JUNE SPECIAL MISSION ENVELOPE donations will go to Camp Pioneer, located on the shore of Lake Erie in Angola and owned by LCMS Eastern District. Camp Pioneer offers daily admission passes including beach access and picnic areas, cottage rentals, camps and retreats for all ages, and special camps for military families, developmentally challenged, foster children, and inner-city youth. They also host many special events and retreats. As you can imagine, keeping our camp and its programs up and running becomes more expensive each year. If you would like to support Camp Pioneer and its mission of sharing the love of Christ, please place your special mission envelope in the offering plate before the end of June.
PLEASE RETURN BABY BOTTLE BANKS: Thank you to all who donated to Summit Life Resources’ annual fundraiser. If you have not already done so, please return your banks to the donation table or give them to Alice Moll by next week so that they can be delivered to Summit.
HELP FLOOD VICTIMS: Our Thrivent Action Team here at Grace is seeking donations from members of socks, underwear, footwear, and outfits for children 10 and under affected by the devastating floods in Fremont, Nebraska. In addition, we will be shopping for items to help these young children who are living in temporary housing shelters. All items will be shipped to them on July 1st. Thank you for your generosity. John Loss

CARING FOR OTHERS is an admirable form of generosity and giving. The desire to care for others wells up from the desire to contribute to the needs of others. Generosity and willingness to share is good work that can honor God. For more information, contact Robert Wirth, LCMS Foundation Gift Planner @ robert.wirth (at) lfnd (dot) org or 716-863-4427.
