We are not all called to foster or adopt, we are all called to care about vulnerable children.
Church of the City has the privilege to walk alongside foster families during the time God calls them to be foster families. As a church we say:
“YES” TO PERMANENCE AND BELONGING FOR CHILDREN;
“YES” TO WRAPPING AROUND THESE COURAGEOUS KIDS AND FAMILIES;
“YES” TO FULFILLING THE VERY ROLE GOD INTENDED FOR THE CHURCH.
Meet with staff member, Stephanie Shivers, who has worked with families pursuing adoption and foster care in the Middle Tennessee area for over a decade. For more information please contact Stephanie Shivers by clicking below.
Whether you’ve been around COTC for a while as a foster or adoptive family, or if you’re new to our community, we would love to get to know you. Please help by completing the form below. This will also allow us to share opportunities and gatherings at COTC designed to support and encourage foster and adoptive families.
Provide a Meal – Relieve some stress and build relationships by taking the same family a meal once per month.
Laundry Support – Help the family by picking up their laundry, washing their clothes, folding, & returning it to their home.
Relief Care – Give families and parents relief by providing care for children to allow parents the opportunity for a date night or alone time. This opportunity will require additional training.
Any foster family can come and shop at no cost for tangible items for all the children in their care. We have two open houses a year (Spring and Fall) to help with kids needing new clothes for the current season. Our on-call team fields calls for shopping appointments 7 days per week and can be reached at (931)215-3764.
