Welcome Kits Collection

Throughout Lent, in partnership with Church World Services, our Welcome with Grace Team is collecting kits to help refugees with some of their immediate needs when arriving in a new home. 

You can drop employment, cleaning, or toiletry kits in the collection bins around the church or in the Grace on the Go Trailer.   

Review the lists below to know what to include in each kit.  Please only bring completed kits to the church.
