Announcements for the week of November 10, 2013

Reception – Next Sunday, Nov. 17 after the service, we will have a cake reception to honor Lee Traver’s retirement as our organist.  Lee faithfully served our congregation and the Lord with her musical talents for 24 years.  We hope you will join us as we celebrate her talents and thank her for her faithful service.

Reminder – there will be a Social Ministries committee meeting after church in the Ladies’ Lounge.  A light lunch will be provided.  New members are always welcome.

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.

November Special Mission Envelopes – November has been designated for “Food for the Poor”.  This organization can use a $43 donation to feed a starving child in Latin America or Haiti for a whole year.  A donation of $14 will feed a hungry family for one month.  The people they help are some of the poorest people in our world today.  If you wish to help them feed the hungry, place your special mission envelope in the offering plate during November.
