FLOWERS on our altar today are to the Glory of God and in praise and celebration for the 100th birthday of Crystal Michel (November 28th) from family and friends at Grace, God’s continued blessings.
TURKEY & HAM donations will continue to be accepted for two more weeks, until December 13. Donations are needed to help our local soup kitchens provide holiday meals for our neighbors in need. They can be stored in our downstairs kitchen freezer. If you need help carrying your donation, an usher will be glad to assist you.
IF YOU ARE LIVE-STREAMING and you would like to donate a turkey or ham, you can arrange a drop off time by calling Erin in the office. We are also accepting gift card donations from grocery stores, Walmart, & Target, which the soup kitchens can use to purchase the items they need to serve our neighbors in need.
TODAY IS THE LAST SUNDAY to support LCMS Disaster Response, our November special mission envelope agency. Lutheran Emergency Response Teams (LERT) continue to aid the victims of the many disasters our country has experienced during 2020, including massive wildfires, unprecedented numbers of hurricanes, flooding, and tornadoes. The rebuilding process will take years. If you would like to use the convenience envelopes located in the pews, please mark them clearly as “November Special Mission”. You can also donate online today or tomorrow by clicking “Special Missions”.
ADVENT GIVING TREES are now available in the narthex and chapel. If you would like to participate in this project, please take a tag (or tags) from the tree and bring the item (unwrapped) back to the table as soon as you are able. We are supporting four agencies this year, including Heart, Love, & Soul, Summit Life Resources, Gospel Rescue Mission, and the Magdalene Project. All donations will be used locally to help those in our community who are struggling.
THANK YOU for your generous donations to our special mission envelopes to support St. John & Holy Ghost Lutheran Schools. We were able to send a check for $1100 to each school to aid them in their efforts to provide a quality education in a Christian environment.
“EXPLORING THE LUTHERAN FAITH” CLASS will be offered on Sunday mornings following worship beginning December 6. Childcare is available following the same guidance as Sunday School. If you are thinking about membership at Grace, this is the class you need. Members are welcome to come and get a refresher. Please register in advance by contacting the office.
