Foster & Adopt

Our Commitment

Grace Church is committed to following the biblical mandate to care for vulnerable children by engaging the needs of foster care and adoptive families. We support the foster and adopt community across the Upstate through foster family recruitment, training, support, and various other resources. We are committed to walking with foster families as they enter the system and bring a child home and as he or she grows and matures.

We have full time staff whose job is to guide people through the licensing and adoption process and to provide support to those who are fostering or have adopted. Read on for much more information about how to get involved and how we can support you.

Foster

As a body, we are called to care for the orphaned and the vulnerable of society; as individuals, we must prayerfully consider how we are being called to action to join the cause.

This could mean becoming licensed as a foster parent or a respite caregiver to one of the over 1,500 children in the Upstate in foster care. We believe that orphan care is valuable for us as a church body; we are not asking you to foster alone and want to walk alongside you in caring for these children.
If you are a Grace Church member or attendee who is licensed to foster, we would love to know.

If you are interested in beginning the process to foster, click below to complete the Miracle Hill Foster Care Inquiry Form. You will then be invited to a Foster Parent Info Meeting where you will learn more about fostering in South Carolina.

Adopt

As believers, we have been brought into God’s family, therefore, we bring others into ours. We have a Father who protects us and provides for us, therefore we seek opportunities to provide for and protect others. We have been adopted, therefore we adopt.

We understand that the process of bringing an adoptive child into your home is not always an easy one, and we want to be a resource to you. If you are considering adoption, are in the process of adopting, or have already adopted, please let us know!

Resources

Parent's Night Out

Grace Church families who are fostering, who have adopted, or who are providing kinship care are welcome to join us for a night out with free childcare and meal for the kids. We provide dinner, crafts, a Bible lesson, and fun & games for kids of all ages while parents run errands, have a date night, or simply use the time to rest and reset.

Join us on the 3rd Friday of every month from 5:30pm to 8:30pm at our Pelham Campus.

Wraparound Groups

Wraparound groups give time, energy, and relational support to you and your family as you welcome these children into your homes. Wraparound groups serve foster and adoptive families with consistent prayer and by helping address physical needs such as childcare, meals, or yard work.

Foster & Adopt Resource Center

We provide various necessary items to adoptive, foster care, and kinship care families and would love to have your stop in within the first few days of a new placement (or as seasons and sizes change) to “shop” with us.
