McDonald Memorial Baptist Church launches “Bundles of Joy”
 The “Women on Mission” of McDonald Memorial Baptist Church are beginning a program to aid the parents of newborns. The program is called the “Bundles of Joy Ministry”.
The “Women on Mission” are collecting items to help young parents of newborns. Items such as Destin cream, size 1 diapers, baby powder, baby shampoo, baby wipes, lotion, bottles in a pack of three, pacifiers, bibs, booties, wash cloths, and mittens will be placed in baskets and given to young parents who request them.
The goal of the ministry is to help young parents who need assistance and to open the doors for ministry to these young families.
If you would like to contribute to this ministry, please contact the church at 409-883-3974. Any donations will be appreciated.
