TRBC members, ChrisAnne and Arnold Shultz, serve as Florida Baptist Chlidren's Home cottage parents. They minister to hurting children in a group home setting by providing a safe and positive living environment while meeting their physical and spiritual needs in practical ways. Today ChrisAnne shares how they've seen our TRBC family help these FBCH children and their ministry. This Sunday our church has another opportunity to fill the FBCH pantries with staple items like pasta, peanut butter, snacks, cereal and pancake mixes that they will use throughout the year. Be sure to bring your grocery bag full of items and place them in front of your parking spot this Sunday morning.
“For just as the body is one and has many members,
and all the members of the body, though many, are one body,
so it is with Christ.”
1 Corinthians 12:14
As a houseparent at Carlton Cottage of Florida Baptist Children’s Home, we get to witness firsthand the body of Christ at work in the lives of the foster children living here, and often those efforts come directly from the members of TRBC.
Here are just a few of the ways we've been blessed by the TRBC family:
I apologize in advance that I am sure I left something off this list. The TRBC family is so generous and creative that it can be hard to keep up with all the amazing ways we are joined in ministry. We are blessed to be the front lines of ministry to these great kids. But, we can only do what we do because of the numerous others that come along side us. It really is the entire church family of TRBC that makes our ministry possible. Without each of you, we would not be effective reaching out to our kids with the message and love of Christ. Your efforts free us to spend more time and energy hands on with the kids.
Would like to join us in ministry? We would love to have you! Please let Arnold or I know your heart is leading you to partner with us. Whether you have an idea of how you want to minister or not, there is a place for you in the Carlton Cottage family. You can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know. If you are praying for us and our kids, we would love to know that too; please send us an email to let us know.
