Announcements for the week of August 29,2010

Students of All Ages: Please bring your school backpack or bags to church on Sunday, September12 (Rally Day). During the service we will recognize our students and ask of God’s blessings upon them and their backpacks!

Plan to join us for our Annual Rally Day Congregational Picnic, on Sunday, September 12 following the worship service. Hamburgers and hot dogs will be provided, there is a sign up sheet in the chapel for salads and desserts.

We would like to stay connected to our young people attending college either locally or away. Please contact the church office or place a slip in the offering plate providing the name and contact information for your college student.

UNDERWEAR & SOCK COLLECTION: Next Sunday is Labor Day weekend and the last opportunity to donate to our summer Social Ministries project. We are collecting all sizes and types of undergarments and socks. After Labor Day, they will be delivered to Niagara Falls schools and the Community Mission to be distributed to those in need. Please help keep our neighbors warm this winter. Your generosity is appreciated!

Lutheran Campus Ministries is looking for persons interested in serving on their commission. This person should have a heart for college students and a desire to work with the committee for the next two years. They meet 5 times a year. Contact Pastor or the church office if you think this is something you would like to do.

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.

Consider joining us for Breadbakers, a small group bible study that meets the first Saturday of the month at 5:00p.m.

“Equipping to Share”
Pilgrim Lutheran Church (Corner of Delaware Road and Chapel Road, Kenmore) is sponsoring “Equipping to Share,” a four-hour seminar conducted by Lutheran Hour Ministries on how we may more effectively share our Christian faith in everyday situations. The seminar will be held on Saturday, September 18th, from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m., and lunch will be provided. There is no cost for the seminar or the lunch – we want as many as possible to participate! Sign up on the glass case in the Chapel.
