Announcements for the week of June 17, 2012

Announcements

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!

VBS Wish Tree –  There are many items that will be needed to make our VBS successful again this year.  We have a “wish tree” set up in the chapel where teachers will be hanging requests for items they need.  More items will be added to the tree as we continue our planning.  If you are interested in helping with this special ministry, please take a request off the tree, purchase the item, and return it to the tree table by the date needed.

Heart, Love and Soul Pantry Last Opportunity –   Next Sunday is the last chance to donate to our toilet paper collection for Heart, Love, and Soul Pantry in Niagara Falls.  This is the “most asked for” item after food.  It is something that we all need every day, and it cannot be purchased with food stamps.  Heart and Soul will appreciate your generosity in this project to provide for our struggling neighbors in need.

Habitat for Humanity Tornado Disaster Relief – ends next Sunday.  Lutheran World Relief has asked us to partner with Habitat to help rebuild areas in the Midwest and Southern United Stated hard hti by tornado damage this spring.  If you wish to donate, please place your Special Mission Envelope or an envelope marked “Tornado Disaster Relief” in the offering plate by next week.  Thank you for your help in rebuilding areas of our country damaged in these terrible storms.

Foundation for Hope- a new class that began this past Wednesday, June 13. 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. It’s not too late to join us.

Das Haus German Heritage Museum – will have special  hours this weekend because of the “Doors Open” program.  On Saturday it will be open from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. and on Sunday from 1-4 p.m.   The international Doors Open program this year is limited to buildings erected before 1900.  Das Haus was chosen because it was built in 1843, and is probably originally built earlier in Lockport to house canal workers.  It is an intricate “garrison style” building with the logs shaped with special angles and sloped so that no pegs or nails were needed.  It is interesting that many of the logs were sawn on two sides, rather than shaped by hand. The museum is located at 2549 Niagara Road, Bergholz, Wheatfield.     Inside, the displays tell the story of the religious refugees who started Bergholz, Walmore, Martinsville, St. Johnsburg, Wolcottsville, and many other mostly rural communities.  Entrance is free, but donations are appreciated.  Groups may visit by calling 731-9905.
