Announcements for Sunday, August 1

Donations of SCHOOL SUPPLIES, SOCKS, AND UNDERWEAR are the being accepted for our summer mission program.  There are tables available in the narthex and chapel to accept your gifts.  All donations will be distributed directly to our inner-city elementary children in need by the teachers and nurses at Niagara Street, Kalfas, and Harry Abate schools in September as they identify their student’s needs.  Thank you for supporting this project.  We have been in contact with the schools, and they have assured us that they have many children that will be grateful for your help as they begin their new school year.

AUGUST SPECIAL MISSION ENVELOPES have been designated to help Heart, Love & Soul on Ontario Avenue in Niagara Falls.  This agency provides over 200 free meals daily to those in need, and are currently aiding over 700 people from their food pantry.  In addition to their nutrition related services, they offer health services, as well as assistance with issues such as housing, financial need, transportation, and substance abuse.  They also maintain a “necessary shop” for their guests which provides toiletries and other items that cannot be purchased with SNAP benefits (food stamps).  If you wish to support Heart, Love & Soul, please place your August mission envelope in the offering plate or donate to “special missions” online at gracenf.org before the end of the month.

Community Party!  Thursday, August 19th, 6-8 pm.  If you would like to give out treats or lead a game, you can do that from the trunk of your car or by raising a canopy you provide!  Sign up at either sanctuary entrance.

Donations requested: Individually packaged candy, snacks or kids’ drinks to hand out at the Community Party.  Please label them “Community Party” and bring them to the “Ladies Lounge”.

The 2021 FLOWER CHART still has open dates for the remainder of the year and is hanging in the narthex. Cost for a centerpiece is $45, or you can choose two vases at a cost of $56. If you sign up or already have signed up for a date, please find the altar flower order form outside either sanctuary entrance. Please complete the form and return to the church office no later than the Tuesday before your date.
