Save the date – Summer Day Camp, August 5-8!   9am-12pm.   Help us jumpstart a new summer experience.  We will explore “Who Is My Neighbor” through Bible stories, games, and local trips.   Grace and partner Good Samaritan Episcopal invite all kids, friends, and grandkids entering grades 1- 6 as campers and older youth as volunteers.  We can share God’s love in our neighborhood.  Look for registration forms and volunteer opportunity information soon.

Speaking of Camp — we will once again be offering partial camperships to Camp Lutherwood.  Applications are available, and we encourage you to apply!  Thank you, Grace Lutheran Church Foundation, for once again making this possible.  Check out available camp experiences at www.lutherwoodoregon.org and find the campership form in the entryway, church office, or from Donna King.

The March Partners in Faith meeting was rescheduled to Friday, April 12th.  Dinner is at 6pm, with a program to follow at 7pm.  Baked potatoes provided — just bring a topping to share and/or a green side dish or dessert.  A program about Ireland will be provided by Jim Wernz.

Plans are in motion for a new Church Photo Directory! 

Save the date — photo opportunities April 25-27 here at Grace Lutheran.  Families and pets welcome!

More information to come…

The Spring Clean Up is scheduled for Saturday,  April 6,  from 8:30 AM to 3 PM.   The Property Committee would appreciate some volunteer help that day to get Grace Church in shape for the summer season.  I know many of you volunteered to help in the last years Spring Clean Up and it would be wonderful if you could make time to help us again this year.   We will have a noon lunch served at 11:30 AM to all the volunteers.   We will enjoy some fellowship time together and you may even get to know other members of Grace Church that you did not know before.  There are tasks to be done both inside and outside.   Bring your vacuum cleaner with floor attachment to clean under the kneels and pews.  Bring your favorite tool to weed and hoe around the shrubs and flower beds.  We will spread bark mulch in the afternoon.

Thanks,
Ron Larson
