Grace will once again be participating in the Adopt-A-Family ministry this year.  We are helping two families this year.  One family is a single parent family with four girls, and the other family is a multi-generational single parent family with three children (2 boys, 1 girl).  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.  We would ask if you prefer to donate food, 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 too much on particular types of food.  Thank you for helping minister to those in need in St. Paul.
