Adopt-A-Family Program for the Christmas Holidays
Each year, the Episcopal Church Women (ECW) sponsor the Adopt-A-Family Program for the Christmas holidays. Needy families are screened through Family Consultation Services (FCS) and a list of possible gift ideas are suggested and posted on the Parish Advent tree. Parish members pick out an ornament with a specific gift and sign for that item on the family poster in the Narthex. In early December the ECW hosts a Wrapping Party in the Parish Hall with most of the parish participating. With Christmas Carols played by our Minister of Music Richard Whitten echoing through the Hall, the presents are lovingly wrapped and labeled for delivery to the Diocese center in Garden City for distribution in time for the holidays. Through the generosity of Grace Church parishioners we are usually able to provide gifts for several families in need.
