Announcements for 5/3

MAY SPECIAL MISSION DONATIONS will support Camp Pioneer.  Many of us have enjoyed our church’s beautiful camp on Lake Erie over the years.  Camp Pioneer is still open and has NOT been included in the Erie County closing of campgrounds.  However, they cannot hold large gatherings such as weddings and retreats, which will of course affect their income over the next weeks.  Going forward, their planned activities for this summer may be also affected depending on when groups are allowed to be together again.  Several positive options for the camp’s long term future are being considered.  Our donations are important to help Camp Pioneer weather this difficult time as they consider the choices God is making available to them.  We ask that you prayerfully consider if you are able to help.  If you desire to donate, please mail your special mission donation (clearly marked “Camp Pioneer”) to the office during the month of May.  You may also donate online through our church website, www.gracenf.org.

For what do you want to be remembered in life? For some this is the central question. For the child of God, we want everyone to know Jesus. Do the words of your Last Will and Testament reflect that witness? Your LCMS Foundation Gift Planning Counselor has resources available to help you craft those words carefully, to give to your attorney to include in your document. For help, contact Robert Wirth, LCMS Foundation Gift Planner @ (robert.wirth@lfnd.org) robert.wirth (at) lfnd (dot) org or 716-863-4427.
