Announcements for the week of February 24, 2013

Young Life – Today we welcome Kevin Kulikowski to talk to us about starting a Young Life chapter in the Wheatfield area. Young Life brings the good news of Jesus Christ into the lives of adolescents with an approach that is respectful of who kids are and hopeful about who they can be.

Meeting After Church – There will be a short meeting after today’s service for anyone interested in helping with VBS this summer.  There will also be a Sunday School teacher’s meeting following the VBS meeting to plan for Easter.

Penny War –This year’s Penny War is raising money to buy bed netting to protect children in Africa from mosquito bites that cause malaria.  One child dies every 60 seconds in Africa from this flu-like illness.  Our goal is to raise $500, which will provide 50 bed nets and save at least 50 children’s lives.  If you want to donate to our project, you may give your donation to a Sunday School student, or place it in the Penny War container located next to the bed netting display in the chapel. 

Social Ministries Meeting -There will be a Social Ministries meeting after church next Sunday.  We normally meet on Wednesday evening, but have moved this meeting because of Wednesday night Lent services.  New members are welcome!

2013 Flower Chart- the new Flower Chart is posted in the narthex. If you would like to donate flowers for a particular Sunday, just write your name alongside the date. You can order a centerpiece for $37.00 or two vases for $45.00.

Lenten Devotionals – are available on the glass case. Please feel free take one.

Special Mission – LADD (Lutheran Association for the Developmentally Disabled) is our designated mission for February.  LADD is a local Lutheran organization that provides special camps, programs, and funding for individuals with disabilities.  As an example, when a developmentally disabled couple from Grace needed handicapped accessible transportation to attend our church services, LADD provided the necessary funding each week.  Many of our members help to raise funds by working at the LADD Shop on Buffalo Avenue.  If you wish to support this mission, please place your donation in the Special Mission Envelope found in your envelope box.

Niagara Hospice Bouquets – If you would like to place a bouquet on the altar on Mar. 10 please give your name and $8 to Jane Schulz (or place an envelope in her church mailbox) by Sun. Mar. 3. You may take your bouquet home after worship service. The money raised will go to support the important work that Niagara Hospice does.
