The Fatherless Will Find Their Rest
The Big Picture
All of humanity, because of sin, are orphans. We are estranged from our Father God who desires relationship with us. Through Jesus, God made a way for us to no longer be orphans, but to be adopted into his family with all the rights and privileges that come with being his child (Romans 8:14-16).
In the world today, there are over 18 million orphaned children, with 400,000 in the US alone. Christians have the opportunity to live out the Gospel and meet some serious needs in our world through adoption. Taking in a child and giving him or her all the privileges and rights of one of our own children, becoming a father to the fatherless, is one of the best practical expressions of the Gospel we find on this earth.
The Local Picture
Here at Cornerstone, we try to step into this vision for adoption by helping families get started with (and fund) their adoption process and connecting them with training, resources, and other adoptive parents.
The adoption process
If you are interested in adoption, please find a detailed overview written by one of Cornerstone's adoptive families. Please also find some suggested resources along with the application for the Cornerstone Adoption Grant.
Renew Training and Peer Support
Each month, Cornerstone families meet together on a Thursday evening for training and/or peer support. Click here to see this year's schedule of meetings.
