If you are serving as a Foster Parent, you are providing a ministry of hope and care to children caught in life situations not of their choosing. You give so much of yourself. You give your time, your financial, your physical, and your emotional resources. Sometimes it can be too much to handle, or you may feel like you are all alone in your struggle to provide a safe and nurturing family atmosphere for these little ones who are delivered to your care. We can help.
Our group meets the Third Monday of each month at Boston Avenue Church from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. in Room J122 in the Jubilee Center.
Boston Avenue Church, in cooperation with Child S.H.A.R.E., is offering a place to find support for you, and others like yourself, who want to share ideas, frustrations, successes, and techniques that can instruct, support, and enrich your foster parenting experience. Please contact Candace Morton of Child S.H.A.R.E. at 918.583.9506 or 866.978.2956 or Rev. Paul Staat, Boston Avenue Director of Missions and Adult Education at 918.699.0133.
Gamblers Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength, and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from a gambling problem.
The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop gambling. There are no dues or fees for Gamblers Anonymous membership; we are self-supporting through our own contributions. Gamblers Anonymous is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organization or institution; does not wish to engage in any controversy; neither endorses nor opposes any cause. Our primary purpose is to stop gambling and to help other compulsive gamblers do the same.
This group meets every Friday from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. at Boston Avenue Church in Room J228. All are "open meetings" in which spouses, family, and friends of the gambler are welcome to attend and observe the meeting.
