Making Mercy Tangible: Adoption Grants



Caring for widows, orphans, and people in need is a significant part of our calling to mercy ministry. Over the next three weeks, we’re celebrating stories of how God is bringing wholeness to our congregation individually and collectively through tangible acts of service, mercy, and justice.  

This week Aaron and Hidi Gardner shared how a Deacon Team Adoption Grant helped them fulfill their call to adopt.  


  • How do these stories help us see the need in our own congregation with new eyes?

  • How do these stories help us hear with fresh ears the ways God is moving in our midst?  

  • How do these stories move our hearts to help meet the needs of our congregation?


  • Are you called to adopt, and/or foster a child, but lack the resources or information to begin?

  • Would you like to know more about how you can support families who are called to adoption or foster care?

  • Would you like to know more about how Redeemer’s deacon team can support you in your calling through an adoption grant?
