May Serving Focus: Foster & Adoption Families

FPC L.O.V.E. Initiative & Local Missions Celebrating Foster Care Awareness Month

The FPC L.O.V.E. Initiative is dedicated to supporting foster families within the FPC congregation and empowering new foster parents.

At First Presbyterian Church (FPC), our commitment to the fight for orphans in our city runs deep. We believe that together, we can make a difference in the lives of orphans and foster kids in our community. We have dedicated our time, talent, and money to organizations like South Texas Alliance for Orphans and Chosen Care, and we are proud to be leaders among churches in the movement of local, national, and international generosity. This practice is not just a side project for us – it is at the core of our faith and has been stewarded well at FPC for generations. Join us as we continue to fight for those who need our support the most.

Foster Parents’ Day Out

We invite you to serve locally with us at Foster Parents’ Day Out:

Saturday, May 11 from 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM
at First Baptist Church, 515 McCullough Ave, 78205

This event, in collaboration with the South Texas Alliance for Orphans, provides foster kids with a safe and enjoyable space so their foster parents can take a break. Volunteers from both churches will lead activities throughout the morning at First Baptist Church. Background checks are required for all volunteers, so sign up now! Contact Lindsay Selli, lindsays@fpcsat.org, with any questions.

Generous.Life and Generosity:San Antonio presents Hopeful Futures Event

As we look to the future, we are excited to see the intersection of an intergenerational community of generosity led by some young people who are bringing a fresh perspective to the solvable crisis of orphans, foster care, and adoption in our city. This national group is called Generous.Life and has a local presence in San Antonio known as Generosity:San Antonio, led by Brent and Alexandra Blonkvist, who have been championing this community since moving back to San Antonio in 2022 after a decade in New York City.

Generosity:San Antonio welcomes all ages to participate, but they encourage families to join together, with an emphasis on involving the “next generation.” This community aims to put the joy back into generosity, breaking up the transactional nature often present in charitable giving by creating a space for connection and inspiration.

If you’re interested in learning more about Generosity:San Antonio, be sure to reach out to the Blonkvists at bblonkvist@gmail.com. And mark your calendars for the Hopeful Futures event:

Tuesday, May 14 at 6:30 PM
at The Thompson Hotel, 115 Lexington Ave, 78205
