The Grace Lutheran Chancel Choir sings a very powerful song entitled "I Believe." The words in the song were taken from a message etched on a wall by a Jew in a Nazi concentration camp in Cologne, Germany during World War II:
"I believe in the sun, even when it’s not shining, I believe in love, even when I don’t feel it, And I believe in God, even when He is silent."

The Florida Bahamas Synod Assembly meets June 10-12 this year and their service project is helping the homeless population by collecting packages of new socks and by making sleeping mats out of plastic shopping bags. (It takes between 500-700 bags to make one mat!) If you would like to help, please bring a new package of any type of adult socks to the fellowship hall by June 5 so that your delegates can take them to the assembly in Daytona Beach.
Pastor Jenn also challenges Grace to see if we can collect enough bags to make one bed. Please bring bags to fellowship hall by June 5 as well - and indicate on the clipboard how many bags you brought. Thanks!
