Announcements for the week of May 13, 2012

Spring Fest – is coming up Saturday, June 2 at the American Legion on Buffalo Avenue. Tickets are $10 and are available for before and after church and during the week from the church office. There will be a short meeting next Sunday after the worship service for all volunteers. If you are interested in helping see Ursula Zimmerman.

Sky VBS – registration forms are available on the book nook in the chapel. Register early! Space is limited and you won’t want to miss the fun!

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 bay 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!

Grace Ladies are having a Pizza Party and Game Night on Tuesday, May 22 at 6:00 pm. There is a sign up sheet in the chapel.

Ascension Day Worship Service is next Thursday, May 17 and we will have our Annual Chicken BBQ fellowship dinner before the 7:00 pm Worship Service. See the sign up sheet in the chapel for salads and desserts.

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.

German Heritage Weekend will be celebrated at Das Haus Museum, 2549 Niagara Rd., Bergholz, on Saturday, May 19 from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m., and Sunday, May 20, 1 to 4 p.m.   If you have any “German blood,” now is the time for you to find out more about your roots.  There will be a special exhibit about Germany, and the scrapbooks received from the Roland Camann Estate will be available for the public to use.  Das Haus concentrates on the story of the Old Lutherans, as well as Germany as it was when the immigrants left it, and as it is today.    For more information, call Wilma Lass at 731-9905.
