What is Baby Grace?
Pleasant Hill Baby Grace is an outreach of the Pleasant Hill United Methodist Church. We provide support to families with young children by providing diapers and other necessities. We also provide foster families with the same services.
Where are you located?
Pleasant Hill Baby Grace is located in Room 200 of the Pleasant Hill United Methodist Church. 1300 Lexington, Pleasant Hill, MO
What services does Baby Grace Pleasant Hill provide?
Welcome basket – All new families receive a welcome basket full of necessities as well as a blanket and burp cloths (if age appropriate).
Diapers/Wipes/Toys/More – Each month, families may come in and get refills on diapers, wipes, diaper cream, and baby shampoo. Diaper packs are based on donations, but usually include:
Newborn – 70 (quantity)
Sizes 1 and 2 – 50
Size 3 – 40
Sizes 4 and 5 – 35
Size 6 – 30
Pullups – 10
Swim diapers may be available upon request. Because all items are donated, we can never guarantee availability of any item.
Baby Grace Camp – Held every summer, this church camp is designed specifically for Baby Grace families (moms and their children ages 4 and under, dads and their children age 5 and up, and families consisting of two adults with children of all ages). Spots are limited, so applications are accepted in the spring and moms are selected based on their application and space availability.
Spiritual support – Prayer requests are accepted (and acted upon!) at every monthly event. Pastoral support is also available upon request.
Are there qualifications to register for Baby Grace?
No! We don’t care how old you are, what city you live in, or what your family situation is. If you have kids between the ages of 0 and 5 and need our help, then we want to help you! Pleasant Hill does not require any family to qualify in order to use our services.
How do I register for Baby Grace?
Registration for Pleasant Hill Baby Grace is not required, but is appreciated so that we can be sure to have the diaper sizes you need as well as plenty of the other items on hand. In order to register, you can just send a private Facebook message to us with the gender of your child/children as well as the diaper size(s) you need. You may also register at one of our events.
When is Baby Grace Pleasant Hill open?
Pleasant Hill Baby Grace is open the 2nd Saturday from 9:00 AM-11:00 AM and the 3rd Thursday by appointment only.
I can’t come on the second Saturday; can I come get clothes/diapers another time?
Because of the nature of our program, it is not possible for us to be available at times other than our regular open houses. The only exception to this is in the case of foster families; if foster children have been placed with you and you need our services immediately, please contact us and we will make every effort to accommodate you.
How can I volunteer with Baby Grace?
Thank you for your interest! Please send me a Facebook message, email, or call the church office and we will work out details with you.
I have donations for Baby Grace. When can I drop them off?
Pleasant Hill Baby Grace has a bassinet in the lobby of the church where you can drop off items. The church is open during regular business hours during the week as well as Sunday mornings.
