Book Collection for McLernand School
Community Ministry News Flash! Several people have asked us if we were going to be collecting gently used children’s books for McClernand school like we did two summers ago. The answer is yes!! We will have a collection box sitting in the back of the church during the months of June, July and the first part of August. We appreciate your continued interest in this project. McClernand is always so appreciative of this support.

Pentecost Weekend May 23 & 24, 2015
We Celebrate the Festival of Pentecost by wearing red. Please wear red to remember the tongues of flame as well as the blood of the martyrs who have died in the name of Christ.
One of our eighth graders will participate in the Affirmation of her Baptism as she becomes a confirmed member of Historic Grace Lutheran Church on Pentecost Saturday, May 23, 2015 at 5:00pm. We will also recognize and celebrate with those who can join us from the Confirmation class 50 years ago at Historic Grace Lutheran Church.
Youth Group Event June 7, 2015
YOUTH GROUP will be having a pizza party at the church on June 7th from 11:30ish to 1ish. Pizza and beverages will be served and we'll follow up with some outside games and activities, as long as weather permits. All kids are welcome and free to bring a friend or two. Parents can feel free to stay or leave. Please RSVP to Sarah at firstname.lastname@example.org by June 4th so we know how much pizza to have on hand!
