Every Child Ministry: Please pray for more churches and more families to get involved with Every Child. There are currently 16,358 children in foster care in New York State with about 1,000 living in Erie County. Statewide there are 4,239 children waiting to be adopted. We have an estimated 9,695 churches in New York State. Together, as the Body of Christ in NYS, we actually have the capacity to provide a loving Christian home to every child currently in the system. As Christians, we are called to care for the most vulnerable among us. Imagine what the Church could do in raising up the next generation by teaching every child that God loves him/her and how to follow Jesus daily. During this “downtime,” let’s ask the Lord to show each of us how He would have us serve.
