What happens when....

a pastor calls his church to adoption less than one year ago? Not just to adopt but, also to provide funds for those called ot adopt. Read this article sent to me by Lifesong - WOW!!!!

Kingsland Baptist Church | Tapestry Adoption Ministry

Wow! What can happen in less than 1 year in Church Orphan Ministry!...

January 2009 - Senior Pastor Alex Kennedy shares a "state of Kingsland" sermon expressing his desire for Kingsland Baptist Church to focus on Adoption & Orphan Care

Since then...

1. Within a few weeks of that sermon, a significant amount of funds were contributed by congregation in response to sermon...those funds were allocated for Kingsland Church Adoption Fund that Lifesong administers.

2. Pastor Alex and his wife Christy feel called & begin the process to adopt a child domestically in the state of Texas.

3. Patrick McCrory, Robin Espey and an entire team at Kingsland begin to form the "Tapestry Adoption Ministry", providing resources like: Adoption Fund, Guiding families thru Domestic & International Adoption process, CPS and Foster Care information, Post-Adoption Services, and debunking Common Myths.

4. November 1, 2009 - Pastor Alex preaches on the "Gift of Adoption" including the theology of adoption

And check out this fun "Tapestry Adoption Corner" they've created in a main hallway to create a culture of adoption @ Kingsland!
