Connecting Churches to Children in Need

CarePortal has been around for several years, but it has only started in Clinton County in 2019.  Our congregation was one of the inaugural churches to step up and join with CarePortal. 


Through CarePortal, churches are connected with the Division of Family Service social workers to ensure that children get the care they need, whether that be with their family of origin, in a foster-home, an adoptive home, or an age-out program.Please, watch this video to learn more about the program and how you can be involved.

CarePortal is not about sending money to missionaries, it is about us being missionaries.

This is just one way our congregation can live out our faith.  As James tells us that "Pure and undefiled religion before God the Father is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself unstained from the world." (James 1:27, CSB).
