Announcements for the week of July 24, 2011

PANDAMANIA VBS begins tomorrow! A simple supper begins at 5:30 p.m. with the program following at 6:00 p.m. We will be learning about how God loves us and cares for us through skits, music, games, crafts, and movies. Come and join us–it’s wild!!

THANK YOU to all who donated the items requested on our VBS donation tree. Your generosity is appreciated and will be a big help in making PandaMania VBS a huge success!

The blood pressure clinic postponed from an earlier date will be held after the 10:30 a.m. service next week, July 31.

A Creation Resource! The ministry of Answers in Genesis has equipped thousands to stand firmly on the Word of God rather than on the ideas of sinful, fallen men. Please join with your fellow Lutherans on September 17, 2011 at the Conference Center – Niagara Falls as Ken Ham (CEO/Founder of Answers in Genesis) and Dr. David Menton supply the necessary tools “to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have.” 1 Peter 3:15b. Volunteers are needed before the event and the day of. See Mark Binkley for tickets or more information.

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. Especially needed right now are peanut butter, jelly, tuna, spaghetti sauce and chunky soups. Thank you for helping our neighbors in need.

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.

PAPYRUS CAMP–next week is the LAST WEEK to donate toward sending a child to Papyrus Camp at Camp Pioneer. We are hoping to raise the $450 needed to send one child to this special camp for inner city and foster children from Western New York who come from abusive or neglectful family situations. Please consider helping a special child by placing a donation in your special mission envelope (or a plain envelope marked “Papyrus Camp”). For some of the children at this camp it may be the only opportunity they have to learn of the love of Jesus.
