Legacy 685 connects adoptive and foster families with one another through weekly Life Bible Study, monthly and quarterly gatherings, as well as a yearly Big Event. Legacy 685 also connects pre-placement families with financial resources through the Adoption Assistance Fund.
The Legacy 685 Bible Study gathers each Sunday at the 9:15a hour for expository teaching, community and prayer.
Gatherings are designed to be a sacred space where connections can be made and community can grow.
Hesed - R.C. Sproul Jr. says, “There may be no more significant Old Testament description about how God relates to His people than this Hebrew word hesed. The best translation of this word is ‘loyal love.’ It is a love that is genuine, immutable, and loyal. It is steadfast. It is a word that describes both love and loyalty which are deeply bound together. It is our highest calling to reflect that reality. Our loyalty and love are grounded in our loyal love toward Him who loved us first.” Hesed was created with the heart to nurture marriages as a way of coming alongside couples on the foster or adoptive journey. Through Hesed, couples will have the opportunity to explore steadfast, loyal love in the midst of the complexities of parenting.
Hesed facilitators, Aaron and Hannah Bunker, have walked this journey and have a deep desire to equip and empower couples to live intentionally and steadfastly in every aspect of their lives. Join us once a month at the Loop Campus for dinner, fellowship, and fun! Childcare is provided through Sunday night programming. Registration is required.
