Today’s young families often find themselves away from home and extended family at times when they are needed the most. One of the most critical times is when the family discovers they are expecting a new baby either through adoption or natural birth. Knowing that this is often a time of uncertainty and many questions, FBC Lawton has put into place a volunteer team of women who want to be the listening ear, the voice of compassion and experience, and the calming presence during the waiting period. Little Lambs is our ministry to New and Expectant Parents.
How does it work? Each family will be assigned a mentor who will be their support person throughout the pregnancy or adoption process. The mentor will make regular contact and home visits each month. We have some wonderful gifts that we will deliver as well to help new mom’s and dad’s on this journey. Two times a year, we will provide a celebration breakfast, honoring those who have added to their home within the last six months. This ministry is a great opportunity to get to know others who are expecting/adopting and the importance of starting young children off from the beginning with a strong spiritual foundation.
If you would like to be a part of this ministry, either as a mentor or as an expecting family, please contact the Preschool Ministries office at 353-1770, ext. 118. We want to support you any way we can!
