Blood Pressure Clinic – Stop in the chapel after the 10:30 service today to have your blood pressure checked for free by a nurse. We offer free blood pressure checks four times a year. The next one is scheduled for October.
Attention All Painters: We are looking for volunteers to help paint the outside windows. If you can help, please contact the church office.
Kingdom Rock VBS – is coming to Grace August 2-9. Many supplies will be needed to make VBS a success. As our “palace staff” identifies items they need, they will be placing requests on the tree in the chapel. If you wish to help us get ready for VBS, please take a tag off the tree, purchase the item, and then return it the next week to the table. Thank you for your help as we get ready to teach our kids to “Stand Strong for God!”
Choir Picnic – this Tuesday at the Schulz’s at 5pm – eating at 6pm. Hot dogs, hamburgers, beverage and s’mores provided. Bring a dish, snack, dessert – sign up the in chapel. Come rain or shine.
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.
Grace Lutheran Youth 14 and up – if you are interested in being part of our Youth Group, we will be kicking off VBS by attending Kingdom Bound 2013 at Darien Lake on August 4. 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.
