As God has commanded us to care for the orphans among us, we will strive to educate the membership of FBC to the situations of those who are orphans and in foster care. We will encourage our members to prayerfully consider becoming adoptive parents, foster-care families or mentors to these children whom God has placed in our midst.
"Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress..." - James 1:27
  FBC 1:27 Welcomes Eileen Mestas
  Eileen and her husband are passionate Adoption and Orphan Care
  Advocates.  Come hear Eileen’s powerful story of love, purpose and
  encouragement on Sunday, October 4 at 11:45 in Ellis Hall.
  Tickets for lunch are $5.  Make reservations by Sunday, Sept. 27
  through the church office (childcare if requested. $3/child Children will
  have pizza for lunch).
  The Mestas family by faith stepped into the Miracle of Adoption, and with their story of hope
  this story will encourage and challenge many on the same journey.
                                                           - Mary Beth Chapman: President of Show Hope

  Never have I been so challenged and encouraged to walk by faith... Your heart will be riveted
  as you follow their journey to embrace the orphans of the world as the Father does
  Eileen's book is an honest, compelling story with a miracle on every page.
