Announcements for the week of September 9, 2012

Rally Day Picnic – Please join us for good food and fellowship after Worship today!

Confirmation Class Meeting – Sunday Sept 16 there will be a brief meeting after worship, in the classroom adjacent to the parking lot, for all parents and young people who will be participating in Confirmation Class this year.  Pastor and Mrs Sorenson will be leading a discussion on class expectations and requirements.  Parental involvement is one of the most important factors in a successful and exciting confirmation experience.  Please come and learn more about what you can do to make your young person successful.  

New Class – All high school and college kids are invited to a new get together the second Sunday of every month 9-10:15am. We will meet in the Youth room with Mr. Randy Broeker to talk about life, world happenings, and keeping the faith. Plus, there will be breakfast! Our first class was today, we will meet again on October 14. Bring a friend!

Flea Market – Our annual Flea Market is this Saturday, September 15 from 9-3. If you have anything “good fleas” to donate you can drop them off at the church or contact the church office if you

need a pickup. This is our biggest fundraiser of the year and any help is greatly appreciated.

Food Pantry – Our food pantry at Grace is running low on tuna, canned pasta (like “Spaghetti-O’s”), and chunky style soups.  We will begin our annual food collection in October, but if you can help out with a small donation of one of these items in the meantime, it would be appreciated by those who come to us in need.  Donations can be left in the chapel or in the food pantry.  Thank you for your generosity.

Special Missions – Our special mission envelopes for August and September have been designated for the education assistance funds at St. John and Holy Ghost schools.  These funds help families in our area and our congregation afford Christian education as an option for their children.  We have several families that are connected to these schools.  We also have two members on the faculty, with Jane Schulz at St. John and Marla Crawford at Holy Ghost.  Both of these schools provide quality education and are consistently given high rankings by Business First.
