Divine Grace Lutheran Church News and Events

Sunday, June 13, 2021

Altar Flowers:  The flowers that beautify our altar this week were given by the Ross family.

Holiday Weekend Services: We plan to keep our normal service schedule for the July 4th weekend, even though July 4 falls on a Sunday this year. We will have a service on July 1 at 7 pm, and at 8 and 10:30 am on July 4.  There will be NO Bible Class on July 4.

Farewell for Miss Huebner: We are planning to have a farewell for Miss Huebner after the late service on Sunday, June 13, beginning at 11:30 am. Please join us as we thank her for her faithful service here among us, bid her a fond farewell, and ask for God’s blessings on her ministry in her new call. We plan to serve Jets pizza and salad, and then ice cream and toppings for dessert. The farewell will be held in the gym with tables spaced apart for individual families.

Sunday Bible Class:  Bible Class is held in-person and via Zoom every Sunday morning at 9:15 am.  Please join us as we go through the course, “Where They Walked,” a video-assisted study of several key cities from the pages of the Bible, and the things that happened in them.  NOTE: There will not be Bible Class on June 20, 27 or July 4.

Bibles and Hymnals Available:  We have placed some hymnals and Bibles in the church lobby for worshipers who might like to make use of them during the service. Please help yourself to them. You may leave them on a pew after the service for the ushers to sanitize.

Mask Usage:  The Council has decided that we will adopt the following in terms of our worship services:

  • Thursday Night Worship will continue to be a mask optional service. The balcony will continue to be reserved for those wishing to wishing to wear a mask and not be on the main floor.
  • Sundays, 8 am Worship will continue to be a mask required service.
  • Sundays, 10:30 am Worship will also become a mask optional service (with the balcony reserved for those who wish to wear a mask and not be on the main floor). 

Ushers Needed:  Chairman of Parish Services, Eric Nordlie, is still looking to increase the number of ushers who are able to serve at worship. Ushers, if you are ready to come back to worship and are willing to serve, please reach out to him.  The current usher schedule can be found on the website under Church News.

AmazonSmile:  Divine Grace Lutheran Church has been issued a $79.34 donation from the AmazonSmile Foundation as a result of AmazonSmile program activity between January 1 and March 31, 2021.

Welcoming the Valus Family:  New principal, Mr. Nolan Valus, and new Grades 1-2 teacher, Mrs. Courtney Valus, are looking forward to beginning their work among us here at Divine Grace. They and their two daughters will be moving to Lake Orion during the last few weeks in June, and will begin serving on July 1.  Keep on the lookout for information regarding their installation service and a time to officially welcome them. Pray also that the Lord would bless their move to Lake Orion!

Church Softball Schedule:  If you’d like to come and watch our Jets-Divine Grace Softball Team play, games are held each Wednesday night. The games are played at Friendship Park on Clarkston Road in Lake Orion. For the schedule for the remaining games, click here.
