Trunk or Treat –   has arrived!  Today from 4 – 6 PM we will have this fun family activity in our parking lot.  Bring your kids, your relatives kids, your neighborhood kids–all are welcome!  Trick or treat in a safe environment, and enjoy cider, donuts, and some special gifts for the children.  Those participating with their “trunks” should plan to be in the parking lot by 3:45.  See you there!

Harvest Food Collection – Tables have been set up in the narthex and chapel to receive donations of non-perishable food items such as boxed and canned foods.  Your donations will be used to restock our own food pantry at Grace, and extras will be donated to the St. Vincent de Paul food pantry on Military Road which serves families in Niagara Falls.  St. Vincent anticipates helping hundreds of families over the holidays, and you help is needed.  Our collection will continue until Thanksgiving.  

Turkeys –  St. Vincent de Paul food pantry is looking for turkey donations for to help those in need over the upcoming holidays.  Sales are starting!  If you wish to donate a turkey, it can be placed in the freezer in our basement kitchen.  Ask an usher if you need assistance in getting it downstairs.

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.
