Adoption by G.R.A.C.E. is an intentional ministry of adoption of Lee's Summit Community Church in Lee's Summit, Missouri. The "G.R.A.C.E." acronym stands for God Reaching Adopted Children Eternally.
Our mission is two-fold. The first part of our mission is to reach the congregation of Lee's Summit Community Church with the needs of the orphan, and to provide information and encouragement to those interested in adoption.
The second part of our mission is to encourage and assist you to begin an adoption ministry in your local church. We can help you to:
- be a voice for the millions of orphaned children worldwide
- encourage your church members to pray and ask God if adoption is right for their family
- be a source of information and encouragement to those who feel called by God to place an adopted child into their family, and by God's grace, into the Family of God
- encourage your church members to help orphans through sponsorship, giving, missions and prayer
- set up an adoption fund
Our hope is that many more churches would choose to begin an adoption ministry and that as a result; many precious children would be placed into loving Christian homes and would come to know Jesus as their Lord and Savior. We hope to help you encourage and challenge members of your church to remember the orphans of the world and begin to pray, "Oh, Lord, what would you have us do?" We praise God, who is the author of adoption, and who is the One who places the lonely in families.
