Announcements for the week of August 11, 2013

Sunday School Staff – will have a brief organizational meeting immediately following the 10:30 am service next Sunday, August 18 in the Ladies Lounge.

Grace Ladies Picnic – all ladies are invited to attend the annual Summer Picnic this Tuesday evening at 6:00 pm at the home of Erika Tusher.

The Magdalene Project – in Niagara Falls has been designated as our August special mission. The Magdalene Project works out on the streets of our inner city, reaching out to homeless women, many of whom have been forced into prostitution, providing  food, basic hygiene items, and reassurance of God’s love for them. The Project also provides an after school program for inner city children who are under supervised or neglected by their parents, providing shelter, snacks and structured activities that keep them off the streets. If you wish to support the Magdalene Project, place your donation in the special mission envelope during August. If you’re interested in volunteering to help with the after school program, please speak to Pastor.

Attention All Painters: We are looking for volunteers to help paint the outside windows. If you

can help, please contact the church office.

The Gospel of John – will be the basis for a Bible Study on Thursday evenings beginning September 5 at 7:00pm. Reverend Brese will build on the study begun last year and move forward to its conclusion. All are welcome to bring guests to the Ladies Lounge.

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.

Young Life Golf Tournament – Young Life is sponsoring a golf tournament with live and silent auctions on Monday, September 16 at River Oaks Golf Club on Grand Island. Cost is $150 per player and includes lunch and dinner. If you would like to be part of a foursome, just let the church office know. Dinner only tickets may be purchased for guests.
