At the July 31 voter's meeting, Pastor Franzo brought up some changes that he would like to see happen at Grace Church. 
**He would like to see a...

**Mother's Room created in the back of the church.  This room would be for parents to take children that need some special care---ie changing, feeding, calming down, etc...  The east wall of this room would be one-way glass so that those inside could see out (and hear the church service), but those outside could not see in.  It would also serve as a place for children to go when the parents are in choir practice, bible study, etc...

**new message sign put up outside---replacing the old one that we have their now.  This would be a moving message sign.

**new sound system installed that is easier to work and actually works!

**change in the way we do Communion.  We would go back to the common cup--but also have the choice of individual cup.  He would like to start this on Reformation Sunday, October 30th.

**replacement purchased for the old communion-ware.  Carmen Viner offered to purchase this in her family's name.

**Past News & Notes from the Sunday bulletin will now be saved in the Members folder on this website.

The Organization of WELS Lutheran Seniors (OWLS) cordially invites you to join them for their annual convention. This year’s convention will be held at the Stoney Creek Hotel & Convention Center 3060 South Kinney Coulee Road, Onalaska, WI 54650, October 10-13, 2022.     This special bulletin invitation is going out to the WELS churches in the Onalaska/La Crosse, WI area. Area church members, age 55 and up, may wish to attend the daytime and early evening events, and commute from home each day, instead of staying at the hotel. Full details can be found by going to www.csm.welsrc.net/download-csm/owls-convention/ Scroll down to DOWNLOADABLE RESOURCES, including the Schedule, Workshops and Presentations, and Registration. Discounts are available before September 10, 2022.

Over the past number of years, the OWLS have supported our European Civilian Chaplaincy with a gift of $50,000.00 each year. We wish to continue that tradition. Besides, receiving donations through-out the year from individuals and organizations, the European Civilian Chaplaincy gets a jump start from contributions taken at the Convention’s opening service and the silent auction.

SILENT AUCTION: All attendees are encourage to make donations to the silent auction, with a special push for our area members to do so, whether you attend the convention activities or not. Plan now on what you might like to enter. Homemade goodies and theme baskets have been popular items. Let your imagination run wild. If you have any questions, you can contact TJ or Myron Fluegge, coordinators for the silent auction. You may email at flueggemtj@hotmail.com or call 507-359-2424. Hope to see you at the OWLS Convention!
