Griffin First Assembly Church of God Launches Christian Foster Care Program

Public Invited to Attend Ministry Kickoff on Sunday, February 7 and Orientation on Sunday, February 28

(Griffin, GA - January 25, 2010) - Griffin First Assembly of God will announce a Spalding County Christian foster care program at its morning worship services on Sunday, February 7, 2010, to be followed by a Foster Care Ministry Orientation on Sunday, February 28, 2010 at the church from 1 pm. - 2:30 p.m.  The public is invited to attend both events.  Visit or call 770.228.2307 for questions or directions.

There are more than 10,000 Georgia children in foster care and 118 in Spalding County.  In addition, there are less than half of the necessary foster families to serve them.  Find out how the local church and individuals can serve Griffin's foster children.  In addition to becoming a foster parent, there are many ways to get involved, such as volunteering to assist with clothing, material goods, transportation, and more.  Find out all of the ways to become involved at the orientation on February 28.

"We are excited to have the Griffin First Assembly of God to step up alongside local service providers to help children who need loving, stable families," said Bill R. Hancock, founder and president of FaithBridge Foster Care. "By deploying an unparalleled service and support system, this church and the individuals who open up their homes and their hearts have the potential to change the way Spalding County does foster care."

This new ministry is in partnership with FaithBridge Foster Care, a Christ-centered, tax-exempt organization intent on changing U.S. foster care.  With currently more than 14 church partners in north Georgia and the greater Atlanta area, FaithBridge's strategy is to mobilize, organize, equip and release local churches and communities to solve the country's foster care crisis.  For more information on FaithBridge, please call 678.690.7100 or visit
