Adoption Ministry

College Park Church & Lifesong for Orphans

Adoption is one of the most vivid pictures of the gospel that God gives His people on earth. One way that we as a church can elevate this beautiful gospel picture is by supporting families in our midst whom God has called to pursue adoption.

In order to do this at College Park, we have partnered with Lifesong for Orphans, a ministry that is passionate about helping local churches support families seeking to adopt both domestically and internationally. The ministry of Lifesong allows our congregation to give tax-free gifts directly to College Park covenant member families in need and helps our church become a place where adoptions are a regular display of the gospel.

How can I support College Park adoptions?
