Announcements for the week of July 22, 2012

SKY Vacation Bible School -begins tomorrow and will be held each evening from 6 – 8 p.m.  Children who are 3 years old (and potty trained) through those entering sixth grade are welcome to attend.  Registration forms are available today on the book nook.  DOOR REGISTRATIONS WILL BE TAKEN ON A SPACE AVAILABLE BASIS ONLY, so it is best to fill out a registration form today if you have not already done so.

VBS Giving Tree – A BIG THANK YOU goes out to all who so generously donated to the VBS Giving Tree.  It takes many supplies to make VBS a success, and your help is very much appreciated!

VBS STAFF – is reminded to wear your plastic church name tags if you have them available.  Also, there will be a VBS staff party on Friday at Lehnings immediately after VBS closing.  All VBS staff members (and spouse and/or children) are welcome to attend.  Laura says “the pool is open” so bring your suits if desired.

American Red Cross Blood Drive- is this Saturday, July 28 from 10-3.

JULY SPECIAL MISSION ENVELOPES – are designated for Papyrus Camp at Camp Pioneer which is our Lutheran camp in Angola.  Papyrus Camp is a special camp for inner city foster children from Western New York.  These are children who have been taken out of dysfunctional family situations where they have been abused and/or neglected.  Often their week at this camp is the only opportunity these children will have to learn about the love Jesus has for each of them.  Our goal is to raise the $450 needed to send one child to this camp.

SOCIAL MINISTRIES PROJECT FOR JULY AND AUGUST – our annual collection of underwear and socks.  These are items that are in need for the fall and winter months, especially by the school aged children in our Niagara Falls inner city schools.   Our school nurses truly appreciate this project.  There is a box available in the narthex and in the chapel for your donations.    All sizes are welcome.  Children’s sizes are delivered to our inner city schools, and adult sizes are welcomed by the Community Mission.

SAVE THE DATE – AUG 14 – to join the members of Niagara Zone Lutheran Women’s Missionary League as they gather for a potluck supper at St. Peters Lutheran Church, 4169 Church Rd., Lockport, on Tuesday, August 14, beginning at 6:00 p.m. Bring a dish to share and enjoy an evening of fellowship. Following supper, topics include convention report, coming events, a report from our Young Woman Rep Liz Hurst, and the grants to be funded during the next two years through voluntary offerings.
