Announcements for the week of August 1, 2010

Vacation Bible School is here! Planet Zoom starts tomorrow with simple supper at 5:30 followed by the VBS program 6-8:00 pm. There are classes for all ages and lots of opportunities for volunteers. If you would like to help out, contact Randy Broeker 731-5687 or the church office 283-1843. Enrollment applications can be found in the chapel.

Thanks goes out to the men who helped taking down and putting up the scaffolding this week!

Looking for another opportunity to better understand what God is doing in your life? An opportunity to get to know other members better? Or just an opportunity to relax in a Christian environment? Please consider joining us for a small group Bible study called Breadbakers. Our next meeting is this Saturday, August 7 at 5pm at the Sorensons’ house. For more information contact the church office.

Our first “Creating Our Future” follow up gathering was held last month. The next two are scheduled for August 19 and 26 at 7:00 pm. Please plan on joining in helping Grace move forward.

Our special mission envelopes for August and September are designated to support Christian education locally. The cost of providing quality education in a Christian setting continues to rise, creating challenges for our Lutheran schools, and making it increasingly difficult for parents who choose this type of educational setting for their children. Your gifts will be donated to the two Lutheran schools closest to Grace, St. John and Holy Ghost, to be used toward their tuition financial aid funds. Several of our congregation’s children attend, or have attended, these schools. If your prayers move you to support Christian education in this way, please place your special mission envelopes in the offering plate.

Underwear and Sock Collection: We are collecting undergarments and socks through August for distribution in the fall. This is one of our most appreciated projects, since very few agencies receive these items. Many of the poor among us consider underwear and socks “luxuries” that they cannot afford and they are so grateful when they receive this clothing to keep them warm. Children’s sizes will be given to those in need at Niagara Falls schools, and adult or infant sizes will be distributed to our neighbors through the Community Mission.

Through the LCEF Joyful Response program our church can receive electronic payments directly from personal bank accounts or LCEF Steward Accounts. It’s simple, safe, convenient, and makes it easy to be a faithful servant when you are on vacation. Interested? Talk to Jon Lehning.

Grace Ladies Annual Flea Market is scheduled for Saturday, October 2. Start saving your good “fleas”.
