MINISTRY EVENTS CALENDAR
We provide orientations on a regular basis for those wanting to step into any of our Fostering Together roles. You can register to attend an orientation via the home page by clicking the “Sign up for Orientation” button under the video of the role you are most interested in.
February 11 – Browns Bridge Church
March 11 – Woodstock City Church
April 22 – Buckhead Church
Gather with Fostering Together ministry participants of all roles at your church on the dates below. You will receive an invitation with details before the Huddle at your church.
One of the ways we support foster and respite families is by ensuring that the live training hours required annually are available. There are other places you can get your training, but there is no place you will be assured of being with your congregation while you get your necessary training. You will receive an invitation about a month before each training. Childcare is provided for foster families with current placements. All others can use Childcare Reimbursement to defray childcare costs.
April 14 – Spring Continuing Education
October 13 – Fall Continuing Education
