Announcements for 8/23

SUNDAY SCHOOL STAFF MEETING: Next week Sunday, August 30, following the worship service there will be a meeting at 11:45 AM outdoors (weather permitting), near our side office door entrance. Bring a camp chair or get a chair from the chapel and join us as we plan to begin this year’s Sunday School program. We are planning to start the first Sunday of October, after giving schools a month to get started with their plans. Hope to see you there to hear your ideas and input to get us off to a successful start!

ENDING SOON:  There are only a few days left to donate SOCKS, UNDERWEAR, AND SCHOOL SUPPLIES for the children in need at Harry Abate Elementary School in Niagara Falls, one of our inner city grade schools.  They continue to have a great need for these items and have already received numerous requests for help related to the economic changes many families have experienced during the pandemic.  Please remember this mission as you are out shopping, and bring your gifts to our donation tables by the end of August.  THANK YOU to those who have already donated!

OUR LOCAL FOOD PANTRIES need our help.  Community Mission has reported that they are serving DOUBLE the number of meals compared to last year due to the impact of the pandemic.  The Salvation Army has already served 4 TIMES the number of meals that they served for the whole 2019 year.  SPECIAL MISSION ENVELOPES for July & August are designated to support these two pantries, as well as Niagara Gospel Rescue Mission, and Heart, Love & Soul.  Your donations in the Special Mission envelopes from your packets, or the Special Mission option online, will be donated directly to these local agencies.  Thank you for your generosity in helping our neighbors.

ALTAR FLOWERS can be ordered by signing up on the flower chart located in the narthex, or calling the office.  Cost for a centerpiece is $45 , or you can choose two vases at a cost of $56.                         

PLEASE UPDATE YOUR EMAIL:  If you are not currently receiving email messages from Grace and would like to, please contact the office with your current email and you will be added to the list.  Also, be sure to keep your email up to date with the office if you make a change.

NO EMAIL?  If you do not have or do not use email regularly, please let the office know.  We want to add you to our list of members that do not have or use email access so that we can keep you up to date when time-sensitive or urgent notices are sent out electronically.
