Newborn Baskets

An outreach for new mothers

About our Newborn Baskets

Our newborn basket outreach is for expecting mothers. We want to be able to hand each mother a laundry basket full of items to help them with their newborn babies. Since this is a need all year round, we will be collecting items all year long. We are also filling up baby bottles with money/change that we will be collecting on Resurrection Sunday. We will also be holding a community baby shower for Jesus to collect items for putting together baskets. Date is TBD.
