Mayfest 2014 – Our annual German Mayfest is this Sat. May 17 from 1-7pm at the American Legion on Buffalo Ave. Presale tickets are available today for $10. Volunteers, please drop off your food off by 12. For more information, contact Ursula or Les Zimmerman or the church office.

Baskets for Mayfest – the church will be open this Friday, May 16 from 6-8 to drop off baskets.

Weird Animals VBS – volunteers are needed.  There will be a short organizational meeting after church next Sunday for all who are interested in helping at VBS from July 28 – August 1. If you cannot attend the meeting but wish to help, please let Amy Folmsbee know.  Registration forms for students 3 years old through those in 6th grade in the fall are available on the book nook.

Diaper Rash Cream & Diapers – (especially sizes 3 – 5) are needed by Summit Life Resources on Pine Avenue. This is a Christian based organization dedicated to supporting women through crisis pregnancy situations by providing free parenting classes, counseling, Bible classes, and baby supplies.  A table has been set up in the chapel to receive donations. There are also BABY BOTTLE CHANGE BANKS available for those who may wish to donate change toward their fundraiser.  Bottle banks are due back on Father’s Day.

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.
