Welcome, Baby Gunnrik!

Matthew, Annalee, and Baby Gunnrik will be honored at a small reception shower after service on Sunday, July 23.

If you're able to "shower" this sweet little one, born in May, we encourage you to write a blessing in a beloved children's book, either new or used (instead of a card). The family would also appreciate baby toiletries and boy clothes sizes 9 months and larger. Thanks for showing your support to our littlest Grace friend!
