Announcements for the week of March 20, 2011

Please join us on Wednesday at 6:00pm for a Simple Supper before the 7:00pm Lenten Worship Service. This week’s dinner will be hosted by our Adult Choir.

Giving Back to Military Families – Volunteer(s) are needed to help out in the youth room at a reintegration weekend for families of the 827th. This weekend is put on for military families who have recently had a loved one return from combat. It provides an opportunity for them to socialize in an organized setting with people who understand what they’re going through. This event is at the Buffalo Hyatt Hotel on April 2nd and 3rd. You can serve one hour or several. They will provide games, crafts, snacks, etc. for the youth to enjoy. They just need people to chaperone so that mom and dad can enjoy each other and friends while their children have fun with other children. Please contact the church office if you are willing to help.

We are excited to announce that we are going to create a new pictorial directory of our church family. The directory will help us connect names with faces. The scheduled dates for photography are April 27 & 28 and May 18. Look for sign up sheets for sitting times coming soon!

The cardboard box you see in the front of the church this morning is a reminder of the type of homes the majority of people in Haiti have been living in since the earthquake last year. Food for the Poor is our special mission envelope project for March and April. Food for the Poor provides food for over 2 million people EVERY DAY! They also build houses, fund orphanages, aid educational efforts, and dig water wells in countries where poverty is a way of life. Please keep this organization in your prayers over the next couple of months.

LWML will be collecting wrapped bars of soap for Lutheran World Relief. Look for the drop box in chapel area. We will be collecting up to Sunday, April 17.
