Announcements for the week of May 6, 2012

Heart, Love, & Soul Pantry- During May & June, we will be collecting donations of toilet paper for Heart, Love, & Soul Pantry in Niagara Falls.  Beside food, this is their most requested item.  It is something that is needed everyday, and the cost adds up for those who are struggling to pay their bills and provide the necessities of life for their families.  We have tables set up in the chapel and narthex, and your donations will be delivered to Heart & Soul in July.  Thank you for your help with this project!

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.

Special Mission Envelopes – May and June have been designated for Habitat for Humanity’s Tornado Disaster Response.  There have been over 330 confirmed tornadoes in the U.S. so far this year, causing much destruction and many deaths.  Habitat for Humanity is helping to repair and rebuild in the hardest hit areas.  Lutheran World Relief calls Habitat their “trusted partner” and encourages our support of their efforts.  Social Ministries has voted to match donations up to $400 so that we can send a significant donation to help our neighbors in the Midwest and Southeastern United States. 

Foundation for Hope – a new class to begin in June. This group is a great way to learn more about the faith which you were confirmed or to learn about the faith which conquers anything the world can throw at us. Topics covered will be: the Bible, God and Creation, Angels and Sin, The Ten Commandments, Jesus Christ, The Work of the Holy Spirit, Forgiveness of Sins, Holy Baptism, The Lord’s Supper, Prayer and the The Last Day. This is the group we recommend to any adult interested in joining our church for the first time. If you know of anyone interested please have them let the church office know. Dates and times will be announced shortly.
