Orphan Care

We raise awareness for the cause of orphans and vulnerable children and support those who are living it out in their everyday life.

"Defend the weak and the fatherless; uphold the cause of the poor and the oppressed."

We invite you to become involved! There are a few things you can do to help out right now:

  • Pray for FC families that foster and have adopted children and pray that more FC families will choose to foster and/or adopt children.
  • Beginning January 2020, the Tennessee Department of Children's Services will begin delivering a new pre-approval curriculum for prospective foster parents called Tennessee KEY.
  • You can get more information on becoming a foster parent by visiting the Tennessee Department of Children's Services Website (DCS).
  • Adopt an FC Foster Family by supporting them (You can do this as a family or as a small group).
  • Learn more about the different ways to become an adoptive family.

Fostering Hearts

This weekly bible study is designed for foster/adoptive moms and prospective foster/adoptive moms.

Next class begins Tuesday, August 18th from 9:30-11:00 a.m. Childcare is available for children birth through preschool for a small fee. Scholarships are available. RSVP to attend with or without childcare needs at

Small Group Support

One of our missional focus areas at FC is to match foster families with a small group to love and care for the families as an added layer of care. As a small group comes alongside an FC foster family, they are able to walk with them and encourage them in their daily life.

Respite Care

We encourage you to let us know if you are willing to assist with respite care for families. This allows families to have a much-needed break or to even accept new foster child placements. If you are interested, please email today!

Being a respite care friend allows parents to have a dinner out, an afternoon running errands, or attend doctor visits with only one child. It is also a wonderful opportunity to support our families! In addition, foster parents have had to say ‘no’ to a potential placement because they couldn’t leave their home to go pick-up the foster children in the middle of the night while their other children were sleeping. Having a friend come over so that they could go receive new foster kids can mean the foster children get to be in a loving home much sooner!
