FLOWERS on our altar this morning are placed to the Glory of God, in loving memory of Ron, and our parents (Pastor & Betty Herfurth and Harold & Janet Kroening), and in thankfulness for our Grace family and friends – by the Schulz and Folmsbee families.
FEBRUARY’S SPECIAL MISSION ENVELOPES are designated to support Young Life, a group with local chapters whose purpose is to bring teens to the knowledge of our loving Savior. As with most non-profits, traditional fundraising has become a challenge over the past year because of the pandemic. We have several members that have participated in Young Life activities over the years. Dick Crawford has remained connected with this organization and would be happy to answer any questions you may have regarding their local work. If you would like to support Young Life, please use your February special mission envelope or donate to special missions online at our church’s website.
DO YOU REMEMBER how you felt last year when the pandemic created a run on toilet tissue, and for weeks all we could find was empty shelves? Social media was suddenly flooded with “sightings” of this item, followed by people running to the store to try to knab a package before the shelves were empty once again. It certainly made us appreciate something we had always taken for granted. For our neighbors with financial struggles, buying toilet tissue is often an ongoing issue since it cannot be purchased with EBT cards (food stamps). Tables will be available in the narthex and chapel throughout February to receive donations of toilet tissue for distribution by Heart, Love & Soul. Please consider purchasing an extra package or two during February to help those in need.
THANK YOU for your support of our January special mission. Your generosity has enabled us to support Meals on Wheels of Niagara Falls with a check in the amount of $600. This donation will be used by Meals on Wheels to continue meeting the nutritional needs of our sick and elderly neighbors who cannot prepare their own meals. If you have an interest in becoming a volunteer in the kitchen, or as a cleaner, driver, or server, please contact them at 282-3468 or online at www.mownf.org (click “volunteer”).
