Adoption & Foster Care Ministry

Tapestry is the adoption and foster care ministry of Irving Bible Church. It is a place of loving, supportive, and authentic community where we encourage and equip families along their adoption and foster care journey. We know that the journey truly begins when a child is welcomed into a family, and we provide relevant information and resources through our Empowered to Connect parent training to equip families for the journey of building trust, restoring hope and relational healing.

Parent Training

Empowered To Connect

Empowered to Connect equips parents with a holistic understanding of their child's needs and development while empowering them with the tools and strategies to effectively meet those needs, build trust, and help their child heal and grow.

    Wednesday Nights

    We all need someone to lean on. That is especially true for those who foster, have adopted, or who are waiting. Join other like-minded parents for a time of connection and sharing. Our support groups are open to any adoptive, foster, and those waiting to be parents. All of our groups meet between 6:30-8 p.m. at IBC.

    There is ministry programming for children from birth through middle school on Wednesday nights. Registration is required for children birth through age 5. You must register no later than 5 p.m. on the Monday (48 hours), preceding the group you plan to participate in. Due to limited space, KidZone will not be able to take children who have not registered in advance. Check tapestryministry.org for details and meeting locations.
