Announcements for the week of May 20, 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 after the worship service for all volunteers. If you are interested in helping see Ursula Zimmerman.

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

VBS -There will be a VBS meeting along with the Sunday School teacher’s meeting after church today in the ladies’ lounge.  We will be double checking scheduling and staffing details, and answering any questions you may have.  Anyone interested in helping with VBS this summer is welcome to come to the meeting.

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!

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. This is the group we recommend to any adult interested in joining our church for the first time. Dates and times will be announced shortly.
