Announcements for the week of October 2, 2011

Grace will be hosting a Flu Shot Clinic with Rite Aid on Thursday, October 6. 10: a.m. until 1:00 p.m. Come and get your shot and be prepared for the upcoming season.

Grace Ladies Annual Flea Market and Bake Sale is this Saturday, October 8. With your help, this is our most successful fundraiser of the year. Donations for the flea market can be brought to church this week.
Next week there will be a Blood Pressure Clinic after church in the chapel. Stop by and have your blood pressure checked for free by a registered nurse.

DISASTER RELIEF is still needed after flooding and earthquakes have caused damage to many areas of the northeastern United States–Our LCMS Eastern District disaster relief budget has been called on to help this nearby region. They have provided help to several congregations affected by the recent earthquake and hurricane flooding that occurred in New York, Pennsylvania, and New England. We have designated our Special Mission envelopes for October and November to help our neighbors recover from the damage they experienced.

Let There Be Light Conference
T-shirts are available at Grace for $10. Additional donations still gratefully accepted to help defray the cost. Please contact Mark Binkley.

Pictorial Directory Update- Our directory is well on its way to being complete. The only pages we need pictures for are “unavailable”, “Military”, and “In Loving Memory”. If you have any pictures for these pages please submit them to the church office of place in Ron & Jane Schulz’s mailbox by next Sunday, October 9. We plan to have our church directories between Thanksgiving and Christmas.

The Niagara County Diabetes Education Program will hold its next meeting on Tuesday, October 4th at 7:00PM at Grace. The evening’s program will feature Valerie Hasely, the Niagara County Project Coordinator for Border Community Service at Niagara University. Her topic is entitled “Preparing Makes Sense: Personal Preparedness for You and your Family.” Attending participants will receive first aid kits. This program is pertinent to individuals with chronic illnesses as well as the general public, especially with the past events of the recent WNY earthquake, Hurricane Irene, and the forthcoming winter weather. The meeting is open to the public. Maria Wolcott, RN, CIPT, is the program director. For further information, please contact 283-9034. Coffee will be served.

Lutheran Campus Ministry needs Dinner Help in support with its missions to college students. The first Wednesday of the month we would need you to provide a dinner for about 25 people before our evening worship. It will need to be there by 5:45pm each Wednesday. You can cook it there or bring it. Other Wednesdays we still need dinner, but only for up to 10 people. If you could stay during the 6-7pm hour, that would be great but you wouldn’t need to be there the whole night. Pick a Wednesday and contact Jeff at 833-6950 or by email office@lcmwny.org
