Grace Lutheran Church Little Free Library

Grace Lutheran Church is an official site for the Little Free Library.  It is located in front of the Wernecke Grace House.  Books are available to all who pass by our property.  Take a Book…Leave a Book is the theme of the library.  If you take a book, you can return it or share it with others. It does not need to be returned to the library.  If you have a book to share, you just place it in the library. Currently books range in age from infant to 5th grade. We are excited about this new adventure at Grace.

Sunday, October 28, 2018 – Grace’s annual Treat-Or-Treat
Time is yet to be determined. This activity was started about 30 years ago when a small child in Grace’s congregation wanted to know why only children got treats for Halloween. Since then Grace’s youngest members, dressed in their Halloween costumes, have given homemade crafts and mostly non-edible treats to the residents of Trinity Place Apartments right around Halloween time. In May the children return with flowers for the residents.

The residents of Trinity Place Apartments enjoy seeing our children dressed in their costumes. The long time residents look forward to receiving the crafts, other treats and visiting with the children. The newer residents are genuinely surprised to receive treats from the children.

The children need items to give to the senior citizen residents. Some suggestions are listed below. Feel free to come up with your own ideas. There will be a collection box placed in the narthex.

Small, unscented body and hand lotions
Small size shampoo and conditioners
Unscented soaps Dish cloths and towels
Hot pads or trivets Kitchen scrubbers
Dish scrubbers Soap holders
Thermometers Rain gauges
Wooden spoons Spatulas or pancake turners
Tooth brushes Non-slip socks
