Your church can bring hope and a future for a child in foster care.
Ark Australia – QB Kids Event – Thursday 19th April 2018 from Queensland Baptists on Vimeo.
There are over 46,000 children in Australia living in out-of-home care. There’s 9103 children in Queensland who are living separated from their families. Many of these children have suffered heart-breaking separation and trauma. They are in need of love, rescue and healing. They are in need of hope and a future.
We know our God has called us to be a voice for the voiceless [Proverbs 31:8-10], and has told us that whatever we have done for the marginalised in society, we have done in service for Jesus himself [Matt 25:40-45]. We know he has a heart for the lost, the heartbroken, the abandoned and the forgotten in our world. We know He has a plan for each of these children. That He has made a way for the lost to hear about the hope we have in Jesus. And we know that plan is us, the church.
It is our God’s desire that each child He has created be given ‘a hope and a future’ [Jeremiah 29:11]. It is the Lord who dictates the steps of His children – not the world. And it us, the church, who He has charged with the mission to carry this hope into the darkest of places.
QB Kids & their Families is hosting a day with ARK Australia, an organisation that works alongside churches and families to provide homes and support for foster children, families & communities. We are hosting a morning or afternoon tea, where you can come hear from Lucas & Heather, from ARK Australia & Crossway Baptist. You can hear about the difference the church family can make in the lives of these children. How we, the church, are bringing healing and hope to their hearts.
We are inviting pastors, church leaders and all those interested in rescuing and renewing the hope for foster children, to join us at our free event in April. It’s not a program to run; it’s not more resources to buy. It’s a chance to for us as the church to learn how we can step in and make room for these children in our church families, that we may show them God’s plan for them – a hope and a future.
