Bundles of Joy
The Bundles of Joy project started in 2008 as a Lynnewood Outreach project, and it has grown to see participation from many churches in the Tri-Valley as well as from individuals, and community groups. This is an on-going project; our goal has been to provide 14 bags per month to Axis. We estimate that each bag contains $50-$75 worth of baby care items. This project serves local families that are struggling to provide for the very basic needs of a newborn. For many of these families the items received are the only new items they will get for their newborn. The Axis clients are thrilled to receive these gifts and truly appreciative.
We believe that babies are a blessing and that each birth should be a joyful celebration. Please help us continue to welcome these babies into the world and show them what a caring community we are. All donations are gratefully accepted and so appreciated by the families receiving them. Donations may be left in the narthex or given to Kristin or Heidi. If you have any questions please contact the church office.
