Announcements for the week of February 2, 2014

Annual Church Meeting – was held last Sunday. Copies of each Board’s Report can be found on the glass case.

May Fest 2014 – there is a planning meeting after worship on Feb. 9th. If you are unable to attend, but want to help, please see Les or Ursula Zimmerman.

Toilet Tissue Collection-A table has been set up in the chapel to accept donations of toilet tissue during February and March for Heart, Love, & Soul.  Beside food, this is their “most-asked-for” item.  It is something that is needed everyday, and something most of us take for granted.  If you are able to help, please remember to buy an extra roll when grocery shopping during the next couple of months.  Your donations will be greatly appreciated!

February Special Mission Envelopes – have been designated for the Lutheran Church (LCMS) Disaster Fund.  LCMS responded to multiple disasters during 2013, including the Colorado fires and floods, Oklahoma tornadoes, Texas explosion, and Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines.  While we have gone on with our lives, our brothers and sisters are still trying to put their lives back together.  Costs to LCMS for helping these and other communities is expected to top out at over $3.4 million.  Our help is needed if LCMS is to continue to aid in recovery and

rebuilding efforts.  If you wish to donate, please place your mission envelope in the offering plate during February.  Social Ministries will match total donations up to $175.

Yellow Dot Safety Program–Forms have been received from the Niagara County Sheriff’s Department and are available on the book nook.  Pick up one for you and everyone who regularly rides in your car.  Fill out the basic information asked for and keep the forms in your glove compartment.  Place the “YELLOW DOT” sticker on the back (passenger) window of the driver’s side, where it will alert first responders that there is helpful information available for them in your glove compartment.  It will mean a big head start on taking proper care of you and notifying family members in the event of a car crash.  Help our first responders help you!

Niagara Hospice Spring Bouquet Sale – We are again participating in the Niagara Hospice Spring Bouquet Sale. The bouquets are $8.00 each. Your order and money may be given to Jane or Ron Schulz any Sunday in February. The presale order deadline is Feb. 26 with delivery the week of March 3. The bouquets will be placed on our altar Sunday, March 9, and you may take yours home after the worship, or call the church office for a pick up time.
