What is Knob Noster Baby Grace?
Knob Noster Baby Grace is a ministry of the Knob Noster United Methodist Women. Our Baby Grace motto is “Dry bottoms and smiling faces”. We provide diapers and wipes for children birth to 5 and prayer-and-care support for their families. As our program grows, we will provide more opportunities for the smiling faces.
Where are you located?
The Baby Grace program in Knob Noster is located at 108 S. State St. in the Jubilation Center of the United Methodist Church.
What services does Baby Grace Knob Noster provide?
Welcome bags – On the first visit each family is given a complimentary family ticket to our Second Saturday Community Breakfast along with diapers and wipes. Occasionally, we will have other items available, such as laundry detergent, baby food, and receiving blankets.
Diapers/wipes – Knob Noster Baby Grace provides a bundle of 15-20 diapers, depending on size, and a package of wipes to Johnson County families who find they need a few diapers and wipes to get them through the month.
Spiritual support – Prayer requests are accepted (and acted upon!) at every monthly event. Pastoral support is also available upon request. Our very first participant asked for prayers for his 3-month-old daughter.
