VBS 2019 – The time is fast approaching for Grace Lutheran Vacation Bible School 2019. The dates are July 29th – Aug. 2nd. Please prayerfully consider volunteering your time to help the youth of the area hear the Gospel for possibly the first time! The theme this year is ROAR, LIFE IS WILD, BUT GOD IS GOOD. ROAR takes place in Africa, and children will imagine they are on a trip to the Serengeti. This year, there is a website to log onto to register as a volunteer, and to also register students. This will make the planning much easier, and hopefully help with the registration bottleneck that always seems to occur on opening night. There will also be forms on the tables in the back of the church for those not computer oriented; but use of the website would be much appreciated. The website is:

Please put paper forms in the offering plate, or leave on Nikki’s desk in church office. Any questions, please contact Toni Leininger 937-726-1755.


Mission Committee Summer Projects

Once again the Mission Committee will be posting the list of members that many need help with summer projects. We do have a list of senior members that we have helped in the past, but we want to make sure we are not leaving anyone out that feels they many need help this summer. Please do not hesitate to reach out to Greg Woolley (538-1888) or Julie Klopfenstein (726-6402) if you would like to be on that list, or if you think of a member who should be on that list. We would like to get our list completed by May 31st so that we can get this out the first part of June. For those that are able, please consider signing up to help and/or visit one of these members. This is a great thing to do as a family as well and it is such a fulfilling project for all ages and parties involved. You definitely build a lasting relationship with your fellow Christian brothers and sisters!

Mission Committee Looking for New Members

The Mission Committee would love to get new members involved. Please consider coming to a Mission Committee meeting to see what it is about and if you have any mission or fundraiser projects we would be glad to hear about them. Our meetings are the first Wednesday of every month at 6:00 pm at the church. Please contact Greg Woolley, Marilyn Kohler, Julie Klopfenstein, Marge Beam, or Marcia Davis if you would like further details.
