One of our priorities at KingsWay is to love and serve our neighbors. Over the past few years, we as a church have had the privilege of providing Christmas gifts for foster children in Henrico County. These gifts have been an expression of God’s love and care to many children and young adults. 

This time of year is particularly hard for foster children because it can increase their feelings of loss and remind them of what they do not have with their biological family. Henrico often sees the highest amount of placement disruptions and/or hospitalizations during the holidays. This year there has been an additional increase in case load. Providing Christmas gifts is our opportunity to tangibly show the love of Christ to those who are hurting. Please prayerfully consider sponsoring a child as an individual, a family, or collectively in a group (such as your community group).

If you choose to sponsor a child, you will receive a list of Christmas wishes, specific needs for clothes, and hobbies/interests. Please stop by the table in the foyer this Sunday (November 3) in order to pick up a list. This Sunday is the last day to sign up for this opportunity.

The gifts will need to be brought to the church on Sunday, December 15, 2019. Families, groups, or individuals who would like to visit with the foster family to provide the gifts directly will need to contact Shawn Rozier prior to December 15 so that a visit can be set up. These visits can be a time of encouragement for both the child or young adult and their foster parents. Please remember that foster parents are often dealing with the struggles the foster care youth are having and this is a time to encourage them too!
