JUNE SPECIAL MISSION ENVELOPES have been designated to support CAMP PIONEER. Concordia Lutheran Ministries has purchased the property and Friends of Pioneer will operate and manage the camp. Both groups are extensions of LCMS. This arrangement is allowing a fresh start, completely debt free! Every dollar raised or donated will go directly into the ministry of Pioneer to restore, expand, and enhance the facility and its ministry. You can support Camp Pioneer by using your June mission envelope, or by donating on the Grace web page under “special mission” before the end of June.
TWO MORE WEEKS TO “STOCK THE SHOPPE”–continuing through Father’s Day (June 20), we have tables available in the chapel and narthex to accept donations of new baby clothes, diapers, and baby toiletries for SUMMIT LIFE OUTREACH CENTER. Summit is a Christian organization located on Pine Avenue (near the Niagara Falls City Market) that is devoted to helping young women who find themselves in unplanned pregnancy situations. Their clients receive free counseling as well as pregnancy and parenting education. Their “earn while you learn” program awards credits for attendance at counseling and educational sessions, and the credits can be used to “purchase” needed baby supplies in their “Parenting Shoppe”. Your donations will help to stock the Parenting Shoppe.
IT’S NOT TOO LATE to take a BABY BOTTLE BANK from our Summit Life Outreach tables and fill them with your spare change. The money raised from this annual fundraiser will help to purchase supplies needed by the volunteers at Summit. Please return your banks to the office or to Alice Moll by Father’s Day (June 20). Thank you for your generosity!
