Orphan Sunday and Tabitha's Closet

Reminder- THIS Sunday, Nov. 8th is Orphan Sunday! See below...

Free Concert and Clothing for Foster and Adopted Children

We'd like to invite you and your family to an Event on Orphan Sunday, November 8th from 5-7. The event will include a concert with Steven Curtis Chapman, broadcast live via webcast into the Terrace Hall at Biltmore Baptist Church. Please Note: the time is 5:00, not 4:00 like the poster indicates below (We are in Eastern Time zone, while concert will be in Central). We'll also be collecting used coats (both children and adult sizes) that will be donated to Tabitha's Closet.

That evening, Tabitha's Closet will have gently-used winter children's clothes available for parents of adopted or foster children. We encourage you to come and take what you need, free of charge! If you have any questions about the event, please contact Jill Toth at

Join us and spread the word!

Presbyterian Home for Children- Black Mountain

Hi Alliance Friends-

This message is from Leighton Pauly at the Presbyterian Home for Children here in Black Mountain. These classes are free, so please pass this along to anyone who may be interested in fostering or fostering-to-adopt classes taught in a Christian environment.

Thanks! Lorie

Presbyterian Home for Children in Black Mountain is preparing to hold a 10-week training session for anyone who may be interested in becoming a foster parent. If you have ever thought about becoming a foster parent, this would be an opportunity to explore exactly what it would look like and decide with a trainer if it would be right for you and your family.

Training sessions will begin the 2nd week of January. They will last 10 weeks ending in March, depending on inclement weather. If you are interested and have questions please feel free to contact Leighton Pauly, coordinator of Foster Care at 828. 686.3451 x15 or
