Denise Rodi began a new job as secretary of Holy Redeemer Lutheran Church, which became Amazing Grace in 1998. On April 29, 2018 a surprise celebration was held in her honor by the members of Amazing Grace.  Everything from a special blessing, power point presentation and video clips from her family and her church family, special prayers, gifts, beautiful music, to a delicious luncheon. 

Thank you from the bottom of of my heart to everyone for the wonderful surprise party. For the flowers, special prayer, blessing, gifts, the luncheon (which was amazing), to those who made the food, set up, cleaned up etc. Yes! I was totally surprised!  I thank you for being a special part of my life for the past 30 years!  I love you all.  Denise Rodi.

Blessing Bags

At Family Sunday School February 5th we made over 50 “blessing bags” for our members to distribute to people on the “streets”. These bags include:

  • snacks
  • hand warmers
  • tooth brushes/paste
  • combs
  • soap
  • bus tickets
  • hand wipes
  • kleenex
  • hand lotion. etc. (all small sizes).

We will be doing this again in the near future. Donations accepted anytime!

I gave a blessing bag to a young gentleman who looked very down and out (he was standing in the middle of the road, on my driver’s side). I reached for one of my bags and when I handed it to him he was very thankful. I told him that God loves him and so do I. This was in the area of Ford Road and I-94.

Prayer Blanket Ministry

Our Prayer Blanket Ministry makes prayers real to those who are having surgery or who are suffering serious illness or infirmity or any other struggle in life.

Brought together into each blanket is the gift of prayer: the symbol of faith in God and in His power to comfort, strengthen and heal. This ministry began in April 2006, and as of March 6, 2017 244 blankets have been made.

Prayer blanket request forms are found in the attendance books. To request a blanket for a member of Amazing Grace who is in the hospital or seriously ill, fill one out and place it in the offering plate, or contact Denise Rodi.

Comfort, comfort my people,
says your God.
Speak tenderly to Jerusalem,
and proclaim to her
that her hard service has
been completed,
that her sin has been paid for,
that she has received from the
LORD’s hand
double for all her sins.
— Isaiah 40: 1,2
