Announcements for the week of May 4, 2013


Pastor Accepts Call to VA – Pastor Sorenson has accepted a call to serve at the pastor of St. John’s Lutheran Church in Farmville, VA.  His last sunday at Grace will be May 11th.  If you have anything that requires pastoral attention or you have questions please call or come in to meet with him.

Social Ministries – will meet today after church.  This is our last meeting until September.  New members are welcome.  A light lunch will be served.

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. If you can help, a sign up chart is at the book nook in the chapel. Pre sale tickets are available now for $10. For more information, contact Ursula or Les Zimmerman or the church office.

Weird Animals VBS – registration forms are now available on the book nook.  Early registration is appreciated as we begin to plan for supplies and helpers.  Completed forms can be dropped off or mailed to the office, or handed to Amy Folmsbee.

Special Mission – Isaiah 61 Project of Niagara Falls is our special mission for May.  This is a local organization that teaches construction trades to the unemployed by renovating abandoned homes in the inner city of Niagara Falls.  They put people to work in our city, and at the same time change abandoned buildings into homes and offices.  Their name comes from a verse in Isaiah, “They will rebuild ancient ruins, they will restore formerly deserted places.”  If you want to support Isaiah 61, place your special envelope in the offering plate during May.

VBS Meeting -There will be a short organizational meeting for Weird Animals VBS after church on May 18.  Volunteers are still needed.  If you are interested joining our “zoo crew” this year, plan to attend this meeting or speak to Amy Folmsbee.
