Love in Action

So every child in foster care knows they matter to God...
and to us.

We invite you to get involved and make a difference.  

There are over 250 foster children in Charleston County, and hundreds more in the cities surrounding our Seacoast Campuses. We ask you to pray about how you can serve with the Foster Care Ministry and demonstrate the love of Jesus by caring for some of the most vulnerable children in our communities. Jesus went to extravagant lengths to move closer to us in our brokenness, and we can live out his Gospel by moving toward the brokenness of children in foster care. Be a part of God’s redemptive plan.

Support Foster and Kinship Families

Seacoast’s Foster Care Ministry has opportunities for you to serve foster families in ways that match your giftings. Parents’ morning out, support groups, meal trains, and babysitting are just a few of the ways you can support children in care without opening your home. We also offer support to kinship families and adoptive parents.

Donations for Foster Families

Help provide essential items for foster families when they welcome a new child into their home. Throughout the year, you can donate gift cards (Target and Walmart, preferred) or donate new clothing items and diapers (the bin is located in Seacoast’s Mount Pleasant Campus parking lot). You can also serve on the team that organizes the closet.

Become a Licensed Foster Family

Connie Maxwell Children's Ministries, a licensing partner for Seacoast, will provide training, licensing, and wrap-around support.

Provide a Journey Bag at Christmas

Every December, we collect Journey Bags for boys and girls in foster care and donate them to local Department of Social Services (DSS) offices and non-profits serving foster children. Journey Bags are backpacks or duffle bags filled with essential items, and fun, age-appropriate books and toys for children to enjoy. A Journey Bag is a tangible reminder to a child that they are not forgotten. Journey Bag tags will be available at Seacoast campuses in early December.

Every one of us has the capacity to love and serve in some way. Not all of us can open our homes, but we can serve and support those who have.
