Congregational Church Picnic – will be held on June 10 after the Worship Service. There is a sign up sheet on the glass case for salads and dessert.
Spring Fest – is this Saturday, June 2 at the American Legion on Buffalo Avenue. Pre-sale tickets are available before and after worship and during the week at the church office. Come and bring your friends! For more information, see Ursula Zimmerman for more information.
VBS WISH TREE – There are many items that will be needed to make our VBS successful again this year. We have a “wish tree” set up in the chapel where teachers will be hanging requests for items they need. More items will be added to the tree as we continue our planning. If you are interested in helping with this special ministry, please take a request off the tree, purchase the item, and return it to the tree table by the date needed. Thank you for your help and generosity.
Sky VBS – registration forms are available on the book nook in the chapel. Register early! Space is limited and you won’t want to miss the fun!
“Your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, ‘this is way, walk in it” (Is. 30:21). What a way our God has set before us! Next Sunday we shall receive a special offering for the Eastern District Scholarship Fund. Over the last 33 years the Eastern District has provided approximately $550,00 in scholarship aid to help over 500 students “on their way” as they prepare to become pastors, teachers, and other professional church workers who will serve in our churches, schools, and other agencies. Our participation in this offering will continue that tradition and help it to expand. If you are unable to be with us on June 3rd, you may wish to make a contribution by placing an envelope marked “Eastern District Scholarship Fund” in the offering plate today or by leaving it at the Church Office. Please make checks payable to our church and write “Eastern District Scholarship” in the notation.
Heart, Love, & Soul Pantry- During May & June, we will be collecting donations of toilet paper for Heart, Love, & Soul Pantry in Niagara Falls. Beside food, this is their most requested item. It is something that is needed everyday, and the cost adds up for those who are struggling to bay their bills and provide the necessities of life for their families. We have tables set up in the chapel and narthex, and your donations will be delivered to Heart & Soul in July.
Special Mission Envelopes – May and June have been designated for Habitat for Humanity’s Tornado Disaster Response. There have been over 330 confirmed tornadoes in the U.S. so far this year, causing much destruction and many deaths. Habitat for Humanity is helping to repair and rebuild in the hardest hit areas. Lutheran World Relief calls Habitat their “trusted partner” and encourages our support of their efforts. Social Ministries has voted to match donations up to $400 so that we can send a significant donation to help our neighbors in the Midwest and Southeastern United States.
