What is Emmaus127?

Emmaus127 is the Adoption & Foster Care Ministry of Emmaus Church. It was established build awareness of the great need for care for vulnerable children and families, engage families in foster care and adoption, and support families who are directly caring for vulnerable children in their homes.

The Bible is incredibly clear about just how much God cares for the vulnerable: He sees them, knows them, and calls His church to care for them. With Emmaus127, we hope to see more people entering into the faithful care of orphans and vulnerable children through adoption and foster care!
