Foster Care
Mark & Denise Strimple

Foster Care and Adoption Support Ministries

Bethel UM Church hosts Clermont County's monthly Foster Parent meal and training session, and also hosts the annual County "Joy of Adoption" celebration.   With key leadership from Denise Strimple, supported by her husband, Mark, the Strimple's example of caring for dozens of foster children in their home has influenced others.  Several parents in this congregation have become Foster or Adoptive Parents through the years.
