Missions

Engagement and service within the community. We identify a need then empower the church to be the hands and feet of Jesus. This is important because others witness acts of kindness, which we hope they will emulate.
“The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’ Matthew 25: 40 
But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” Acts 1: 8

Tidewater Friends of Foster Care

TFFC is committed to raising awareness of the needs of children in foster care and increasing the number of available foster family homes. They also work to provide enrichment programs that bridge the gap between what is available from public services and those elements that are essential to a healthy, happy and thriving childhood.
We partner with TFFC to provide Christmas and birthday gifts for children in foster care.

This year we expect to provide holiday wishes for over 750 foster and at-risk youth and we need your help to do it!

If you have room in your heart this holiday season we kindly ask that you sponsor a child. Here's how it works:
1) You sign up to be a sponsor here: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdX1BRZvJZq1e2nu17TkrUakJ4XicsiOVRfSf6IzkNeF2tvYg/viewform
(and share the link with anyone you think would love to participate too!)
2) On November 1st we will email you a wishlist from a foster or at-risk youth
3) You buy, wrap and tag your presents
4) Between November 28th and December 5th you drop your gift at one of our designated YMCA drop locations.

If you can't sponsor this year but you still would like to participate to bring joy to youth in care this holiday season, you can also sign up to volunteer here. https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSekJo7PazOFJCN05x29hAFeE1iobY-qppa8paCgBizajejRGw/viewform
We have plenty of volunteer opportunities to help- including call-a-thons, wrap-a-thons, Holiday HQ helpers, social media advocates and logistics experts.

Great news!  In addition to the Tidewater Friends of Foster Care (TFFC) Christmas gift program, we will once again be collecting unwrapped family board games for foster families.   Games will be collected at the missions table until 27 Nov.
