BABY GRACE PROJECT: Baby Grace Project was a wonderful success in July! We helped 14 families and gave away 505 diapers! On the 3rd Tuesday each month, from 3pm-6pm, we will be giving diapers and baby wipes to those that need a little help with the need for diapers.  Our next date is August 16. This is a community effort! Several churches are donating diapers and baby wipes, and churches are taking turns to provide snacks for the families that come to us for assistance. At this time we are in need of: Newborn & size 5 & 6 diapers; any size/gender pull-ups; and baby wipes. We are following the example of other churches and are also having some baby and children’s clothing and receiving blankets available for these families. We have a donation box in the church annex and monetary donations are also always welcome, Please make checks to “HAMA- Baby Grace”. Our church is the host church for this new project to collect, store, and distribute diapers and baby wipes. If you know someone that could benefit from this program, please share this info. They just need to show up at the designated time. Your prayers for this project are always welcome!

KIDS JAM will not be meeting on Wednesdays this summer. Enjoy your summer vacation! We will begin meeting again on Wednesday, September 7. See you then!


HOLDEN STREET FAIR: August 25-27. Be sure to plan for all the fun and activities.
