Outreach | Online | Foster & Adopt: Monthly Parent Training

Thursday, March 11 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Upstate Foster & Adoptive families are invited to join us virtually for our next monthly parent training. It's true that the social-emotional development of infants and toddlers in foster care who have been neglected, abused, or traumatized can differ from other children. Dr. Mackenzie Soniak of SC Infant Mental Health Association will join us to discuss infant mental health and the impact of a child’s experiences from day 1, highlighting why foster care is so essential to helping these very young children build resiliency. Parents will gain strategies and resources to support a child's social and emotional development through this interactive training. Register through March 9 to receive the virtual meeting link on the day of the training.

AN | Online | Ezer: Biblical Femininity

Thursday, March 18 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Biblical Femininity : God created every woman with a specific purpose — to be an ezer kenegdo, an essential counterpart. An ezer is one who comes alongside another and brings strength in the context of relationship. All women share this core calling, but how we live out our calling looks different for each woman based on her personality, gifts, strengths, perspectives, and season of life. Through the Biblical Femininity study, we learn to embrace our uniqueness and live out our calling right where God has us today. Join us online for this seven-week Ezer study, Biblical Femininity, on Thursday, March 18th at 7:30 PM.

Care | Online | re:generation Mentor Training

Monday, March 22 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

It’s an honor to be asked to mentor a re:generation participant. It means the participant is willing to trust you with some of the deepest parts of their lives and that they see Christ already at work in your life. The most effective mentors are those who spend time on their knees for their participant, themselves, and the re:generation ministry. They serve from the overflow of joy in their hearts, trusting God to bring healing to the participant’s life and leaning on group leaders and the participant’s recovery partners for support.

PL | Online | Ezer: A Woman’s Words

Monday, March 22 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Words are tools. We use them to express ourselves, to communicate, and to connect with others. We use them to vent frustrations and to express joy. We use them to bless and to curse. We use words to manipulate and control and to help and encourage. We use words in ways that tear others down, and we use them in ways that build others up. Proverbs 18:21 says, “Words kill, words give life; they’re either poison or fruit—you choose” (MSG). Words aren’t neutral. They are productive. There is no avoiding this truth—our words will either have positive or negative ramifications. We all know the power of our words, so why do we still struggle to use them in ways that bring life rather than death? Our next study will launch virtually on Monday, March 22 at 7:30 PM.

HB | Online | Ezer: Shame: Finding Freedom

Wednesday, March 31 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
$5

You may feel the sting of shame from your own choices, or maybe you feel marked by the shameful actions others committed against you; you may be deeply aware of shame in your life or you think shame is something only the most broken struggle with. Regardless of where you find yourself, everyone needs to grow in awareness of what shame is and how it operates. Shame: Finding Freedom will help you learn what shame is, identify the experiences, thoughts, and feelings that cause shame, how it affects you in everyday life, and how to live in the freedom and comfort Christ holds out to you.

Outreach | Online | Foster & Adopt: Monthly Parent Training

Thursday, April 8 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Upstate Foster & Adoptive families are invited to join us virtually for our next monthly parent training. There are both hard and beautiful parts of parenting within transracial families! Many foster and adoptive parents are ready to receive a child into their home with open arms. But what happens next? When the child you receive is a different ethnicity than you are, there are many things to learn. We want to help bridge that learning gap for parents through this virtual training. Join Brenda and Toney Parks, as they go deeper from previous trainings to share stories, answer questions, and pass along practical advice for transracial families. Dr. Toney Parks has served for more than 25 years as Pastor of Mt. Sinai Baptist Church and as a community leader in Greenville County, while Brenda is building on nearly 40 years of experience in Child Welfare Services with her current role as the Director of Foster Care for Miracle Hill Ministries. Register through April 6 to receive the virtual meeting link on the day of this training.
