Adoption and Foster Care Information Meeting

Are you interested in learning about adoption and foster-care and ways to respond to the needs of children who need caring families?
Do you sense God may be leading you in this direction but you don’t know where to start?
Facts: – The Panhandle area has one of the highest percentages of children in out-of-home-care in the state of FL. – Currently, there is a dire shortage of foster and adoptive families in the Florida Panhandle. – There are over 149 million orphans worldwide in need of forever families. On Monday, June 5, we are hosting an Adoption and Foster Care information meeting for individuals and families who would like to learn about the options, processes, and needs.
Representatives from Emerald Coast Orphan Care will present information about domestic-infant adoption and international adoption, private adoption, and about local foster care and adoption.
This event is free for those attending and childcare is available with an RSVP.

Men's Summer Groups
June 12th - June 14th, 2017
Men, this summer, join EBC Men's Ministry on a journey of becoming Kingdom Men. We invite you to join on our groups that will go through the study Kingdom Man by Dr. Tony Evans. Kingdom Man challenges and equips men to fully understand their position under God as well as their position over what God has given them. It provides concepts that will help them to actively pursue ways to maximize and develop the character qualities of biblical manhood in their lives.
During the summer we have Kingdom Man groups that will meet on Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday evenings. You choose the night that works best for you.
All groups will meet on EBC Campus.

Starting Point is a casual environment where you will have the chance to meet staff and leaders as we tell what it means to belong to Emmanuel. Starting Point includes an overview of the vision and values of Emmanuel and an introduction to serving, giving and biblical community. You will also hear the unique heartbeat of Emmanuel and learn how you can merge more deeply into how God is moving here.
The first step in membership is attending Starting Point. Becoming a member is a prayerful process, so at the end of Starting Point, there is no ‘high-pressure sale!’ While attending Starting Point is necessary for membership, attending Starting Point does not obligate you to membership. We will simply explain the membership process and let you know how you may respond.
We hope that, as God leads, you make a covenant to be part of our church family.For your convenience, Starting Point is offered approximately every six weeks on Sunday mornings, so activities and programming for children are available. Preschoolers and Children are welcome to stay in Discovery Park and The Hangar during Starting Point. Middle school and high school students may attend Starting Point with their family.
Registration is now open.
