Announcements for the week of October 31, 2010

As you are aware, the cholera outbreak in Haiti is developing into a real crisis. LCMS World Relief and Human Care has committed an immediate release of $5,000 to the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Haiti (ELCH) to respond to the needs of Haitians through their local congregations. 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! If you would like more information on the cholera outbreak and how you can help directly go to www.lcms.org

Large print bulletins are available, just ask an usher.

Creating Our Future next meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, November 9. This will be the last one until the new year. It is important to have as much input as possible. Please consider attending even if you haven’t before.

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!
