Gregory's Gift: NCC Adoption Fund

Living 1:27 established its adoption fund in the fall of 2012 as a means of serving families who have felt lead towards adoption. Gregory’s Gift was created to offer interest-free loans and matching grants to qualified NCC church families, as well as families outside our church walls, who are in need of financial assistance to offset the initial costs involved with adoption.

NCC's Vision for an Orphan Care Community

In 2016, the Orphan Care ministry leader team plans to offer one informational session each quarter to provide more detailed information on each category in the vision. Within each category there is a range of opportunities where you can get involved from prayer to support as well as volunteering time to full out hosting of kids in your home.

In January, we explored the middle of the NCC Vision by bringing in Kristen Slomka from Bethany Christian Services who explored the range of opportunities in the SAFE Families category.  Kristen's presentation includes detailed slides which you can read through HERE online. paying special attention to slide 9 which lists the range of opportunities in this category, and slide 11 which is Kristen's contact details if you have any questions.

Gregory's Gala

On Sunday, May 22, 2016, a wonderful opportunity to engage our community in the fight for orphans and families, and the chance to see how one person's gift, no matter what it is, has the power to make a tremendous impact in the lives of orphans and families around the world and right here in our community. A black-tie optional affair in 1920s style was held for an evening of music, food, and mingling...with many changes to win wonderful prizes while helping this ministry flourish.
