Waco Outreach Hosts Adoption Support Group
MCH Family Outreach in Waco hosts a biweekly adoption support group for mothers. The group setting is in a public, casual space and allows participants to share their experiences, learn from others and receive support and resources. Children are welcome to the gatherings and there are occasional events planned for whole families.
“As we strive to support families in their walk toward hope and healing, we have had the wonderful honor of creating a space for adoptive moms to join together and spend time with others on similar journeys,” said Hannah Osborne, case manager at MCH Family Outreach in Waco.
“Building relationships with other adoptive parents and having others to celebrate life moments with, ask questions of and walk with in the more challenging times is incredibly valuable,” she added. “Seeing these families do this in community is a beautiful thing.”

Youth Participate in Worship Planning
The Worship Planning Team gives youth the opportunity to share Christ with their peers in their own way. Five residents are part of this year’s team. To serve on the team, youth are interviewed and selected based on leadership qualities and previous meaningful participation in Spiritual Development (SD) programs. The team meets monthly and helps SD ministers plan Sunday morning worship, lead Bible studies and assists in other roles related to spiritual formation on campus.
“We equip the Worship Planning Team to use their gifts to express who they are as children of God,” said Ron Britton, spiritual development minister.
