Stand Sunday (September 13)

Supporting Foster and Kinship Families

Tasmanian Baptists are committed to supporting foster and kinship caring across our state. Churches and pastors have now received their Stand Sunday Kit. Stand Sunday celebrates foster and kinship caring by Christian families. Use that Sunday to celebrate those already fostering as well as those stepping out.
