Woven Families

...You wove me in my mother's womb... Psalm 139:13

Woven Families is a Christ-centered outreach to Immanuel families who are considering adoption, foster care, or are already engaged in the process. In concert with Immanuel's mission, Woven Families endeavors to:

  • Seek Him Constantly by studying God's plan for adoption and how He adopted each believer.
  • Serve Him Faithfully by supporting parents and families before, during and after the seemingly complex process of adoption and foster care.
  • Share Him Boldy by proclaiming God's unqualified love for all His children.
