Grace will once again be participating in the Adopt-A-Family ministry this year.  Our family is a single parent family with three boys.  On the slat wall, you will find 8.5 x 4 papers with tear-off edges on the bottom with the ages, grade, and sizes of each child.  The parent has requested that all donations be focused on the boys.  We will also be providing food items for them.  We would ask if you prefer to donate food, that you put money in the jar on the stool at the back of the sanctuary, 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.  We plan to purchase food that the oldest boy can prepare after school while the parent is at work.  We would also like to purchase some family games that the boys can play.  Thank you for helping minister to those in need in St. Paul.
