Raising humans is hard. Find resources in your community that can help provide support to families in need on the front lines.
River City Church – Jacksonville
Foster, adopt, and infertility group support:
“Much of Jesus’ ministry happened around the table. We believe that positive change happens when 3 or 4 people commit to follow Jesus by engaging the Scriptures and praying together.
Table Groups can be easily understood by this acrostic:
T – Together (3 or 4 people)
A – Ask (How are you doing?)
B – Bible (Read Scripture together)
L – Love (How can I serve you during this time?)
E – Encounter (Prayer for each other)
Table Groups happen in the spring and the fall for about ten weeks. Each table has a host who will coordinate the group.”
