Announcements for the week of July 10, 2011

A Congregational Voters’ Meeting will be held after the 10:30 am Worship Service next Sunday. The insert provides a brief job description of the positions to be voted on. For a more detailed description see the info on the glass case in the chapel. Please prayerfully consider how your talents may be used to help move Grace forward.

Today’s BP clinic has been postponed, and will be rescheduled for a later date. Watch the bulletin for an announcement.

Thank you to all who have donated items from the VBS Donation Tree. If you have taken a card, please return the needed item as soon as possible since we are already making decorations for the big week! There will be more items on the tree as we finalize preparations, so keep watching. We appreciate your help!

After this week, we will have enough cardboard tubes for our VBS projects. Thank you to all who took the time to help us by donating this material!

Ladies: Save the date our Annual Grace Ladies Picnic will be held on Tuesday, August 2 at the home of Ruth Kumm. Bring a dish to pass.

Our annual summer Social Ministries project has begun. We are collecting new undergarments, socks, toiletries, and school supplies. All donations will be delivered in September to agencies in Niagara Falls who have requested our help. You can leave your donations on the tables set up in the narthex or chapel. Last year we donated 325 items to local agencies. Your help is needed to make this project a success again this year!!

Our FOOD PANTRY is running low. If you are able to help by purchasing a couple of non-perishable food items, please leave them on the table in the narthex or in the chapel. Thank you for helping our neighbors in need.

Papyrus Camp at Camp Pioneer is our designated project for our July Special Mission envelopes. This is a special camp for inner city and foster children from Western New York who come from neglected or abusive family situations. For many of these children, their week at Camp Pioneer may be the only opportunity they will have while growing up to hear about the love that Jesus has for them. We hope you will support our effort to raise the $450 it costs to send one child to this camp for a week.

EVERYONE IS WELCOME to join the members of Niagara Zone Lutheran Women’s Missionary League as they gather for a potluck supper at Immanuel Lutheran Church, Scott & William Sts., City of Tonawanda, on Tuesday, July 26, beginning at 6:00 p.m. Bring a dish to share and enjoy an evening of fellowship. Following supper, the zone delegate to the recent National LWML Convention will share about the mission work of the LWML and the grants to be funded during the next two years through voluntary offerings.
