33 souls were able to safely get to the service at Grace on Sunday, April 15. Many churches had to cancel their services, including Resurrection Lutheran Church off Glenridge. They have rescheduled their service to Wednesday evening, April 18, at 7 pm and are inviting anyone from the Niagara Circuit congregations who missed Sunday’s service to join them. It will be a communion service.
Our next dinner will be at Club Heidelberg for their Folk Arts Open House on Tuesday, May 15 for a schnitzel or sausage dinner, your choice, for only $12. The doors open at 4:30 pm and Grace members are asked to meet at 5:30 at our reserved tables. Band Europe will be playing and the Alpenroesl Dancers will be performing. Come see the various Folk Arts Ambassadors, including our own Katie Juritsch, Miss Club Heidelberg. Please RSVP by Sunday, May 13 with Mitzi, Chris, or Andrea. Hope to see you there!
We would like to pray for you! If you have a prayer request for yourself or a loved one, please fill out one of the prayer request cards in the pew racks. Place your card in the offering plate or “Prayer Requests” box opposite the library.
The Lutheran Laymen’s League Canada has released the first of three videos that were made for the 500 Anniversary of the Reformation. They deal with the three solas: Grace alone, Faith alone, and Scripture alone. Lutheran Hour Ministries – Canada is now sharing its “Solas Alive”.
“The Box – Sola Gratia * Grace Alone”, “The Fight – Sola Fide * Faith Alone” and “Assembly Required – Sola Scripture * Scripture Alone” videos are now available for viewing. These short, engaging, videos have been created so that you and your friends can use your own social media connections to invite those outside the Christian church to find out more about God and His plan of salvation for all. Solas Alive is being shared on: Lutheran Hour Ministries Canada and Lutheran Laymens League Canada; our YouTube channel Lutheran Laymen’s League of Canada; and the internet at www.SolasAlive.com .
