Local Church Toolkit

A Resource for Pastors and Local Church Ministry Leaders

Welcome to Wellroot Family Services’ Local Church Toolkit! Wellroot is proud of our deep heritage in the Methodist Tradition. We are eager to help our United Methodist and other church partners establish thriving ministries that support those in their community. Here you can find downloadable resources and links to help engage your church in foster care ministry and stay informed with all that’s happening at Wellroot.

Use Our Curriculum to Raise Awareness

We currently offer two free, fun ways to connect children and youth to the wider mission of Wellroot Family Services through our Kids Helping Kids curriculum.  Our VBS Mission Kit works with any VBS theme and gives you the tools to focus on the ministries of Wellroot as the children learn about missions. The second resource is a lesson for any gathering of youth or children. Both resources give your children and youth a hands-on way to help other children from right here in North Georgia.

Amazing Grace Offering Resources

Churches across North Georgia receive the Amzing Grace Offering on the third Sunday in September to support the mission and ministry of Wellroot Family Services. 100% of your churches offering directly supports children and families in Georgia.

Engage in Foster Care Ministry

In addition to supporting Wellroot Family Services with your prayers and financial gifts, cultivating a Wellroot ministry in your congregation or network offers God’s grace to children and families in your local community. Discover how you can engage in foster care ministry in your local church.

Communicate the Need for Foster Families

Children and teens escaping abusive or neglectful situations need a safe place to live and be loved. We need your help to recruit new foster parents. Spread the word in your church that supportive, stable foster homes are needed in Georgia!
