     Beginning on Sunday, December 15, after the spectacular Christmas program presented by the Christian Education Department of Grace Lutheran Church, located at 493 Forest Avenue in downtown Glen Ellyn,  the children and teens from the Christian Ed department began two major drives to help disaster relief and needy families.  Luminary
bags were assembled during the first two weeks in December and were on sale to the congregation after the worship service on Dec. 15.  The luminarias come in kits of twelve and all the money earned from the sale of these kits will be donated to the ELCA Lutheran Disaster Fund to aid the families who lost their homes during the November tornadoes.  Along with this major fund drive, the kids also collected loose change from the Grace members and guests after the same service.  The money will be added up and the Christian Ed members will shop for families registered with the Glen Ellyn Junior Women’s Club.  Heidi Hoppe, the new Director of Christian Education at Grace was amazed at the enthusiasm and hard work displayed by all Christian Ed students.  “They not only just presented an outstanding worship service for our entire congregation to share with them, but they immediately went to work collecting loose change and selling luminaria kits.
They are amazing kids!”  For information about the luminary kits call the Grace church office at 630-469-1555 weekdays from 9:30 AM to 12:30 PM.
