Announcements for the week of November 7, 2010

Attn Youth (and anyone who like to join in the fun): We are planning on decorating the church for Christmas on Saturday, November 27 at 4:00 p.m.

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

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!

Advent simple suppers start on Wednesday, December 1 at 6:00p.m. We are looking for groups and/or individuals to help sponsor a meal. If you are interested in taking a week, please contact Pastor or the church office.

Grace Ladies will hold their annual Fall Bazaar and Bake Sale on Saturday, November 20th from 10-3. A chowder lunch will be served from 11 until 1. Any donations of handcrafted or baked goods is greatly appreciated.

Eastern District LWML is collecting empty ink cartridges as a fundraiser. There is a collection box in the chapel.
