Announcements for the week of March 25, 2012

Today is the last day to order flowers for the altar on Easter. There are order forms in your bulletin or see Joyce Schultz.

Thank you to everyone who came out yesterday for our Spring Cleaning.

Our Annual Spring Fest will be held on Saturday, June 2 at the American Legion on Buffalo Avenue. We need lots of volunteers to make this event successful. There is a sign up sheet on the glass case or see Ursula Zimmerman for more information.

Our special mission envelopes for March and April have been designated to help the Magdalene Project of Niagara Falls. This Christian organization, headquartered at St. George’s Church on Falls Street, reaches out to the homeless and poor. Although they serve all who contact them in need, their special focus is on the homeless and abused woman in our city who have resorted to a life of prostitution to support themselves or their children. They offer food, clothing, and the Word of the Lord as they drive through our streets at night, searching out those in need. They have also started an after school program where young children can feel safe while they learn about Jesus through Bible lessons, crafts, and games. The Magdalene Project is funded through donations and support of the church.

Please come out and support “Bowl for Roswell in Memory of Ernest L. Hoover, Jr.” The $15 ticket price includes two games of bowling, bowling shoes, pizza and pop.  The event will be held at Rapids Bowling Center on April 22 at 1:00 PM following church service.  Thrivent Financial for Lutherans is sponsoring the event allowing all $15 to benefit Roswell.  If you would like to participate or donate to Roswell, please contact Steve Hoover at 523-0347.
