Grace Ladies are having a Fall Bazaar and Bake Sale this Saturday, November 19 from 10-3. A chowder lunch will be served from 11-1.

There will be a Congregational Voters’ Meeting on Sunday, November 27. The Budget will be discussed and we will elect a Congregational Lay Delegate to represent us at the District Convention in Buffalo on June 15-16, 2012. The newly elected lay delegates will meet briefly on Tuesday, Nov, 29. This year only delegates to the District Convention are eligible to attend the National Convention. Please use the weeks leading up to the meeting to prayerfully consider nominations for this position. See Pastor if you would like more info.

CAN YOU HELP? We need to use some of our old white confirmation gowns as angel costumes for the Sunday School Christmas program this year (our angels are growing!). If you can take one or two of them home this week and wash and iron them, please see Laura Lehning or Amy Folmsbee in the chapel after the service. Thank you!

Attention Ladies: Everyone is invited to join the Grace Ladies next Tuesday, November 22 for a Wine and Cheese Get-Together. Bring a sample of your favorite wine and cheese to share, and a little something for show and tell.

Youth Group Movie Night November 19th at 6:30 PM there will be an opportunity to check out the movie To Save a Life with other young people from the Buffalo area. They will be meeting at First Trinity Lutheran Church in Tonawanda to watch the movie and share some food. If you would like a ride please speak to pastor.

Advent is just around the corner and we are looking for groups and/or individuals to help sponsor a “Simple Supper”. Simple Suppers will start on November 30th are served on Wednesdays in Advent at 6:00p.m. before the Worship Service at 7:00. If you are interested, contact the church office or tell Pastor.

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.

The flowers on the altar are given to the Glory of God in loving memory of Earl and Arlene Luick, by daughter Kathy, Eric, Stephen and family.
