Granville Christian Church in Paris, MO celebrated the ministry of foster families on May 20, during National Foster Care Month. Two member families spoke about their experiences in foster care and how faith influences and strengthens them. The guest preacher was former foster child Antornette Allison, now Youth Pastor at Willow Street Christian Church in Hannibal.
Granville Church is also collecting items for Angel Wings, a organization in Mexico, MO that provides clothing and other items for foster children. A speaker from Angel Wings will be present during the Sunday School hour June 3, and Granville kids will be making simple jewelry items for foster kids during Vacation Bible School.
