Announcements for the week of December 23, 2012

Church Office – Pastor Sorenson will be out of the office this week.

Christmas Caroling – Everyone is invited to join Pastor and the Elders as they go caroling to our Shut ins. There is will a quick soup lunch then we’ll head out about 1:00 pm. Please join us no matter what you’re singing voice may be like. The more the merrier!

Advent Giving Trees – have been set up at both entrances to the church.  This annual Social Ministries project helps us support several agencies in Niagara Falls, including the Magdalene Project (working with homeless women and at risk children), Summit Life Outreach (for teens in crisis pregnancies), Community Mission, and Heart & Soul Food Pantry.  If you can support this project, please take a paper ornament from the tree, purchase the suggested item, and return it to the tree table at either entrance to the church.  All donations will be delivered after Christmas to help during the cold winter months ahead. Hats, mittens, and gloves of all sizes are needed to help the homeless and poor in our community stay warm over the coming winter months.  Please remember your neighbors in need as you are doing your Christmas shopping. Thank you for your generosity!

Little Glimmers of Light – is an easy to read and inspirational book recently published by Rev. Elton Rengsdorf. It contains stories to entertain, inform and enlighten your path. Each book is $14.95 and when you buy a copy, you also make a gift to the LWML. Copies are available from Ursula Zimmerman or Erika Tuscher.

Social Ministries Update –  Your generous donations enabled us to send $925 to the LCMS Eastern District Disaster Fund to aid the victims of Hurricane Sandy on the East Coast.  We were also able to donate $500 to Samaritan Counseling, which was our most recent special mission envelope project.  Our Giving Tree donations will continue to be accepted on the tables in the chapel and narthex through next Sunday.  Thank you for supporting these projects.
