Announcements for the week of September 8, 2013

Fellowship Picnic – Please join us after Worship today for our Rally Day Fellowship Picnic.

Congregational Voter’s Meeting with Elections – next Sunday, September 15 after the 10:30am worship the Congregation will vote to elect the following positions, Treasurer, Recording Secretary, Head Trustee and Chairman of the Board of Education. Each position is a two year term. Please prayerfully consider running for one of these positions in the coming weeks. There are sheets on the glass case in chapel describing the duties involved with each position.

Hymn Sing/Choir Practice – There will be a hymn sing held on Wednesdays at 7:15 PM in the chapel for all who are interested in keeping the choir going while we are in search of a new organist.  Why not consider joining us for some music, fun, and fellowship?  Reading music is NOT a requirement!

Grace Ladies Flea Market/Bake Sale – will be held on Saturday, September 21. Good fleas can be brought to the church starting next week.

Special Missions – September and October special mission envelopes have been designated to support Holy Ghost and St. John Lutheran Schools.  The option of Christian education is one that many parents want for their children.  Our donations to these

schools help support their scholarship funds to make this choice a more affordable one.  We have children and teachers at both of these schools.  If you wish to support our local Christian educators in this way, please place your envelopes in the offering plate before the end of October

Altar Flowers – Flowers on the altar are placed to the glory of God by the Schulz and Folmsbee families in thankfulness for our parents, Pastor & Betty Herfurth and Harold & Janet Kroening, who raised us in the Christian faith, as well as the Lutheran schools that provided our children with quality Christian education.

Food for the Poor – wishes to thank you for the welcome you extended to Pastor Bauch on his recent visit to your church. On behalf of our less fortunate brothers and sisters of Latin America and the Caribbean, we thank you for having shared in their lives. They, and you, are blessed by your generosity.

Healthy Congregations Workshop – St. John Lutheran will be hosting a new series called the Healthy Congregations Workshop. Instead of seeing the congregation and its leadership as separate parts, you will see their interrelatedness and how they mutually influence one another. Three Pastors from the Samaritan Counseling Center of WNY will be teaching the sessions. Pick up a brochure on the glass case for more information and sign up.
