The vision of the University City Church of Christ is to equip God’s family to seek and save the lost, and to live holy lives by His Word.
University City is a supporter of the work of Christian Family Services of Gainesville.
The mission of Christian Family Services, Inc. (CFSI): “Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world” (James 1:27, NIV). CFSI therefore, operates for the purpose of providing Christian social services to individuals, families and children, regardless of race, religion or national origin, in psychological, social and economic distress.
Specifically, these purposes include:
- Placing infants and older children for adoption.
- Providing services to pregnant women and children.
- Providing counseling to individuals, couples and families.
Every homeless child should have the opportunity of permanent placement, and prior to placement, each child should have the best and most stable care possible.
CFS will provide counsel, community resources and support to women experiencing an unplanned pregnancy. Woman are given options for their pregnancy, including education on adoption. If an adoption plan is chosen, CFS provides financial assistance as provided by Florida Law.
