Announcements for the week of March 9, 2014

Social Ministries Meeting –  There will be a meeting of the Social Ministries committee after the service today.  A light lunch will be served.  New members are welcome.

Singing Saints Concert -The Saint Paul Lutheran High concert choir from Concordia, Missouri, will present a concert of sacred music here on March 12th at 6:30 PM.  Please consider joining us.  An offering will be gathered for the choir’s expenses.
Grace Ladies Antique Night – Tuesday, March 25, from 6-8. Cost is $3.00 for up to 2 appraisals, dessert and tea or coffee. All proceeds will go towards the church organ fund. Come and bring a friend!
Upgraded Sound – Thanks to the crew who installed an upgrade to the sound system. Recordings of the service on DVD and Facebook will now feature much better sound!
Join us on Facebook – Grace Lutheran Church has a page on Facebook where we share Sunday’s sermon as well as announcements. If you “Like” our page Facebook will send our announcements to your homepage. Last week our posts reached 724 people on Facebook. Help get the word out by joining us!
New Bible Studies at Grace – Marriage and Family is being offered on Sunday mornings at 9am. The Gospel of John will be offered on Thursdays at 7pm starting Feb. 27. Come join us for one or all!

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!
Niagara Hospice Spring Bouquets – The 27 Niagara Hospice Spring Bouquets on our altar this morning are given to the Glory of God and in appreciation of the work of Niagara Hospice by the following individuals/families: Boyd, Burns, Coleman, Crawford, Folmsbee, Gallen, Gilmore, Herbst, Kelly, Kumm, Luick, Majka, Markel, Michel, Mills, Moll, Peploe, Reed, Reisig, Schulz, Snider, Stenzel, Storey, and Tuscher. Thank you for your support. You may take your bouquets home after worship this morning.
Special Mission Envelopes – March special mission envelopes have been designated to support our Penny War.  This year we are raising money to purchase special “straw filters” for children in third world countries.  These unique straws filter both dirt and diseases from the water.  They cost $10 each, and will provide pure drinking water for the child for one full year.  Each $10 donated will save one child from water-borne diseases for the next year, while work is done in their community to provide a permanent clean water source.
