November is National Adoption Month, and is a good chance for the Church to learn more about God's heart for the fatherless and how He is calling us to make sure all children have families.
Here in DC there is much need for the Church to take action around the foster care system, and there will opportunities for us to partner together on some things in the coming months.
There is a chance coming up soon though to learn more about God's heart for adoption and what the Church is doing nationwide to address this issue. The Jason Yost Band and New Rhythm, along with ADOPTION JOURNEy AND CAFO PRESENTS, will be hosting a Google+ hang-out and concert this Sunday, November 18th. Jason and Shelly Yost, who attend National Community Church here in DC, started New Rhythm, a foster care and adoption non-profit, and are doing awesome work to raise awareness and mobilize believers to love the fatherless. If you're interested in learning more about foster care, adoption, and what the Church can do - as well as spending some time in worship with other believers - definitely join the Google hang-out!
