Announcements for the week of October 17, 2010

Creating Our Future Meeting will be held on Tuesday, October 19 this week. Please consider coming to the meeting even if you haven’t attended before. We would like to have as much representation as possible as we go forward with future plans for Grace.

Youth: There is a fun night get together planned for Friday, October 22 at 6:00p.m. at the church. Hope to see you there!

Our FOOD PANTRY collection table has been set up in the narthex. We will continue to accept your donations of non-perishable food items until Thanksgiving. We use your gifts to restock our own pantry, and extras go to our area food banks. The need will be great over the coming holidays, so please remember this project as you do your grocery shopping. Your help is appreciated!

Our Special Mission Envelopes for the rest of this year will be designated to “Hearts for Haiti”. This is an effort by First Trinity Lutheran Church on Niagara Falls Boulevard to raise $35,000 to rebuild a Lutheran church and school damaged in this year’s earthquake. Since the earthquake, there has been no organized educational system in the effected areas. First Trinity sends a group of their members to Haiti annually to minister to the needs of the Haitian people, who continue to be in great need since the devastating earthquake. Each dollar we donate will buy one cinder block for their rebuilding effort!

The Church Basement Ladies are back! Their “Christmas Away in a Basement” will be presented Thursday, November 18th at 2 or 7pm at the Riviera Theatre in North Tonawanda. Reservations and payment are due today. For more information, see Laura Lehning.
