What if rather than waiting for individuals affected by foster care to come to our church, we gathered a group of people to become the church for this community? The goal for this Move Out opportunity is centered around Foster Care initiatives, where people who love Jesus support vulnerable families to help children in care. Additionally, providing parents with a safe and supportive environment to lean on physically, relationally and spiritually. We want to host exciting events where we can bring hope to the hurting, show that the love of God can change your life and that we as the body of Christ can help people experience joy, healing, and unconditional love through 127! WANT TO SERVE WITH US? We are looking for volunteers with the following characteristics: Open and accepting of people; Able to maintain confidentiality; Willingness to participate in group training; Patience, generosity, and perseverance; Flexibility with the capacity to surrender control; Desire for a long-term opportunity to serve centered on relationship. We want people to serve at periodic events throughout the year that will range from anything from playing and teaching kids or setting up dinners for foster parents. Once joining 127 we will help guide each and every person to their perfect volunteer role.
