Announcements for the week of May 15, 2011

Creating Our Future Meetings have started back again. We meet this Thursday, May 19 at 7:00 p.m. Everyone is encouraged to join us even if you haven’t attended before.

Grace Ladies will be hosting their annual Potluck Dinner on Tuesday, May 24th at 6:00 p.m. A fashion show will follow with fashions from LADD shop. There is a sign up sheet on the glass case in the chapel.

If you haven’t signed up to have your picture taken for our new pictorial directory yet it’s not too late! Call Olin Mills at 1-800-866-2263 or you can request a sitting time online at www.olanmills.com For those who have appointments this Wednesday, Olin Mills will be calling you to reconfirm your appointment. All calls will come from a 223 area code.

We would like to thank everyone who helped in various ways (setup, clean up, cooking, serving, shopping, promo, tickets sales, etc.) to make the May Fest a resounding success. Everyone had a great time as can be seen by the photo collage in the chapel. We hope to do it again next year!

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.

Attn Youth: Our own Youth Alumni George Baum and Michael Bridges of Lost and Found are performing this afternoon at First Trinity Lutheran Church on Niagara Falls Blvd. We will be carpooling from church leaving at 1:15. Tickets are $5.00 please let Pastor know if you plan on coming so that we have enough vehicles. As always, friends are welcome!

Tickets are $75 and doors open at 7pm. Tickets are available at the theatre box office or call SCC at (716) 743-9117.
