On Sunday, Sept. 30, Pr. Jean DeVoll-Donaldson will join us in worship. She will preach and after the service lead us in conversation about stewardship. Everyone is encouraged to attend. We are a stronger, more vital congregation when different voices are heard, new
ideas raised, and when work together toward a common vision. Bring your curiosity, imagination, and your deep love for Christ and Our Saviour's. God is up to something wonderful through us and we all have gifts to share. Please read the
Blessing of the Backpacks
On Saturday, Sept. 22 and Sunday, Sept. 23, we will have a "blessing of backpacks." Students of all ages can bring their backpack to worship and receive a special blessing and name tag as the new school year begins.
New Member Reception
The New Member Reception will be held following the Saturday, 9/29 worship service instead of Sunday the 30th. There are 8 new members to welcome. Reception in the fellowship hall: Sundaes on Saturday (Build your own ice cream sundae.)
The old carpet was removed a the new carpet is going down, see some pictures of the work and stop down and take a look at it.
Wednesday, Sept. 26, we will resume Gather Round, our Wednesday night worship service. We do not follow the traditional liturgy. The style is more informal and conversational, yet at the center is Christ, as revealed through God's Word and the Sacraments, our prayers and songs. Families are encouraged to attend and participate in readings and prayers as you are comfortable doing so. Sometimes we will remain downstairs and worship in the fellowship area; other nights we will gather in the sanctuary. We are always looking for people who would like to do special music and lead songs. Talk with Pr. Pat if you have questions or would like to help with music.
