Announcements for Sunday, June 13th

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.

NEXT SUNDAY IS THE LAST OPPORTUNITY TO “STOCK THE SHOPPE”–Tables are 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.

PLEASE RETURN YOUR baby bottle banksfrom our Summit Life Outreach tables to Alice Moll or the office by NEXT SUNDAY.  The money raised from this annual fundraiser will help to purchase supplies needed by the volunteers at Summit.  Thank you for your generosity!

A THANK YOU was received from Wings Flights of Hope (our March special mission project), advising us that our donation will provide fuel for FOUR life-changing Flights of Hope for those with serious medical issues.  Everyone who works at Wings is a volunteer, so your donations went directly to funding the cost of flying their planes.  Thank you to those who donated toward the support of this organization!
