Announcements for the week of May 8, 2011

Let There Be Light – Today we will have a special invitation from the group hosting the “Let There Be Light” conference on September 17th at the convention center in Niagara Falls.
They will be talking to us about a once in a lifetime opportunity to hear from world renowned experts on the truth and accuracy of God’s word particularly in Genesis. It is critical for us to understand that God speaks to us through all of His word – that it all points to God’s plan of salvation through Jesus Christ. So that we can recognize and follow Jesus’ cross. After hearing from them there will be an opportunity to help this important ministry by contributing to the door offering and an opportunity to learn more by visiting their informational table in the Chapel area. Tickets for this event will go on sale soon.

Due to an overwhelming response we have added an additional day, Tuesday, May 31 for sittings for our pictorial directory. We will be taking pictures from 2-9:20 p.m. A few sittings have opened up for May 18 as well. Check the sign up in the chapel. This will be the last day to sign up at church, after today, appointments can be made by calling Olin Mills at 1-800-866-2263.

Our SPECIAL MISSION ENVELOPES for May & June are designated for “Friends of the Seminary”, a volunteer group that assists our seminary students who may be struggling to pay bills, or buy necessities like clothing and food. Both Pastor Sorenson and Pastor Gaertner have become the shepherds of Grace directly upon their graduation from seminary. We would like to return thanks for this blessing by offering help to current Lutheran seminary students.
