Baby/Toy Drive

Keturah Mission Circle is holding a baby/toy drive this summer in hopes of refreshing the nursery area in the church basement as well as supporting New Beginnings, a ministry out of Milwaukee sponsored by Christian Life Resources.  The mission of New Beginnings is to help a single mother develop spiritually in God's Word, become a responsible citizen in society, continue her education, achieve self-sufficiency, and be a competent and loving Christian parent.  Items to consider donating: changing table, pack 'n play, baby bouncer, and toys (new or gently used).  We are also interested in collecting new diapering items such as wipes, diapers, and onesies.  Monetary donations will also be accepted to aid the New Beginnings mission.  Please place any donated items in or near the box outside the nursery area.  Donations of money can be placed in the church office mailbox.  Keturah Mission Circle thanks you in advance for your generosity!
