If You Were Mine

A Workshop for Those Exploring Adoption

Have you ever thought about adopting? Engaging the Fatherless will be hosting an interactive 6-week study called If You Were Mine for those interested in exploring whether adoption is right for their family.

This study will provide informed insight on many topics, including God's heart for orphans, basic decisions, agencies, funding, paperwork, home studies and finalization. All of this is aimed at helping you or someone you know, understand the next steps to take and discern whether God is calling you to give a child a forever family through adoption.

Beginning January 17th, the study will run for six weeks. Childcare is available. A workbook is required for this study which can be purchased for $10. We don't want finances to be a barrier that keeps anyone from attending so please contact us if you need assistance. You can register online at http://www.hhbc.com/engaging-the-fatherless.

Jumping in to 2010

There are so many ways you can get involved in what is going on within the ministry right now! God has been so faithful to open the hearts of so many who have a passion for Engaging the Fatherless!

Mark your calendars for January 17th. Two big happenings that night. First we are kicking off the Adoption classes at Henderson Hills for anyone who has had the nudge to possibly explore the option of adoption, but didn’t know where to start. This class will help answer so many of your questions! The class will be a six week course and you won’t want to miss it. You can enroll online at hhbc.engagingthefatherless.com. Or you can email Susie at ssexton@hhbc.com for more information. The class will have childcare provided, but you must preregister. The cost of the materials will be $10.

Also, on the 17th our Foster Care branch will be holding an informational meeting for those who are interested in exploring becoming foster parents. Several organizations will be present to answer questions, share information and help direct those interested in becoming foster parents. This meeting will be in Room W105 at Henderson Hills. If you or someone you know might be interested in learning more about foster care or ways you can help serve children in the foster care system, you won’t want to miss this. You can contact Julie at jlee@hhbc.com or Beth at millardkbme@yahoo.com for more information.

Another event to mark on your calendar is going to be put on by our widows branch of the ministry. We are having a tea party! Yes, we will be serving tea to all of our widow ladies at Henderson Hills. Watch for more details to come and please plan to join us, it will be like nothing ever done at Henderson Hills. We are looking forward to it. If this is something you would like to help serve at or be a part of, please contact Sharon at scoon.hhbc.com.

If you are interested in being a part of any of these events, or if you would like to learn more about the Engaging The Fatherless ministry at Henderson Hills. We would love to hear from you!
