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.

VBS Donation Tree–It’s that time again!! We are preparing for Vacation Bible School, and we need your help! A donation tree has been set up in the chapel. As our teachers and helpers think of supplies they will need, donation suggestions will be added to the tree. If you are able to help, please take a card off the tree, purchase the suggested item, and return it to the tree table the next Sunday. The name and phone number of the person needing each item will be on the back of the card in case you have questions. We will be placing our “wish list” items on the tree from now until July, so feel free to keep checking to see what’s new. Thank you!!
