Blessing the UMCOR Layette Kits
On Sunday January 27th, Trinity UMC blessed the layette kits for UMCOR. A clothesline, which was draped across the choir loft and in front of the altar, held about 40 baby sweaters, nightgowns, and baby blankets prepared by Trinity UMC members and friends. During the first hymn, individuals placed additional offerings of diapers, onesies, blankets and wash cloths at the altar. Annette Watters led the congregation in prayer for the mothers and the children who would receive these kits. The kits were also dedicated in memory of the victims at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut.
Items are still needed for the kits, specifically cloth diapers and baby undershirts or onesies. If you would like to make a cash donation toward the project, please deliver it to the church office before the end of March.
