Blood Pressure Clinic – stop after the 10:30 am worship today and get your blood pressure checked for free by a registered nurse.

Attention All Painters: We are looking for volunteers to help paint the outside windows. If you can help, please contact the church office.

Adult Bible Class – started a new topic today – Heaven and Hell Join us Sundays at 9:00 am.

Pioneer Camp Annual Summerfest – is next Sunday, July 14. The day begins with worship at 10:30 am, Chicken BBQ from 11:30-3:30 pm, music, entertainment, games, bounce house, beach activities and more! Tickets for the all day event are only $10 for an adult and $5 for children 4-12, 3 and under are free. This is a Thrivent Fundraising Event and all proceeds will benefit the children attending Operation Purple Camp at Pioneer.

Special Mission – As you remember, in April we welcomed Israelson Isidor, head of the Children of Israel Orphanage in Haiti, to Grace as a guest speaker.  He told how great the need is at his orphanage, especially since the 2010 earthquake.  Our Special Mission Envelopes for July have been designated to support First Trinity (Tonawanda) “Hearts for Haiti” program.  All money donated to “Hearts for Haiti” goes toward rebuilding efforts at the orphanage.  Check out the beautiful
children from the orphanage at www.childrenofisraelorphanage.org.  It is sure to touch your heart.
Social Ministries Project – Social Ministries has set up boxes in the narthex and chapel for our annual collection of socks, underwear, and school supplies.  Local school nurses tell us the need among their children is growing greater each year.  School supply lists are long and present a problem for economically challenged families.  And many children go to school each year without socks and underwear, since these are considered luxuries to families struggling to pay for food and utilities.  All donations will be delivered to children in Niagara Falls in September.
Attention Grace Lutheran Youth ages 14 and up – if you are interested in being apart of our Youth Group, we will be kicking off our VBS by attending  Kingdom Bound 2013 at Darien Lake on August 4, 2013. Ticket includes all day park pass and 8 christian music artists including Mathew West and LeCrae starting at 5pm. Please contact Sherry Reed, Justin Smith or Katy Olka.

Altar Flowers – The altar flowers are placed by the Folmsbee’s to the glory of God and in honor of U.S. servicemen, women, and veterans past & present, especially our fathers, Harold Kroening and Bert Folmsbee.
