Baby Grace

Baby Grace was started ten years ago by the Buckner UMC to reach out to young mothers who had difficulty financially supporting their new babies. They identified a need and designed a mission plan around it. Faubion has the opportunity to be a branch of this inspiring outreach in the Northland. We will be taking stock of diapers (all sizes), baby cloths, baby supplies (lotion, shampoo, wipes, etc.) and baby equipment (high chairs, walkers, etc.). Baby Grace will only open up once a quarter on a Saturday to allow for restocking. Come be a part of this new, exciting outreach program to the young mothers in our community. Contact Judy Fenster at kcjudyf@aol.com.

Helping Others

Do you have a passion for those who are struggling with burdens…those who are scared in a hospital bed or at home…those who simple need a friend to listen. The Pastor Support Team (PST) allows others to get involved with the ministry of presence – being available for those in need. If your spiritual gifts include, caring and compassion, we need you to support this ministry. Contact Pastor Steve Elkins at (816) 210-1076 or selkin01@yahoo.com.


The first Sunday of each month we collect non-perishable groceries to add to our food pantry. We contribute large quantities to the Lutheran Ministries which supports the Northland. We also keep food on hand as families contact the church with their personal needs. The next collection is coming up this weekend, Sunday, 6/4. Plan to help families in need for June.

Quilting


The Faubion Quilters is a group of ladies who love to quilt. They do quilts for others and the money collected is used for charity and missions projects or to help purchase items for our kitchen or the church. They also quilt donated quilt tops (full size and baby quilts) and send to the Festival of Sharing to be auctioned off each year in October. This year the money from that auction will be used to buy blankets for the needy in Missouri. The quilters meet every Monday from 10 am to 2 pm which includes a sack lunch at noon. All who enjoy quilting, or would love to learn how to quilt, are encouraged to join us.
