Announcements for the week of April 7, 2013

Announcements

Welcome Mr. Israelson Isidor – Today we welcome Mr. Isidor who joins us representing the Children of Israel Orphanage in Haiti.  Grace Lutheran Church supported his orphanage after it was damaged in the earthquake that struck Haiti.  Mr Isidor will be giving us an update on progress at the orphanage.

Blood Pressure Clinic – Stop by the chapel next Sunday and have your blood pressure checked for free.

Altar Flowers – The flowers on the altar today are given to the Glory of God in loving memory of Tom Tuscher, by the Tuscher family.

Sign Up for a Health Screening – There are sign up sheets at both doors so that you can schedule an appointment for your health screening.  There will also be representatives at the doors to answer any questions you may have.  It only takes 15 minutes and it could improve the quality of your life.  Join us as we work together to be better managers of what God has given us.

Special Mission – Our Special Mission envelopes for April have been designated to support the  COMFORT DOG MINISTRY of Lutheran Church Charities.  The handlers of these specially trained therapy dogs travel with them to crisis situations such as Sandy Hook and Hurricane Sandy.  The dogs are incredibly successful in helping both adults and children cope with the stress they face after these types of disasters.  Lutheran Church Charities has alternate sources of funding for their administrative costs, which means that 100% of your donations will go directly to travel and care expenses for their dogs.

Penny War – Congratulations to our Sunday School for a very successful Penny War.  Our mission project to purchase bed netting to protect African children from malaria raised $1224.25, which will provide for the purchase of 122 nets and save the lives of at least that many children!  Our original goal was to raise $500, so we far exceeded our expectations!  Thank you for your generous support of this exciting project!  God is doing wonderful things among us!
