Community Wide Foster/Adopt Support Group

This is a support group that will meet the 3rd Sunday of every month from 4:00 to 6:00 PM and it is for anyone involved in the foster/adopt community in Bulverde/Spring Branch area.  We will try to rotate churches so it does not fall completely on one church, but for now CBC- Bulverde has agreed to host it.  Be sure to invite your friends and share the word.  Community is such a critical piece of this journey.
