The Rock Port Ministerial Alliance has launched its annual “Adopt-A-Child” and “Adopt-An-Elder” Christmas program. Applicants should apply this year through Community Services or the Rock Port United Methodist Church.

Qualified families or individuals may apply for adoption now through Tuesday, November 27, at noon. No applications will be taken after that date. (No exceptions.) Call Community Services at 660-736-4646 for an appointment or stop by the Rock Port United Methodist Church from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Organizations or individuals wishing to “adopt” someone may do so by going to the RPUMC starting on November 5.

If you would like more information on this program, call Community Services at 660-736-4646 or Erika at 660-744-2101, or email her at
