Trunk-Or-Treat: Divine Grace is hosting a Trunk-or-Treat event on Saturday, October 26, from 4:00-5:00 pm. All children are welcome to come and bring their friends! Costumes are welcome, just please leave any scary stuff at home. There will be vehicles in the back parking lot full of treats for the kids, games, and information about our ministries for those visitors attending. If you would like to sign up help out that day, please sign up on the sheets in the lobby. We are also looking for donations of cider and donuts. It will be a fun and easy way to get people from our community familiar with Divine Grace!

These gifts of love are greatly appreciated by our future pastors and their families. Flyers with the list of items needed are in the church entryway. Donations are due by November 3.

Lions Game: Once again this year arrangements have been made for a WELS Day at Ford Field. This year’s game will be on Sunday, December 29, as the Lions take on the Green Bay Packers.

Tickets may only be purchased at a discounted rate through a special website set up just for this event at www.detroitlions.com/wels.
