At Pennington Park, we believe that adoption is a beautiful picture of the gospel. All of us were once spiritual orphans without a family, but through Christ, we are made sons and daughters of the King.
College Park Adoption Ministry
The Adoption Ministry of College Park Church desires to promote a culture of adoption in our church family. In order to fulfill our mission, we have developed a partnership with Lifesong for Orphans, an organization which creates a tax deductible platform for our congregations to both provide and receive financial assistance for child adoptions. We also desire to provide spiritual and emotional care for families who are considering adoption, are in the process of adoption, and have completed adoption.
How Do I Request Adoption Assistance?
In order become an approved College Park adoptive family, we first ask each family to join College Park in covenant membership. After becoming a member, each family needs to complete the Adoption Inquiry Form. After this form has been completed, the College Park Adoption Ministry Team will schedule an interview to learn more about your desire to adopt and provide next steps to becoming an approved College Park adoptive family.
