Join some Grace crafters on Thursday afternoon at 1:00 January 14th, 2016 to make teddy bears! Someone has donated the supplies, and we will work on making them. You don’t need any particular skills, just a willing spirit. These Bears will be set aside for the bazaar. Any questions, call Sue Halsey.
~SUNDAY SCHOOL CHRISTMAS PROGRAM ~
The Christmas program is coming! Please join us this coming Sunday, December 13th, at the 9:15 service for Grace Lutheran Church’s Sunday School program!
GIVE A GOAT OR A CHICKEN AND STRENGTHEN A FAMILY !!
Families struggling to survive in extreme poverty find life-giving hope in the form of a goat or chicken. These farm animals provide the two-fold benefit of generating income and supplying protein-rich food and dairy. The combination of two goats can quickly produce a small herd. Let’s give generously!!
Get your Book Mark Stocking Stuffers or just a great gift from the heart! Goats $40.00 and Chickens $10.00. All Goats and chickens go to the Namnyaki Girls Secondary School. The girls are learning how to feed and care for the goats and chickens as part of their school curriculum. By learning these animal husbandry skills, many girls will be able to start small businesses in their villages upon graduation. LET’S GIVE GENEROUSLY!!
Stop by the church office to get more info, or call 320-679-1062.
Thank you to all who donated food and time to the community Thanksgiving Dinner. It was a huge success. We served 189 in the Family Life Center and delivered 47 meals. The free will donation brought in $851.00 and will be donated to the Local Food Pantry.
Recently we have had several requests for Foster Kid Bags and we find our supplies for infants and young teens is depleted. If you are able, we could use diapers (newborn-size 4), baby shampoo, soap and lotion, wipes, etc. The older kids could use hairbrushes, hair clips and binders, notepads, small in expensive hand held games, flashlights, etc. Thanks for being so generous.
We want your input and ideas about the 9:15 worship and music as mentioned in the bulletin. Worship and music ministry is asking all those interested in sharing their thoughts and ideas to come to a meeting in the Nicodemus Room (meeting room in the office area) this coming Sunday @ 10:30. Please come to share, to listen, to join in the Spirits work.
