Children's Hope

Children's Hope is a church orphan ministry of FBC based on James 1:27. It encompasses foster care, adoption, and orphan support. The mission of Children's Hope is to engage the church in carrying out God's command to care for orphans.

Foster Care

Children's Hope has formed a  partnership with the Alabama Baptist Children's Home in order to provide Christian homes to those children coming into care either through the foster care system or private placement. CH also provides support to the local DHR office in various ways. A history of CH and ongoing updates can be found at


Children's Hope will provide financial assistance to qualified families through a partnership with Lifesong for Orphans; provide ongoing support/information group for adoptive families and those who are in the process of adopting.  We will continue to highlight the need for Christian families to adopt by having special services and speakers such as Auburn offensive line coach, Jeff Grimes and Dr. Russell Moore.

Orphan Support

Children's Hope provides an opportunity for members of FBC to reach out to orphans through a partnership with a local Baptist church in Jacmel, Haiti. We are also working with the State Board of Missions with this project. A number trips have been made to Jacmel since August 2010 to work with and plan our future involvement with 18 orphans in this area. These children had been living in a tent since the Jan. 2010 earthquake. They are now in a rental house, attending school and thriving. CH is in the process of purchasing  land and construction of a permanent home began in July 2011. A history of CH and ongoing updates can be found at
