First Thursday of the Month: Chosen Short Devo
Hi, friends of Chosen. We're still here! We want to offer a short time of inspiration and prayer this Thursday (and the first Thursday of each month going forward). Join us this Thursday, Oct. 1, from 8:30 to 8:50 p.m. https://us02web.zoom.us/j/87432275097
We'll hear an inspirational message from Joni Eareckson Tada, recorded recently at the Christian Alliance for Orphans (CAFO) conference. We'll also spend some time praying for vulnerable children and their needs.

Easter Basket Project
Celebrating everyone's generosity and those who volunteered to create over 100 Easter Baskets for the Children’s Advocacy Center of Collin County. These baskets will bless the surge of new children in the past few weeks. CACCC’s mission is to provide safety, healing and justice for children victimized by abuse or neglect in our community.
Each child will receive a fun-filled basket that will include a toy/game/book and Easter candy treats and a tooth brush/toothpaste.
One goal of this ministry is raising awareness regarding the need for families in our area to serve as foster and adoptive parents to children locally and internationally.
There are a number of families currently in Prestonwood Baptist Church that have adopted or currently foster children or are pursing adoption and foster care. This ministry provides support for these families as well as education to deal with the unique nature of foster care and adoption.
As part of this ministry we pray for these families, in addition to, children that are currently awaiting adoption or are in foster care.
There are many families that support foster and adoptive children that are not connected to a local church. Through events, reach out to those families and connect them to the life of Prestonwood.
