What services does Baby Grace Boonville provide?
To provide young mothers with information about our church, resources available to them in their community, and the knowledge that our church is praying for them and their child.
Diapers – Diapers up to size 4 are available.
Clothes/Books/Toys/More – We manage a distribution center where we accept donations of gently loved mother/child items for children ages 0 – 5. Those donated items are made available to Baby Grace families for free at Open Houses. Because all items are donated, we can never guarantee availability of any item. Items commonly found in the distribution center include clothes, books, toys, blankets. You may also find high chairs, strollers, bouncy seats, pack-n-plays, swings, and other similar items.
Baby Grace Camp – Baby Grace Camp – Held every summer, this church camp is designed specifically for Baby Grace families (moms and their children ages 4 and under, dads and their children age 5 and up, and families consisting of two adults with children of all ages). Spots are limited, so applications are accepted in the spring and moms are selected based on their application and space availability.
Spiritual support – Prayer requests are accepted (and acted upon!) at every monthly event. Pastoral support is also available upon request.
