Announcements for 9/22/19

FLU SHOT CLINIC TODAY AFTER WORSHIP!  Rite Aid will be here at Grace after worship to provide flu shots.  Most insurances are accepted.  We hope you take advantage of this convenient opportunity to receive your flu shot! 

SEPTEMBER & OCTOBER SPECIAL MISSION ENVELOPES have been designated to support St. John and Holy Ghost Lutheran Schools.  We ask that you include these two local schools in your prayers, and consider donating to help them meet the rising cost of providing a quality Christian education to our students.  We are blessed at Grace to have the option of these schools for our families, especially in today’s world where Christian values are rapidly losing acceptance and behaviors that are clearly contrary to God’s Word are too often celebrated and encouraged.  We currently have member families and teachers at both schools.  Feel free to talk with Marla Crawford, Jane Schulz, or Katelyn Pantano if you have questions about either school.

PURSE MINISTRY:  Thank you for donating toiletry items as well as gently used purses to this project.  A total of 46 purses have been filled and delivered to the Magdalene Project for distribution to the women in need that they work with.  Please see Robin Stephenson if you are able to assist with this project.  Helpers are needed.

Saturday, September 28th 10:00 AM – 12:00 PM: PRE-TEEN YOUTH EVENT (Grades 4-6). Bring a snack to share!  Topics vary as we complete the God can questions of last year and make a final decision on the group name.  Games and craft included. Short parent meeting at 11:40 AM.
