Mayfest 2014 – Our annual German Mayfest is planned for Sat. May 17 from 1-7pm at the American Legion on Buffalo Ave. Many volunteers are needed to make this another successful year.

“Weird Animals” is coming to Grace – At this year’s Vacation Bible School, kids will learn that even when they feel weird, left out, or different, they can count on Jesus.  His love is “one of a kind.”  VBS will run from July 28 through August 1, from 6 – 8 pm each night.  Registration forms will be available soon.

Beautify Niagara Clean Up Day – May 3 starting at 8:00 am.

Special Mission – Our Special Mission envelopes for April have been designated to support the Niagara Gospel Rescue Mission on Ferry Avenue in Niagara Falls.  This mission serves three meals a day, 365 days a year to the homeless and needy men, women, and children of Niagara Falls.  They also provide safe overnight shelter and showers for homeless men, as well as job and skills training.  Their mission statement: “The Niagara Gospel Rescue Mission seeks to glorify God by bringing the gospel of Jesus Christ to the poor, afflicted, and needy as we attend to their basic human needs–demonstrating His love, mercy, and grace.”
