Grace will once again participate in the Adopt-A-Family ministry this year.  We are helping two families:  One family is a single parent family with two girls (grades seven and two) and one boy (grade K); the other family has six children (twin boys in K, two girls ages four and two, and twins girls, born in November).  On the slat wall, you will find 8.5 x 11 papers with tear-off edges on the bottom with the ages, grade, and sizes of each child.  The parents have requested that all donations be focused on the children.  We will also be providing some food items for them.  If you prefer to donate food, we ask that you put money in the jar on the shelf in the north entrance, or put your check in the offering marked “Adopt-A-Family.”  The deaconesses will then use it to purchase food so we are not doubling up on particular types of food.  Thank you for helping minister to those in need in St. Paul.
