Over 20,000 children are in the AZ foster care system, join us to find out how you can be involved in helping make a difference in the lives of these children. James 1:27 says, “Pure and genuine religion in the sight of God the Father means caring for orphans and widows in their distress and refusing to let the world corrupt you.”
As Arizona leads the nation per capita in the number of children in foster care, believers and followers of Christ have a great opportunity to live out this command. We are all called to help. We are all called to fight for the weak, to defend the oppressed.

Becoming a mentor to a foster child can be the most vital part in ones life. You get to be a friend, someone who will encourage them, and one that can give stability. It is a very worthy task that quickly turns into a long lasting relationship.
Our Foster Care Ministry is partnering with Arizonians for Children to bring the mentor program to Rock Point Church. This is an exciting opportunity to help a foster child in Need!
Their mission is to facilitate opportunities that provide effective solutions to alleviate hardships and improve the fragile lives of the abused, abandoned, neglected children in foster care.
Stay tuned for our next Foster Mentor orientation.
