Your Group: The Mission to Share Good News
We are available to the following groups to speak:
- School: Consider having us speak to a high school or college sociology or psychology class about adoption. There are so many misconceptions about adoption. Teenagers and young adults will be astounded to hear the truth about this option.
- Sunday School: Your church will want to see dynamic video presentations and have a discussion on a number of topics related to domestic, embryo, and international adoption as well as orphan care.
- Youth Group: We can speak to your youth about the needs of orphans and what the Gospel commands of us. We can provide discussion questions as well.
- Civic Groups: People are amazed when they learn the needs of orphans in our own community and around the world.
- MOPS groups: Many women want to know about adoption, the needs of orphans, and projects that their group can participate in.
- Mission Program: We can share through our hosting programs, how the mission field can be brought here. Also we can give discuss concrete ways your mission program in your church can make a difference in the lives of orphans.
- Crisis Pregnancy Centers: Many volunteers do not know how to present the adoption option as a life-affirming alternative to abortion. We can help you provide women facing an unplanned pregnancy with another choice.
- Educational Workshops: Nightlight also provides pre and post adoption educational events so that prospective and adoptive parents can more about the realities of adoption and find the support and counseling they need.
Contact us if your church is interested in hosting an adoption event, fair, or to find out more about having someone speak at your school, church, or other organization.
