The Purpose of the Church

Titus 2:4 says, Christ “gave Himself for us to redeem us from all lawlessness and to purify for Himself a people for H2is own possession who are zealous for good works.”

And to be certain we knew what type of “good works” God wants the church to pursue, He included two in James 1:27–“Religion that is pure and undefiled before God and the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world.”

To make it as easy as possible for churches to encourage their members to pursue the fatherless, we offer adoption funds at no cost to churches.


Common Barriers & Solutions

Here are the 3 most common barriers churches face when starting a Church Adoption Fund:

Church staff “plate is already full” to administer fund.

Church feels uncomfortable/awkward approving/denying their own families.

launch 100

Launching a fund – Lifesong helps your church allocate funding from missions budget, benevolence fund or raised funds (see Both Hands Project for Churches) to launch ministry for Adoption Fund.Example: First Baptist Church allocates $15,000 to be used as interest-free loans and/or matching grants.

Admin 100

Administratively easy – Lifesong serves your church by using our existing grant & loan management processes to administer your church adoption fund (i.e. qualifying families on mutually agreed upon criteria, administering funds, etc.). This eliminates the need for the local church to “re-create the wheel” in establishing a fund. Lifesong will help administer the adoption fund, at no cost to the church or the fund.

Synergy – We can do more together (Local Church and Lifesong) than either of us can do solely on our own.
