The foster care ministry team is seeking to take God’s love into broken places by providing love and support to children in the foster care system by educating the church, connecting the church with opportunities, and by providing support for foster and biological families within our church and our community.

PUSH: We are PUSHing out information about the foster care community to educate our people.

The Sound of Hope 
On Thursday, July 4, we have the opportunity to view the movie that tells the story of one church and how they changed the face of foster care in their community  by stepping up to help vulnerable children.  We will meet at  AMC Barrett Commons at 12:15 to watch the 12:30 show.  The church has pre-purchased 20 tickets.   Reserve your ticket(s) below.

PREPARE: We are PREPARING the people of New Salem and our community by hosting training opportunities.

FaithBridge Foster Care is one of our church partners.  Whether you are curious about the statistics or you might consider fostering one day, you can sign up for a virtual or live Encounter to learn more!  

New Salem will host a live Encounter training on Sunday, June 2 at 5:30 PM.

PROVIDE: We are PROVIDING support to the foster and kinship families in our community.

Notes of Encouragement to 
Cobb DFCS Case Managers
New Salem had the opportunity to partner with The Forgotten Initiative and another church to encourage the workers on the frontlines!  Thank you to everyone that took the time to write a note.  It was good to meet some of the staff and deliver your notes!
