"I WILL NOT leave you as orphans, I WILL come to you" - John 14:18
WHO WE ARE
Embrace Me! is a resource-based ministry dedicated to individuals, families, and churches who have always wanted to "do something" to help children but didn't know where to go or what to do.
Our mission is to equip people to become an adoptive/foster parent by providing information, services and support.
Every church will "do something" to reduce the 130,000 children who are living in the United States foster care system and waiting to be adopted. Our hope is that these children will have families who will show them the way to Christ!
Envision. Empower. Embrace!
Envision...every child in a family.
Empower...families to embrace children.
Embrace...embrace a child, adopt a life!
You are cordially invited to Embrace Me's 1st Annual Charity Gala. This event will benefit the adoption and foster care ministry and will be held on Sunday, November 4th from 6:00p - 8:00p in the Multipurpose Venue. Doors will open at 5:30p.
The evening will feature motivational speaker and author Rhonda Sciortino, who will share her from her book, "From Foster Care to Millionaire." Her powerful testimony will explore how she personally overcame homelessness, foster care, and darkness. Lawrence Anthony Wyatt, a foster youth advocate, will also deliver a message of hope and healing. Our prayer is that the stories you hear will inspire you to EMBRACE one of God's precious children!
"Whoever welcomes one of these little children in my name welcomes me; and whoever welcomes me does not welcome me but the one who sent me." - Mark 9:37
This event is also open to single adults, couples, and small groups who wish to enjoy an evening out while empowering families to embrace children.
In addition to the testimonies, there will be food, music, story-telling and other inspiration. A special highlight will be the silent auction which will have over 33 wonderful items to select from. All of these items will be donated for this wonderful cause!
About the Speakers:
Rhonda Sciortino has written several books, including, "Succeed Because of What You've Been Through." Through her testimony, she will show you how to overcome, succeed and thrive by turning your adversity into your advantage.
"Rhonda's story is powerful, [and] her communication of the story is amazing, [as is] her ability to reach the hearts of an audience. She is one of the VOICES to speak for foster youth. Read her book. Hear her speak. Join the movement in helping foster youth." - Wayne Tesch, Co-Founder of Royal Family Kids

DID YOU KNOW?
Every year 500,000 children are placed in foster care. That means EVERY 36 seconds, a child is taken from his/her home, family, friends, relatives, toys, bedroom, clothes, pets, etc. 130,000 of these children never return home and are waiting for someone to adopt them.
Christians are being faithful in visiting, clothing, feeding and praying for orphans, but WHO will go beyond the “call of duty” to care for them and actually make them a part of their families?
Adult singles make excellent parents!
Can’t find the “love of your life?” Then find your life in the love of a child!
