During the month of May & June, our church has the opportunity to serve adoption and foster care ministries. We will be taking donations of diapers and wipes for Palmer Home for Children and Pregnancy Care Center. You can also choose to make a financial donation to The Glade Church Adoption/Foster Care Scholarship Fund. Envelopes for your financial donations are available at the New Here desk in the Worship Center Foyer.


James 1:27 says “Pure and undefiled religion before God the Father is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself unstained from the world.” We firmly believe it is the responsibility of believers to look after and care for the orphans. We do that in a variety of ways here at The Glade Church. We strive to empower and equip families who are looking to either adopt or foster. In addition, we work alongside several organizations that specialize in adoption, foster care, respite care, and a variety of other avenues related to caring for the fatherless. 

For information on any of our Orphan Care ministries contact Melissa Davidson.

Adoption and Foster Care Ministry - For Glade Church families looking to adopt or foster, there is an adoption scholarship as well as a foster care scholarship available. The scholarships are designed to help offset the cost of foster care and adoption.

Small World Adoption Agency seeks to preserve and enhance the lives of children at home and around the world.
