F.A.C.E.S. Orphan Ministry

Showing Christ’s Love , through F.A.C.E.S. to orphans, vulnerable children and those who come alongside them. 

Community Reformed Church began an orphan ministry in 2010 as a result of the National Orphan Sunday started by Christian Orphan Alliance. After much prayer and discernment CRC held it’s very first Orphan Sunday in 2011.

F.A.C.E.S. was developed in 2012 as a result of an over whelming awareness of the needs of these vulnerable children that live within our community and throughout the world.

God has been working through churches across the country to spread His message of caring for the Fatherless.

Religion that is pure and undefiled before God, the Father, is this: to care for orphans and widows in their distress, and to keep oneself unstained by the world.        James 1:27

Safe Families

CRC is a participating church in the Safe Families for Children (SFFC) program.   SFFC is an innovative approach to provide homes for children whose parents need a temporary family to place their children with, due to unmanageable or critical circumstances.


There are currently 54 active sites, successfully established in more than 25 states across the United States alone. This has also become a global movement with sites now in Canada and the UK. Safe Families partners with host agencies, local churches, ministries, as well as community and government agencies to intervene in the lives of children and families that would otherwise be forgotten.


Here is a shared story video: https://vimeo.com/98482427


There are many ways to be involved: Host Family, Providing Resources, Professional Services, Respite Care, Support Groups, Mentors, and Case Coaches.

F.A.C.E.S goal (through W.R.A.P.) is to provide practical guidance to those who seek to support foster and adoptive families.

Life’s a harsh reality for many foster and adoptive children and their families.

Tragically many children are born into families unable or unwilling to provide the secure and stable home they need to grow and develop as healthy children. Many have experienced trauma from abuse or neglect. Whether they live in U.S. foster homes or in an overseas orphanage, previously neglected or abused children who fail to receive all God intends for them may develop special needs or difficult behaviors.

The enemy doesn’t stand idly by. For many children and the families who choose to welcome them in, the road to healthy family living may be a rocky one, and it may take longer than they had hoped. Yet, in spite of the challenges, many families are making lifelong commitments to children who need opportunities to heal.

Many foster and adoptive families may interpret their struggles as failure, question their calling or worst of all, feel abandoned by the God who called them to the journey of foster care or adoption. But He who calls them is faithful.

“Be strong and courageous . . .for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.”                              Deuteronomy 31:6

Foster and adoptive families need their church family to wrap around and support them during times of trials. When we do this, we mirror our heavenly Father, who wraps His arms around us during times of joy as well as times of trial.
