Announcements for the week of June 20, 2010

There will be a Congregational Voters’ Meeting next Sunday, June 27th. We have several large projects that are coming up in the near future that need to be voted on. Please plan on attending. The insert included in today’s bulletin lists the specific projects to be discussed.

Yo Youth: Join us at Pastor’s house on June 29th at 5:30 pm. We’re going to cook dinner over the fire (EAT), talk about God’s plans for us (DEVOTION), and talk about what kind of things we would like to do as a group (PLANNING). Then we will walk together to the concert at Artpark (EXTRA FUN – Tuesday in the Park featuring America). Any adults interested in helping with the youth are invited to stay. Sign up in the chapel or send a text (799-7356) or email pastor (at) gracenf (dot) org to pastor. His home address is 345 Rudlen Rd.
Our special mission envelopes for June are designated for Papyrus Camp at Camp Pioneer. This is a special camp reserved for foster and inner city children. It is the opportunity of a life time for these special children, and may be the only opportunity they have to learn that Jesus loves them. It costs $390 to send one child to this camp for a week. If your prayers move you to help with this project, please place your mission envelope, or an envelope marked “Papyrus Camp”, in the offering plate. You can watch our progress on the bulletin board in the narthex.
TOILETRIES AND STUFFED CHARACTERS: “We will continue to collect toiletry items and stuffed characters on the tables in the narthex and chapel through the month of June.” These items are needed by both Carolyn’s House and the Community Mission. Carolyn’s House provides housing and career training for homeless women and their children in Niagara Falls. Many of these individuals are escaping domestic violence situations and have no where else to go. Community Mission has recently experienced an increase in the homeless seeking their help. Your donations will help make this project a success!
Vacation Bible School will be held August 2-6. We’ll start with a simple supper at 5:30 p.m. and the VBS program from 6-8. Many people are needed to make this another successful year. If you would like to help, please contact the church office or Randy Broeker.

More BOTTLES AND CANS please. Thanks so much for bringing to our recycle bins at parking lot door and narthex. The month of June our recycle profits will go to Kaitlyn Sorenson who will be attending the National Youth Gathering this July with youth from Holy Ghost, Bergholz and Trinity Lockport.
