Legacy 685 connects adoptive and foster families with one another through weekly Life Bible Study, monthly and quarterly gatherings, an annual Big Event, and a Biennial retreat for moms. Gatherings are designed to be sacred spaces where parents on this unique journey can make connections and find community. Quarterly and annual events are designed for the whole family to be able to connect with other families, the Legacy 685 staff and volunteers, and have fun!
The Legacy 685 Bible Study gathers each Sunday at The Loop Campus at 9:15a for expository teaching, community and prayer.
For those with a heart for orphaned, adopted, or foster children
Every Sun @ 9:15–10:30a — The Loop (Rm 503)
MOTH is a part of the ministry of Legacy 685, seeking to equip, empower, and encourage foster and adoptive moms on their unique parenting journey. Join us each month at the Cypress, Loop, or Sienna campuses for teaching, fellowship, and connection!

Moms of the Heart provides a retreat every other year for adoptive and foster moms from all campuses in an effort to provide deeper connection and encouragement than what we can achieve in our monthly meetings. Our last retreat was April 9-11, 2021 at the beautiful Hunt Retreat Center.
This year, our word was Abide. Gathering together offers us the opportunity to connect our hearts, process through the year (#2020) and reconnect with Biblical Truths that transform our lives.
We look forward to what our 2023 MOTH Retreat will hold!
The Crossing is a quarterly lunch at the Loop Campus that provides an opportunity for families to break bread together, meet the Legacy 685 staff, make connections with volunteers, and play!
The Big Event occurs annually every Fall to connect families and volunteers from all campuses for a time of food and fun with friends!
Waiting Families is a gathering designed specifically for families who are waiting for their adoption process to finalize. That journey can be long and hard! Find encouragement, like-minded community and joy in the journey!
