May 6, 2022: Grace Knitters gathered for the 16th Annual Baby Shower and present everything they had made during the year to the maternity department nurses of Shore Medical Center in Somers Point.  Tables lined the room, stacked with delicate pink, blue, yellow, green, and white caps, blankets, booties, and sweaters.   Grace Knitters, led by Bettie Cross and her friends, meet weekly at the church to knit and crochet beautiful baby caps, blankets, and other items, which they donate to Shore’s maternity department.  Members of the congregation contribute new clothes, diapers, and wipes for the mothers, as well.   At the event, Bettie told a story about an encounter she had with a woman holding a baby wrapped in a very distinguishable blanket. “She told me it was the only blanket she had for her young daughter and that it was given to her at Shore when her baby was born. I knew it was one I had made and I was so happy to see that it brought comfort to this young mother.”
