Welcome them to our community by helping to fill their pantry and closets with household necessities: non-perishable food items, paper products, cleaning supplies, etc. Bring your donations to the bin in the Grace atrium this Sunday, September 18. Also—stop by the table in the atrium on Sunday morning to sign the welcome banner for the Wegners.
