The mission of Swaddling Clothes is to share the mercy of Christ with our neighbors through the gifts of clothing, food, friendship, and the forgiving Word of God.
Open the 2nd Saturday of every month from 9-11am
How does Swaddling Clothes work?
From various donors, we assemble a collection of items associated with pregnancy and motherhood—maternity and baby clothes, diapers, formula, bottles, etc… Then, on the second Saturday of each month, St.Paul hosts a “shopping day” where you can survey our collection and take whatever you need, up to a certain number of items. If any of the items you take can be re-donated to Swaddling Clothes when you are done with them, we ask that you do so to help those in need after you.
We also partner with a number of other organizations, providing you with referrals if you are seeking counseling, health care, employment, etc... And, of course, being a part of a Lutheran congregation, we are always ready to share pastoral care and a Gospel word with those who need them.
The Sanctity of Life
God’s eternal Son began His earthly life as an embryo. And when that embryo was a grown man, He shed His blood for the entire world, including those who were nothing more than a few cells in their mothers’ wombs.
For this reason, God never wants abortion to happen. And, as Christians, one of the greatest ways we can help keep our neighbor far from this temptation is by making pregnancy less frightening.
If you’re frightened that you don’t have the resources to care for the child in your womb or the children outside your womb, we’re here to help.
If you’re scared that you don’t know how to navigate this new part of your life, we’re here to help.
If you’re worried about judgment or rejection, we’re here with God’s word of mercy and hope, a word that no one can take away from you.
Christ loved you from your very beginning. He’ll love you to the end. That’s why we’re here.
