have foster, adopted or children with special needs.
Embrace has two goals:
1. Support these families. 
Through the creation of “Care Communities”, these families will receive prayer and practical support families.  The practical support can include things like 1 meal per week, facilitating the acquisition of needed but unaffordable items, running errands, housework, yard work, encouraging the children to be discipled by involvement in our children and student ministry programs, and providing child care for date nights (following all church child care guidelines).      
2. Create awareness about parenting foster/adopted/special needs children. 
Provide information to the congregation about each of these parenting situations - what it’s like for the children and the parents.  Specific to fostering and adoption, provide information on how those systems work, how a person becomes a foster or adoptive parent, and honest discussion of the highs and lows of being such a parent.   
Awareness Event (approximately 75 minutes) This is an event to guage the interest of Spring Creek members in this new ministry.  They will learn about the need, how the system works, how they can participate, and hear personal experiences from parents of fostered/adopted/special needs children.

Volunteer Orientation Training (approximately 75 minutes) This is for those volunteers who are interested in being a part of the Embrace Ministry.  This training will be offered several times a year and is required for all who want to be a part of Embrace.
Our next Volunteer Orientation Event is Sunday, March 13 following the 10:30am service 
(Approx 12pm)

12pm in the Loft Cafe
