Announcements for the week of October 26, 2014

TODAY IS OUR TRUNK OR TREAT EVENT from 4 – 5:30 PM.  It’s not too late to bring your car and join the fun.  There will be free gifts, donuts and cider, and lots of treats.  The Niagara County SPCA will be joining us with their animals, as well as the Greyhound Rescue and Adoption group.  Hope to see you there!

Attention parents:  On Sunday, November 9, our Sunday School students will be dressing in their costumes during Sunday School so that we can take pictures of them.  These pictures are needed for this year’s Christmas program.  Please make every effort to have your children in Sunday School on that day so that they can be included in the pictures.

Fruit of the Vine Fun Raiser will be held at Grace from 6-9 pm on November 8. This will be an enjoyable social event with music, plenty of food and wine tastings offered by two wineries from the Finger Lakes region. Bring your adult children, a neighbor couple or book a date with friends! This is a dress up affair, for ages 21 and older. Tickets are $20 and are available after church from Trish Andrews.

Sunday School Staff Meeting- The Sunday School Staff will meet after worship next Sunday, Nov. 2 to discuss attendance, curriculum and Christmas.

Harvest Food Collection – Our annual collection of nonperishable food items will continue until Thanksgiving.  Each year we use your generous donations to restock our food pantry and to assist the Community Mission and St. Vincent dePaul’s Food Pantry in preparing for the many requests for help they will receive over the holidays.  We are also accepting donations of TURKEYS again this year.  Please remember this project as you grocery shop each week and add an item or two to your cart if you are able.

Lutheran Academy – 1st Annual Fall Gala: this Saturday, Nov. 1 beginning at 5pm.
